Tearfund says goodbye to Egypt, but leaves a continuing legacy.
Tearfund is due to end its 25-year presence in Egypt from the end of March. However the inspirational projects that it has helped to found and shape will continue.
We started working there in 1994. In partnership with Egyptian churches and Christian groups, we have been able to achieve a huge amount throughout cities, slums and rural areas.
Partners in hope
Here are a few of the remarkable projects we’ve helped to birth in recent years with our Egyptian partners:
• Enabling African and Syrian refugees to to access health, nutrition and job-creation services.
• Allowing young people to benefit from lending schemes, which empower them to escape poverty.
• Advocacy work, which has allowed men and women with HIV to access services such as basic healthcare.
• Supporting adult literacy work and encouraging girls to complete their primary school education and pursue further learning with a mentor.
