Impact of the Valuable Girl Project Amid COVID Crisis

By Joseph Flynn | Communications Associate

The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted the nation of Egypt, with thousands infected and millions under a lockdown order. This has forced us to postpone the 2020-2022 cycle of Valuable Girl Projects, which was slated to start in June. There remains great enthusiasm for Valuable Girl Projects in Egypt, however, as 96 Community Development Associations in four Egyptian governorates have applied to partner with the Valuable Girl Project in this new cycle.

It is easy to see why so many community improvement organizations would want to partner with the Valuable Girl Project. To date, 13,000 Christian and Muslim girls and young women have participated in the program at 16 different project sites across Egypt. The girls have organized and implemented massive improvement projects in their local communities.

More importantly, during this moment of extreme fear and uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, the Big and Little Sisters of the Valuable Girl Project represent a culture of unity and understanding. Christian and Muslim are joining together to solve the problems of their communities, and in doing so they are inspiring entire generations of Egyptians to work for a brighter future.
