In January and February 2011, the people of Egypt gathered together in Tahrir Square in a flood of protest and determination for change. Meaning “squares of liberation” in Arabic, Mayadin al-Tahrir seeks to create spaces in Egypt where “Tahrir-momentum” can be revived.

Focused on enhancing the rights and possibilities of marginalized groups of society, Mayadin al-Tahrir fosters educational, cultural, and development projects, community-building activities, as well as free and transparent dialogue.

Drawing on the people’s initiative and creativity, Mayadin al-Tahrir invests in the Egyptian population’s education through its projects. Its most comprehensive project to date, the Matariya Project involves the creation of spaces for education and creative development for women and children in one of Cairo’s poorest neighborhoods. A library has been opened, and an abandoned roof is being ecologically reconstructed to provide classrooms and a garden.

In Berlin, Mayadin Al-Tahrir, hosts lectures, events and exhibitions highlighting Egyptian politics, and culture. With the goal of creating awareness and increasing tolerance, these events are an attempt to enhance the visibility of, attention to, and knowledge about the present situation in Egypt.
