Under the agreement, Allianz Egypt supports "Shabab Balad" (The Young People of the Country) platform by supporting the “Meshwary” program, which is a collaboration between UNICEF and the Ministry of Youth and Sports (MoYS), under the auspices of the Prime Minister. The program aims at empowering young people and building their skills through development programs targeting innovative thinking, decision-making and entrepreneurship skills. This comes in line with Egypt’s sustainable development goals for 2030 vision. "Meshwary" program targets children and youth aged 10 to 24 years old, especially those who belong to the unprivileged social groups, and the program is being implemented in youth centres in 15 governorates representing Upper Egypt, Delta and border governorates.
The signing event was attended by Gen. Ismail el Far, Executive Director and Deputy Minister of MoYS; Ayman Hegazy, Chairman and CEO of Allianz Companies in Egypt, and Jeremy Hopkins, UNICEF Representative in Egypt, as well as several high-profile representation from the government, start-up community, and the private sector.
