EZBET Profession Pillar
Profession Sustainable Development Pillar
Skilled craftsmen are currently facing a variety of challenges in Egypt generally and in informal settlements specifically. As a result, youth often stop pursuing crafts and seek out simpler jobs that require little or no skills. This leads to the gradual disappearance of many important and rare skills, which in turn threatens the sustainability of part of the economic system of the community. EZBET’s main aim is serving the community, and profession is a vital element in this mission. The project's main goals in profession development are based on the analysis of the most important issues facing professions in Egypt.
