Many Bedouin have been very quickly confronted with modern life and have not had the time to adapt or the means to preserve their way of life. Their inexperience has not allowed them to see the changes that came their way or be aware of the dangers of modernisation. For these reasons, many Bedouin have very little to rely on with very few having any education permitting them to have well paid employment, and have lived a very traditional lifestyle for thousands of years with practically no developments until the arrival of mass tourism developments in the last 25 years.
We are a Bedouin organisation and employ Bedouin exclusively, however, many remain unemployed and with little resources. Amongst some of our projects will be to revive Bedouin handicrafts and hand made products such as carpets, goat skin water containers, shep wool clothes and covers etc…, collect warm clothes for children and elderly people living in the cold areas of the desert, collecting donations to purchase clothes, provide financial and volunteer assistance to help in farming projects, supplying villages with basic foods such as rice, flour, oil, sugar etc…
Any little contribution helps. With as little as 20 egyptian pounds ($3 or 2.5 euros), we can buy a second hand warm jacket for a child. Your contributions go entirely towards the actual projects, materials, food, clothes…all of us here also work as volunteers and do not charge for any services or transport. If you would like to help us with our charity work,
please e-mail us.
