Partner: Ecos do Sur


Year of Implementation: 2016


Allies was 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, by increasing their social participation.


It was a great opportunity that allows youth participants to appreciate the people’s diverse cultures, gain knowledge and skills, and be more confident and self-reliant in the professional life.
