  A national project aims at eradicating illiteracy in Egypt
by Adli Al-Baraqouni - Humanitarian Voice - 2011-10-05

Amr Khaled ,a very well-known Egyptian Muslim activist

Dr. Amr Khaled ,a very well-known Egyptian Muslim activist and a television preacher, has launched his national project (Science is power) aims at eradicating illiteracy of 120 thousand people in Egypt, as a first stage of a bigger project that will include about 3 million Egyptians,during next year.

The project was recently launched during a big ceremony organized at the public amphitheater of Al-Menia governorate, and was attended by major-general Siraj-el-Dine , Al-Menia governor, and Dr. Mohammad Al-Biblawi , the chairman of Life Makers Charity, and a big number of people.

Dr.Amr Khaled, according to the website (Ahram gate), talked about the necessity of building a new society , in Egypt, on the wake of Egypt’s revolution on the 25th of last January.

He explained that the new Egyptian society should be built on the basis of work, social, and cultural development that contribute in raising the country’s banner, noting that he has big confidence in the Egyptian youth capabilities to achieve more than what is required during the first year, and reach the target of eradicating the illiteracy of 3 million people during next year.

Dr.Khaled added that Egypt is considered the worst amongst nine world’s countries in the field of illiteracy “which is not befitting at all with its status within the world, therefore it became the duty of the Egyptian youth to contribute strongly towards the progress of the country”.

When asked about the turnout size in the project , he answered, that some people warned him that the volunteerism culture is lacking among the Egyptian youth, and that would certainly has a negative impact on his project in Egypt, but he added that “ I have a strong faith and confidence in the Egyptian youth capability to achieve more than what is expected from them during the first year”.

Dr. Amr Khaled pointed out the number of registered volunteers has reached, so far, 500 which is equal to one fourth of the target of 2000, in order to make good changes during the next period.

From his part, the Al-Menia governor , major-general Siraj-el-Dine , took the initiative, as a volunteer, and filled an application for ten persons to teach them reading and writing , urging all male and female youth to take part in this project to achieve a comprehensive development.

The project of “ Science is power” is organized by “ Life Makers Charity” in cooperation with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
