CLICK HERE TO BE DIRECTED TO HELP VICTIMS OF EGYPT'S CIVIL UNREST
Launched in the aftermath of the January 25 revolution, the Tahrir Square Foundation
supports humanitarian, educational and developmental causes to help build a tolerant,
pluralistic, democratic society in Egypt.
The Foundation's immediate aims include:
The Foundation intends to mobilize funding from international donors to properly
vetted charities operating in Egypt dedicated to "safety-net" causes. By providing
food and medical assistance to the neediest on a "no-strings attached" basis during
this critical period, we hope to mitigate the manipulation of Egypt's poor by any
political elements in upcoming elections.
EDUCATION & AWARENESS
The Foundation will support education and awareness initiatives, especially those
utilizing technology and media to enhance the learning process. An initial advertising
campaign promoting unity and tolerance is planned during the high viewership Ramadan
season. In addition, a pilot edutainment program is being developed to accelerate
voter education in advance of upcoming elections.
The Foundation recognizes that the single most important element for long term stability
is economic recovery and job creation for Egypt's young population. Towards this
end, the Foundation intends to work with multi-lateral government agencies, the
private sector and NGO's to promote favorable trade relations, vocational training,
and the development of entrepreneurism and small to mid-size enterprises.
