Misriyati

Misriyati

Misriyati was inspired by the growing intolerance among the different components of the Egyptian society: religions, social classes and cultural groups. These symptoms revealed the need to work on gaining a new awareness of our reality with its structures and relationships, of improving our competences and skills in dealing with diversity or in meeting conflict, and our re-adoption of values that can enhance peaceful living.

SEKEM

SEKEM

When Dr. Ibrahim Abouleish returned to Egypt in 1977 to start the SEKEM initiative he had a strong vision deep in his heart: In the midst of sand and desert I see myself standing as a well drawing water. Carefully I plant trees, herbs and flowers and wet their roots with the precious drops. The cool well water attracts human beings and animals to refresh and quicken themselves. Trees give shade, the land turns green, fragrant flowers bloom, insects, birds and butterflies show their devotion to God, the creator, as if they were citing the first Sura of the Qu’ran.

CULTNAT

CULTNAT

The Center for Documentation of Cultural and Natural Heritage, CULTNAT, is affiliated with Bibliotheca Alexandrina and supported by the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology. The Center's mandate is to document the various aspects of Egypt's tangible and intangible cultural heritage as well as its natural heritage. This involves the implementation of the national plan of action towards the documentation program, making use of the most up-to-date information technology in collaboration with the national and international specialized organizations.

Nawaya

Nawaya

Nawaya is an Egyptian initiative created to provide extension and advisory services to small-scale, rural communities. Nawaya is deeply concerned for the future of these communities, particularly with regard to food sovereignty and environmental health. Nawaya’s working approach is dictated by its challenge: without the opportunity for rural communities to experience working solutions for sustainable living practices, it is highly unlikely they will adopt them.
