What we do?
We’re On A Mission To Empower Egypt; one child at a time!
Heya Masr aims to increase the voice and agency of adolescent girls and boys (6-18) living in disadvantaged communities. Heya Masr’s flagship self-development program helps correct misconceptions, strengthen self-image, and boost self-esteem and confidence. In Addition, Heya Masr provides training programs for parents, teachers, and employees to create a safer and healthier environment for the young generation of Egypt.
Heya Masr works to undo the harm done to children by developing their character by delivering tools and skills-based programs that enable them to protect themselves from physical and psychological harm to restore their dignity, self-worth and end generation recycle of trauma and abuse.
In addition, our parenting program stems from our belief that if the parents are educated on the significance of gender equality, nutrition, early child marriage, bullying & sexual harassment’s danger, parents are empowered to invest in educating their children, positively impacting their future for generations to come. We pride ourselves on the comprehensiveness of our programs; it is impactful and measured through years on continuous improvement. Participants see improvement in the areas of knowledge, attitude, practices, and behavior.

More about our Program
We pride ourselves on the comprehensiveness and sustainable impact of our program. To explain further these two key points.
Comprehensiveness: It is a holistic approach that tackles all elements of the psyche and physic of the children as comprehensive: because it starts with character building before tackling the other levels of more complex issues.
Sustainable Impact: The program helps our children develop new habits due to its consistency and long-term aspect. As we know, once a habit – good/bad – is built, it is difficult to break; that’s what we focus on. Over time, we are working equally to break down existing ‘bad’ habits and replace them with good, positive, strong habits.
