The Association for Women’s Total Advancement and Development (AWTAD) is an NGO dedicated to the professional and personal development of Egyptian women and youth as a means to empower them on both the social and economic level.

Through training sessions, workshops, mentoring programs, and knowledge-sharing events, we aim to create a trust-based network that facilitates the exchange of ideas and expertise. We believe this is essential to give women and youth the encouragement they need to implement their business ideas, as well as to foster a culture of entrepreneurship in Egyptian society, which AWTAD strongly supports and actively encourages.


We aim for Egyptian women and youth to reach their full potential, as we believe they are key agents for social, economic, and health development.

To, empower and engage the community, as well as to mobilize the role of women and youth as key development agents, by effectively managing Egypt’s human capital.

Our strategy involves enabling women specifically, and youth more generally, to collaborate in pursuing mutual goals. We work with different sectors and organizations to target common areas of interest, and coordinate on multiple levels with all our programs and partners
