Egyptian Association for Comprehensive Development (EACD)
Throughout its activities, EACD aims to enhance the skills and capabilities of members of society throughout Egypt, and especially those in the underprivileged neighborhoods and in unplanned and rural areas. We believe that the emerging competence of individuals and society with regard to their abilities is the principle foundation for lasting development. This is affected through the mutual collaboration of NGOs, governmental bodies, the Private Sector and innumerable local resources in deprived areas. EACD focuses on women, children and youth, using a comprehensive synergy of development programs that address Health, Education, Economic development (micro-credit finance and income generating projects) and Environment. We partner as often as possible with local organizations (CDAs or CBOs), which exist in many places but typically play a marginal role because of their lack of experience and expertise. EACD works to empower those associations, within the structure of its programs, in order to reach greater numbers of needy persons throughout Egypt and more profoundly impact Egyptian society.
