Education First Initiative
Education First project is a social initiative aiming at improving the quality of education in Egyptian public schools, with the objective of building a better future for Egypt.
Education First is targeting all official language schools in Egypt (a total of 687 schools accommodating 1 million students). The project is based on 3 main pillars; training programs for teachers and administrators, extracurricular activities, and initiatives to extend scholarships to high achieving students.
Quest Active team is proud and grateful to have been a part of this initiative. We have volunteered to develop and deliver a full interactive program through a 5 day Youth Leadership Camp for 84 students from 27 governorates at Quest Active’s Adventure Learning Center, located at Sakkara Country Club. The camp was an experiential learning experience using our High Ropes Course and a number of other platforms, designed to build character and equip the students with junior leadership skills.
Students embarked on a comprehensive learning journey for 5 days. We observed as the students evolved and changed. As we came to the conclusion of the camp, there was clear evidence that these students’ lives have been profoundly impacted on both educational and personal fronts .
This success wouldn’t have been possible without Vodafone Foundation who was the event’s main sponsor; they have adopted this project since the very beginning, supported in driving this social change, and helped improving the lives of those students through the focus on education
