In an attempt to support the Egyptian education reform, the UK will be granting Egypt an amount of £12 million through the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). Egypt has notably prioritized education through the national development blueprint, Vision 2030. Now, Egypt is taking a step toward downsizing illiteracy rates and recognizing the crucial importance of education.
The British Ambassador, Geoffrey Adams, believes in the true power of investing in the education of the youth and thinks that it will lead to a better future. “We are proud to announce a new package worth £12 million to support education reform in Egypt. An investment in Egyptian youth is an investment in Egypt’s future,” said the Ambassador. The funding will include both teacher training and supporting children’s education throughout the Egyptian.
