Hayat Project: Human Security through Inclusive Socio- Economic Development in Upper Egypt

The project is implemented in Minya governorate (four villages in Edwa district and one village in Maghagha district). The project will establish local forums in the target area aiming at ensuring inclusiveness and participation from all segments of the society and economy of those communities within its public local development investments and other actions. It seeks to add value to the existing legally established local development system in Egypt. The project will work with youth on two levels:

  •  increase youth employability and skills development through building on local available resources; interventions will focus on entrepreneurial skills, technical and soft skills.
  • support youth initiatives and encourage social entrepreneurship among youth in the target area. The project will support local NGOs implementing community development projects in the target area, aiming to develop their capacities to manage these projects efficiently and effectively.
