What we do

We are a team of young professionals, inspired by the Revolution to collaborate with
partners as diverse as the challenges faced by rural Egypt. We are proponents of sustainable agriculture as the core driver for productive communities that flourish from the bottom-up.
Our initiative, “Nawaya”, recognizes the need for development goals that are pro-poor and promote social and environmental justice.

Our main goal is to train people from rural regions in resilient, sustainable agriculture,
step by step.

1. The locals are involved in the design, creation and organisation.
2. Train and advice.
3. Collaborative realization
