Project Title and Description

"How Lack of Resources Hampers Education in Egypt "        Goal 1    Goal 4  Goal 5

Course:     EAP 1586

Instructor:  Anouchka Rachelson

Several factors negatively impact quality education in Egypt. Some of these are poverty, lack of resources in schools, and gender inequality. The biggest drawback that Egypt has is poverty since the economy affects children’s quality of life, and many times parents prefer that their children work and not study. In our project, we investigated solutions offered by many organizations which currently help the government of Egypt to ensure that anyone has the right to an education. We can also unite and become change agents so that all children can receive quality education.
