“When we were getting ready to leave I saw a girl about 10 years old holding back tears. It was then I realized how much of an impact we actually made." - Ammy, volunteer 

 

The International Volunteer Program provides volunteers from around the world with opportunities in various field. Past projects have included the construction of a community center for children in rural Egypt, participating in fair-trade micro-economic projects, information systems and organizational development, mentoring at orphanages, and tutoring. But your skills, interests, and imagination set the possibilities.

Volunteers of all ages and fields are welcome to participate. Proficiency in Arabic is not required. You simply partner with Coptic Orphans to create a custom individual or group project in Egypt. Travel any time year round, from one week to three months. Use your professional expertise--or just your gift of passion and willingness to do whatever is needed to change lives.

Despite its long and rich heritage, Egypt’s population has recently been grappling with a number of social and cultural issues including poverty and illiteracy. These issues create an interesting environment that require constant attention and resources. Egypt is an exciting and strategic country in the heart of the Middle East that is always a part of the international arena.

The International Volunteer Program offers an exciting and rewarding experience in one of the most ancient countries of the world. Volunteers gain knowledge of modern Egyptian society, culture, and daily challenges. This is the perfect opportunity for students looking to enhance their resumes with volunteer and travel or anyone looking to share their passion in Egypt.
