Program Coordinator–Cairo

The Program Coordinator contributes to the overall success of Coptic Orphans' programs and projects by supporting the implementation of programs/projects by departments, staff, management, and other internal/external partners. Specifically, the Program Coordinator takes a leading role in overseeing TAMKEEN project activities, and provides logistical and administrative support for facilities management and training, so as to enhance the performance of 15 partner community development associations (CDAs). TAMKEEN, a two-year project ending on June 30, 2016, is funded by USAID and implemented by Coptic Orphans.  

TAMKEEN is an activity that developed out of the conviction that civic awareness and engagement are critically important.  The overall goals of this activity are to increase the civic engagement of female school-aged youth ages 6-23 and to support CDAs' youth outreach activities using a three-tiered engagement approach: 1) Awareness; 2) Access; and 3) Practice.
