After the earthquake of 1992 in Egypt, many schools were destroyed especially in undeveloped areas of the country. Bavaria has taken the initiative to build a school in one of Egypt’s most needy areas in “Kafr Ammar” village and named it Dr. Nader Riad School.
Bavaria has allocated an annual budget to sponsor the school financially. Examples of areas of development include:
The school was awarded the second place in “Education Excellence” in a competition that covers all schools in Giza governorate due to its outstanding academic performance.
The school played a vital role in Empowering Women in the community since they were dropping out of school at higher rates than boys before it was built. Bavaria supported families sending their girls to study through a monthly financial incentive to keep them out of the workforce and continue their studies. The result was increasing the number of girls who continued to study after the age of 14 by 75%.
