It seems like all we see in the media these days is negative news about the Egyptian revolution. Numerous deaths, injustices, and full blown chaos. In the midst of such a tumultuous time for Egypt, however, we have found an INCREDIBLE door of access to advocate and plead for NEW LAND for our community. In mid December key representatives from our community and team presented a proposal to the leading institution for land relocation for slum communities in Egypt and to the Egyptian government! This has been a day we have dreamed about for years! The revolution shut down numerous opportunities for many organizations, but we were fortunate enough to find an open door for advocacy in the midst of it all.
Attached is an excerpt from Al Ahram national newspaper of the proposal for new land presented to the Egyptian government and ISDF for our community.
This is just the beginning..
If you want to support more of our advocacy projects for land relocation, water, and sustainable solar electricity project, please do so by donating, volunteering, or signing up for more updates! More to come for 2012!
