Reda Boshra, the priest in charge of St. Paul church in Ezbet El-Nakhl. The workshop aims to support women by teaching them, especially the unemployed ones, to fix cloths and recycle the old ones.

During the opening, Mrs. Nahed, the manager of Ezbet El-Nakhl Community Center, spoke of importance of development and education. Then she represented an overview of the youths’ achievements after learning about Computers and Technology.

In his speech, Bishop Mouneer affirmed on the need of strong will and hard work to cause a difference in Egypt.
