Partner: Ecos do Sur

Year of implementation: 2016

Allies program is an exchange program between Egypt and Spain hosted by two organizations, youth and development consultancy institute (Etijah) in Cairo and ONG Ecos do Sur (ES) at A Coruña based on the common ground experience of both in working in community development and youth capacity building. The program gathered 20 young men and women from Egypt and Spain aged between 18 and 30, and lasted for six months.

Allies program aimed at strengthening the Spanish-Egyptian cultural cooperation through young people who are the main actors of community development, this was achieved by increasing their social participation.

It was a great opportunity that allows youth participants to appreciate the people’s diverse cultures as well as the beauty of this planet, gain knowledge and skills and to become more confident and self-reliant in professional life.
