The Episcopal / Anglican church in Egypt has signed a protocol with “Misr El-Kheir” organisation, a project named “Together we develop Egypt” on Tuesday the 21st of February, 2017.
After the success of “Together for Egypt”- which reshaped the physics of Muslim Imams and Christian priests after understanding each other for almost 3 years, 2013 to 2015; the priests and Imams decided to take it a further step and hence “Together we develop Egypt” was born to light.
The main purpose from this project is to train and qualify young men and women, in addition to some Imams and Priests, the skill of accepting others and to communicate with the youth to be able to spread patriotism between Muslims and Christians. This was held in the Episcopal/ Anglican cathedral in Zamalek by the attendance of some of the Imams and priests who are participating in the initiative.
This initiative is seeking to train a 100 from the young men and women on how to accept others, and to communicate effectively through ten Imams and ten priests in some governorates mostly important in Menya, Port said , Suez, Sharkeia , Cairo and Giza.
According to the program, every Imam and Priest tends to pick ten youth from the surrounding, to obtain training in community development that will lead to propose some solutions to solve problems facing the local communities.
The coordinators of the project are expecting a good number of youth to be qualified to lead in this field by the end of the year, as well as, to create a way of participating with a good impact on the local community through an outreach to spread the culture of peace and tolerance.
