Mre than 7,000 young people benefited from these courses since the beginning of the year until October.

Abbas added that integrated training programs will be implemented during which participants will be familiarized with the foundations of establishing small enterprises and how to prepare feasibility studies and work plans, which will ensure the success and continuity of their businesses, in addition to developing the capabilities and skills of professionals that provide these training courses, and implementing programs to link and integrate innovation-based projects in supply chains, as well as programs to develop the skills of entrepreneurs and help them market their products locally and globally.
Mohamed Abdel Rahman, Deputy Managing Director of the Misr El Kheir, said that this cooperation is an expression of the consistency of the vision of the Misr El Kheir Foundation and MSMEDA regarding the aspect of investing in people and supporting the competitiveness of the Egyptian economy, depending on the provision of an appropriate environment to provide support for enterprises, especially financial services.
For his part, Saber Hassan, Head of the Education Sector at Misr El Kheir Foundation, said that the MoU supports the construction of business incubators in the governorates of Egypt and lays a foundation that ensures the sustainability of its services for various projects, pointing out that the Misr El Kheir Foundation is working to train and qualify cadres in partner NGOs and provide them with support on an ongoing basis, to implement programmes in a flexible and rapid manner.
