    El Sadat Association for Development and Social Welfare reached an agreement with the Polish Embassy in Egypt to get a grant to buy 500 bicycles.

    The project objectives:

    This project is of great importance and long-term impact, not only on the towns of Tala and Elshohada in Menoufia governorate, but also on the entire Delta region where the project is planned to extend over the coming years.

    \"Bicycles for Education\" is a project by ESA with the main objectives:

    1) to support the education process by encouraging the most marginalized and poor students in Menoufia governorate to continue their education,

    2) reducing the dropout rate in the Delta governorates,

    3) shedding light on one of the deepest problems that affect the dropout rate in Egypt.

    4) to raise awareness about the use of bicycles as a safe means of transport and encourage students to continue their education.

    This project is planned to extend over the coming years, and the first phase will be setting the conditions and criteria that must be met by the students to get the bicycles.

    This criteria includes:

    • A long distance between home and school
    • The number of siblings who may will benefit from the bicycle
    • The educational performance of students
    • Degree of household poverty
