In line with Sustainable Development Goals - Paragraph # 11 "Sustainable Cities and Communities"

One scheme that Lafarge Egypt celebrated in Cairo, Helwan district, in cooperation with 3 NGOs, is a literacy program and small enterprise initiative designed to help 503 women read, write and gain practical skills to allow them to start their own home-based businesses. A sewing center to train 92 women was added to the program, which increased the success rate of this local program leading for a better quality of life.

We joined hands with the Egyptian Food Bank in 2010-2011by signing a protocol of cooperation to help fight hunger in Egypt’s poorest areas as part of expanding our community development initiatives. Through the protocol development, awareness, educational and feeding programs were developed.

Rebuilding Homes in Aswan 

The flood that occurred in Aswan in 2010 was a devastating natural disaster with heavy rains destroying many people’s homes, leaving them homeless. Lafarge Egypt took the initiative to rebuild 400 homes in the small town of Aakab in Aswan, to help restore the damage done by the floods.
