Birla Carbon Egypt promotes sustainability livelihoods with various local initiatives

Alexandria, Egypt – We equipped four centers with tools and materials to train 32 women in tailoring, with the aim of developing at least 20 more trainers in other villages. We have also financed 108 micro-projects in various trades (including poultry farming, fishing, tailoring and sewing, vegetable supply and the fodder trade), enhancing the living conditions of around 600 people in four villages. We developed a literacy program in Egypt to address adult education and illiteracy eradication. Local teachers have been employed and have delivered specialized training and coaching for 150 people in local villages. During the COVID-19 outbreak, BCE continues funding 60 micro-projects for needy families in the surrounding area to help them generate income by working from home.
