Volunteer Egypt

Think of Egypt and you probably think of pyramids and sand. Well, yes, but for the country's population of 72 million life is fast and cramped with most of the population squeezed in overcrowded conditions along the life supporting Nile River.

Poverty is on the increase after the uprising against President Hosni Mubarak in 2011 left the country in increasing social and political instability with foreign income from tourism dropping off both exponentially and alarmingly. Despite being the second largest economy in the Arab world and relatively rich by African standards Egypt remains in 118th place out of 186

countries and territories in 2013 when ranked in terms of life expectancy, literacy, access to knowledge and the living standards of a country. That was two years after the revolution. A recent UN report suggested that 30% of children in Egypt were stunted through malnourishment and two out of every five lived in poverty. In all likelihood the situation has deteriorated in the last few years since that report was published as has the number of street children living on the streets of Cairo.

There are volunteer work opportunities in Egypt however not on the scale of pre-revolution years. Nevertheless you can get involved in a number of volunteer work projects, but seek safety advice from your foreign office first as the safety of foreigners is not what it was. If you run or know of a volunteer work project in Egypt let us know by contacting us here. We look forward to hearing from you!
