Tamkeen Geographical Area


Tamkeen will focus its activities and implementation in three governorates: Minya, Assiut, and Sohag. According to the UNDP 2008 Human Development Report, Egypt’s poverty map confirmed that poverty remains highly concentrated in rural Upper Egypt. Over 760 of the poorest 1,000 villages are located in Minya, Assiut, and Sohag. There is low civic awareness and participation in these areas, and some of these villages are so remote and scattered that it is difficult to reach out to them with projects. Female youth in these far-flung locations are particularly disadvantaged. At the same time, small community development associations in these villages are capable of playing a pivotal role in promoting civic awareness. Tamkeen will reach out to empower those associations that might not have received significant support in the past.
