Many Egyptians are experiencing a renewed passion for volunteerism, reflecting a spirit of building a new Egypt
After Egypt’s revolution, our schools faced significant delays to their schedules. After being closed for several weeks, schools were very behind, leaving little time for planned Injaz courses on entrepreneurship, work readiness and financial literacy.
On the other hand, many Egyptians were experiencing a renewed passion for volunteerism, reflecting a spirit of building a new Egypt. Feeling the momentum of this spirit ourselves, Injaz responded to these changes by launching a new format that allowed public school students to complete an entire Injaz course on in one day: "Injaz -IN-A-DAY."
Together with volunteer mentors from private companies, including Mars, Mobinil and AmCham, Injaz Egypt impacted over 8755 students this semester and is on schedule to reach a total of 58,000 students this school year.
Using this format, we were able to reach in just one month:
5660 Students for More than Money (4160 in Cairo and 1500 in Upper Egypt)
3095 Students for It’s My Business (2595 in Cairo and 500 in Upper Egypt)
More Than Money: Teaches students about earning, spending, sharing, and saving money, and innovative businesses they can start or jobs they can perform to earn money. Through hands-on activities, students develop a better understanding of the relationship between what they learn at school and their successful participation in a worldwide economy.
It's My Business: Emphasizes entrepreneurship and provides a strong focus on social studies, reading, and writing skills. Students use critical thinking to learn entrepreneurial skills that support positive attitudes as they explore and enhance their career aspirations.
