CLICK HERE TO BE DIRECTED TO HELP VICTIMS OF EGYPT'S CIVIL UNREST

Launched in the aftermath of the January 25 revolution, the Tahrir Square Foundation supports humanitarian, educational and developmental causes to help build a tolerant, pluralistic, democratic society in Egypt.

The Foundation's immediate aims include:

HUMANITARIAN ASSISTANCE

The Foundation intends to mobilize funding from international donors to properly vetted charities operating in Egypt dedicated to "safety-net" causes. By providing food and medical assistance to the neediest on a "no-strings attached" basis during this critical period, we hope to mitigate the manipulation of Egypt's poor by any political elements in upcoming elections.

EDUCATION & AWARENESS

The Foundation will support education and awareness initiatives, especially those utilizing technology and media to enhance the learning process. An initial advertising campaign promoting unity and tolerance is planned during the high viewership Ramadan season. In addition, a pilot edutainment program is being developed to accelerate voter education in advance of upcoming elections.

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

The Foundation recognizes that the single most important element for long term stability is economic recovery and job creation for Egypt's young population. Towards this end, the Foundation intends to work with multi-lateral government agencies, the private sector and NGO's to promote favorable trade relations, vocational training, and the development of entrepreneurism and small to mid-size enterprises.
