Staffed exclusively by volunteers – both Egyptian and foreign youth – Better World operates five, mutually reinforcing programs. Says Hany, “Our programs start by having an impact on the individual and eventually seek to impact all of society.” Roughly 1,800 youth participate annually in its capacity-building initiative, which offers courses in world languages, IT, and life skills, along with instruction in resume-writing and interviewing. Courses are offered for two hours each week, with participants receiving certification upon completion.
