Heya Masr Foundation:

Mission: Heya Masr (She is Egypt) aims to restore the sense of dignity and pride in young Egyptian women by building their self-confidence and empowering them mentally and physically to develop themselves, overcome all sorts of physical and psychological violence, break the cycle of traumas and abuse, and aim for a better future for themselves, and their societies. To generate a multiplier effect for a stronger and more sustainable impact, Heya Masr supports women’s empowerment by parallelly and equally educating not only girls but boys and parents to raise a generation.
