USAID/Egypt Mission Director Sherry F. Carlin and the mission's technical team leaders speak with AmChamEgypt about USAID's strategic partnership with Egypt.

Many of you know that USAID has a 40-year legacy of inspiring Egyptian success, but as the USAID Mission Director, it never fails to astonish me when I hear comments like, “I didn’t know USAID was still in Egypt.”  And, truth be told, I hear comments like that even here, at AmCham events.  So my goal is for you to leave here this morning with a better understanding of what we’re doing right now and what we have planned -- and to appreciate the impact we’re making, and the strength of USAID and Egypt’s strategic partnership.

You’ll hear me speak about COMMITMENT and CAPACITY.  At USAID, world-wide, we’re looking to support a country’s journey to self-reliance by leveraging its policy-level COMMITMENT to effective, inclusive, and accountable solutions to educating their people, building a skilled and healthy workforce, ensuring economic stability, and other development challenges.

There are an estimated 200,000 refugees and asylum seekers in Egypt, more than half of whom are from Syria and 40 percent of whom are children. The overall objective of this activity is to ensure that vulnerable refugee children and youth, as well as their peers in the host community in Egypt, have access to quality formal and non-formal education services in safe learning environments. The program aims to strengthen community-based approaches to education to ensure greater enrollment of Syrian children.

In 2011, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Technical Education, USAID supported the establishment of a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) high school for boys (grades 10-12) in Giza, followed by the Maadi STEM high school for girls in 2012. Building on the success of these schools, USAID helped establish 12 additional STEM schools in Alexandria, Assiut, Dakahlia, Gharbia, Ismailia, Kafr El Sheikh, Luxor, Menoufia, Qalyoubia, Qena, Red Sea, and Sharqia governorates.

This government-to-government activity focuses on early grade learning in support of the implementation of the Egyptian Ministry of Education’s reform agenda. It builds on previous USAID programming to ensure that Egyptian students are able to learn the fundamental core skills of reading, comprehension, writing, mathematics, and English language by grade 3, at the end of their early primary school experience. This activity also provides remedial learning for students in grades 4-9 who have difficulties reading at their grade level.

Literate Village is a four-year activity that focuses on 2,150 economically disadvantaged villages in the Sohag, Beheira, and Assiut governorates with high rates of illiteracy among mothers and low school attendance rates among children. Using an intergenerational approach to learning to eradicate illiteracy, this activity strengthens literacy among children in community schools and improves early grade reading instruction, particularly for remedial readers.
