Dear Stanford friends,

As you may know, a dedicated team (including two Stanford alumns Mai
El-Sadany and Tamer Deif) are attempting to address the broken state of the
Egyptian education system. *We are starting a non-profit organization
called Teach for Egypt (TFE)*. TFE is inspired by the vision that all
children in Egypt should receive a quality education regardless of
socio-economic, gender, and geographic barriers.

Essentially, TFE will recruit the brightest Egyptian university students
and working professionals, and will train them with the most creative and
effective methods of teaching.  After they are trained, these Fellows will
commit to a two-year service to bring about change in the most
underprivileged primary and secondary schools.

We have been selected as one of the top ten finalists for  competition
called NEGMA <http://www.egyptnegma.org/> at MIT which seeks to identify
the most innovative ideas for solving Egypt's most significant
challenges. There
we will get the chance to present our project, get extremely useful
feedback, and compete with other innovative ideas and groups for resources
and financial support. As part of the conference, there is an online
audience competition between all of the groups for project with the most
potential impact in any sector! *Please check out our team description
here <http://www.egyptnegma.org/finalists>and
vote for Teach for Egypt! You can do so by first creating an account
here <http://egyptnegma.org/user/register>and
submitting your vote here <http://egyptnegma.org/vote>.*

Please let us know if you have any questions or would like to be kept
updated with any of our group's developments! And please share with your
friends!

Take Care,
Nada
