With sparse tourism and continuing unrest in Egypt, some might wonder if there is any room left to experience life in Egypt and make a difference there. The good news is, there is. Things are safe enough in most areas in Egypt to go, so Coptic Orphans is resuming our International Volunteer Program for 2013.
Coptic Orphans workshops teach children a wide range of concepts, from personal hygiene to values about respect and tolerance. We ensure that our children are aware of the events happening in their own back yard with the ever-changing environment in Egypt, instead of sheltering them. After the Egyptian Revolution, workshops encouraged widowed mothers and older children to take an active role in their future. Now we continue to reinforce civic responsibility and pride through our age-appropriate workshops about unity.
