Sawiris Foundation

Overview

The Sawiris Foundation was founded in April 2001 as a grant-making foundation. Set up with an endowment from the Sawiris family, it is one of the first family donor foundations dedicated to social development to be established in Egypt. The Sawiris Foundation was founded on the belief that development is only sustainable when its beneficiaries are equal partners in the process. They aspire to be a recognized pioneer in the provision of innovative and sustainable development initiatives, promoting increased empowerment of, and participation by, the people of Egypt. Their mission is to contribute to Egypt’s development, create sustainable job opportunities, and empower citizens to build productive lives that realize their full potential.

SFSD has a large and growing Education and Scholarships department and a strong track record in impacting education in Egypt. The education portfolio spans 15 active scholarship programs across the world, a community schools program focused on provision of high-quality education in Upper Egypt, two vocational schools that SFSD set up and oversees in the fields of hospitality and nursing, in addition to other substantial educational programs with reputable partners.
