INTEGRATED DEVELOPMENT OF EZBET EL ASSAAL
Ezbet El Assaal is located in the heart of Shubra, and is Cairo’s oldest slums. In May 2012 SODIC signed a three-way cooperation protocol for the integrated development of Ezbet El Assaal – a pilot project with the objective of creating a successful replicable model. In May 2013 the project witnessed the completion of its first phase with 15 buildings completely renovated, rebuilt or refurbished in Abdel Dayem Street, home to 78 families. The sewage network of Abdel Dayem Street was also completely renovated and connections made to all houses.
Starting January 2014 Egyptian fund 306306 began supporting the project, giving it access to diverse funding and multiplying impact. The partnership has seen over 100 homes renovated. Future Lights for Development Organisation also developed 10 nurseries in El Assaal in 2014, to provide high-quality preschool education for nearly 1,000 children as part of the holistic development approach to this project.
We are always fund raising for the projects we support to multiply impact and involve our wider community.
