Meet Ahmed Hany Habib, a Meshwary Ambassador in Giza governorate. This active and super ambitious 19-year-old is a third-year Arts student majoring in Broadcasting and Television.
"I realize that doing the first step is the most difficult part but if you have a vision and you believe in yourself, nothing can stop you; especially when you are surrounded by the right people. The life skills workshops offered through Meshwary literally propelled me into the real world and consequently into adulthood. Today I am enthusiastic, confident, and I have gained so many skills."
"Joining Meshwary was an important milestone in my journey. We were provided with the best coaching and mentoring. Meshwary helped me broaden my horizon and explore my potential. When I started to be a Meshwary -ambassador training young adolescents at the age from 10 to 14 years old, I was always designated to provide the trainees with all the knowledge I had gained,” Ahmed proudly added. “This alone proves how much I have grown with Meshwary and I am forever thankful for it."
“I encourage youth to take part in Meshwary programme because it will boost their self-development and help them reach their full potential,” Ahmed concluded.
"Meshwary" is a programme led by the the Ministry of Youth and Sports and supported by Allianz Egypt as well as development partners. The programme aims at empowering young people and building their skills through development programs targeting innovative thinking, decision-making and entrepreneurship skills.
This is part of the government led efforts towards achieving Egypt’s vision 2030 as it also comes in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
"Meshwary" programme targets children and youth aged 10 to 24 years old, especially the most vulnerable, to build young people’s life, employability and entrepreneurial skills and knowledge that needed to penetrate the labor market. The programme is being implemented in collaboration with Ministry of Youth and Sports since 2008 within youth centres and beyond in 15 governorates representing Upper Egypt, Delta and border governorates.
