Injaz to celebrate volunteer mentors on June 12
Together with 399 volunteer mentors from private companies, including Pepsi, American Chamber of Commerce, Americana, British Petroleum, Citibank, Exxon Mobil, Giza Systems, GSF, HSBC, Mars, Mobinil, Orascom Construction Industries, PWC, Raya, TE Data and USAID, INJAZ Egypt impacted 60,375 students this school year with curriculum on entrepreneurship, financial literacy and work readiness.
Egypt’s revolution was not only an unprecedented historic moment for all Egyptians, but the months following the revolution witnessed a spirit of change of unity and an extraordinary wave of people wanting to give back and lend their support especially in the area of education. Hundreds of Egyptians from across different professions came to Injaz to lend their support and volunteer their time and effort as mentors at schools and universities across Egypt to help empower and inspire the next generation of young Egyptians. Students across public schools and public universities were taught the latest global programs on work readiness financial literacy, and entrepreneurial skills that will help better equip them for their future.
To celebrate this remarkable accomplishment of volunteerism, Injaz Egypt will hold a special recognition event on June 12 in partnership with AUC at the Tahrir Campus.
We hope to further encourage Egyptians to take part in this spirit of volunteerism and mentorship at Public Schools and Universities. Egypt’s young generation are in need of our collective support to help invest in their skills and mindsets to empower and inspire them to reach their fullest potential.
