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.
From time to time we run across opportunities to further connect the Copts abroad with development work in the homeland. In this case, the homeland is Sudan.
