Mission Statement

Vision and Mission

We envision a society where positive values are shared and wherein all people live in justice and dignity. A world characterised by equality and tolerance with regards to race, sex, religion and social status. A place where we care for the vulnerable people in our communities.

We strive for social change by respecting the principles of human rights. We build awareness, provide expertise and support vulnerable people and fragile communities. We empower them and create opportunities, so that they may realise their potential and participate in social, economic and cultural life. We work with local, national and international partners – civil society organisations, the business community and governments alike – to foster sustainable development.

Caritas Egypt is a non-governmental Egyptian organization registered at the Ministry of Social Affairs in 1967 under No. 1150. It has been recognized as a public utility organization in 1975.


How we work

Four key principles guide our work:

At Caritas Egypt it all begins with people. We believe that every person is a worthy asset for society.
We support the right of people to make their own choices by creating conditions that help them do so. We empower them to influence issues that affect themselves and their communities.
We are inclusive and recognize that some people may need additional support to overcome the barriers they face.
We believe in partnerships. By sharing our expertise and resources with our partners and beneficiaries, our limited resources are better used and the public better served.
