Youth Innovation Fund Egypt – First training course up and running

CC Hossam el-Hamalawy – Four years ago, the Arab revolution reached Egypt. Tahrir Square became a symbol of a more democratic, more just Egypt, and a symbol of the resistance against autocratic leaders. Young people in particular had high hopes for the revolution. However, over 40 percent of young people are still without jobs now. According to the latest figures, youth unemployment has significantly increased over the past few years. With the “Youth Innovation Fund Egypt” SAD gives young Egyptians work, and supports them in developing hope for the future. The unemployed young people develop their own environmentally sustainable business ideas, and receive support from SAD and its partner organisations when they implement them. The first training course has been running since February.
