The Focus of Our Work
Coptic Orphans unlocks the God-given potential of children in Egypt through grassroots partnerships and volunteer networks: especially children who have lost their father and the girl child. Both are interconnected groups that face great challenges, but have even greater potential.
- We equip children who have lost a father with resources to access their basic rights through a church-based network of local volunteer advocates and mentors in the Not Alone program.
- We build self-esteem in girls at risk of dropping out of school through interactive activities and one-on-one mentoring through The Valuable Girl Project.
- We connect volunteers from around the globe to Egypt for a three-week summer journey in Serve to Learn.
- Tamkeen builds the capacity of community development associations that support girls and young women in Upper Egypt through work with community development associations in Assiut, Minya, and Sohag.
