The Daughters of Charity in Egypt serving the education of poor girls in Cairo

The Daughters of Charity have been established in Egypt since 1844 and for 120 years in Abbassieh in Cairo.

They welcome 840 girls from the outskirts of Cairo in their school, many of whom are from ragpicker families.

Sister Amira says:

"We are a community of 3 sisters, 60 teachers, 30 employees, 10 drivers and 6 secretaries.  We try to give equal opportunities, so we don't set income requirements for admission. Every day several buses are sent to pick up the girls from the poor neighbourhoods and bring them to the school.

In general, it is poor families who come to enrol their children with us, the majority of whom are Christian, but always without any religious conditions.

The Christian/Muslim mix is important because it allows the girls to become aware of a difference that is sometimes difficult to accept in the Egyptian community."

The sisters also provide the girls with a daily hot meal.

The project: Equipping the school with computer equipment

The school needs to renew its obsolete computers in order to facilitate the students' education.

"Our needs are growing and the computer room is constantly being used by groups of students one after the other and the computers are getting tired."

"Today, access to computers is essential but some lessons suffer from the obsolescence and inadequacy of computer equipment."

Sister Amira

The objective is therefore to invest in better screens first of all, but also to finance a printer to facilitate the administration of the school and a smart board. This smart board will allow the creation of an interactive classroom for teachers who see the need. It will simplify understanding for students.

These tools will also be of great help to the teaching staff, who will have access to a wide range of content to develop teaching materials.

The beneficiaries

The school's 840 pupils and all teachers will benefit from this digital inclusion project, which currently excludes a large proportion of pupils living in poor areas.

« We want to offer them a quality education and convince them that they are valuable, that they too deserve these great investments. We know that these are projects that make them want to work hard to get by. »

Many thanks for your support and a happy Easter to all of you

Je suis une fille de la charité égyptienne, directrice de l’école de filles Saint Vincent de Paul au Caire a Abbassieh. Notre communauté a pour mission l’éducation des petites filles des quartiers pauvres de la périphérie du Caire et des chiffonniers.
Elles reçoivent une éducation, apprennent les langues, français et anglais et nous leur assurons un repas chaud tous les jours.
