Youth and Development Consultancy Institute (Etijah) specializes in developing, improving, and disseminating development methodologies in the field of youth and community development. Etijah’s primary concern is to create and tailor up-to-date, high-quality development methodologies, research tools, applicable practices of youth development and training delivery models, to be able to empower youth by providing them with the skills, know-how and aptitudes, as well as contribute in building the capacity of governmental and non-governmental youth-serving organizations. Our role is to provide youth with direct access to unconditional participation by providing them with practical tools and models for developing community-wide initiatives.
Etijah aims to build capacities of governmental and non-governmental youth serving organizations so that it could provide a professional and a safe context for youth development in Egypt. This stems from Etijah’s belief that providing other NGOs with different sorts of assistance will lead to strengthening the bond between those organizations and youth. It will also lead to the transformation of youth from being beneficiaries to being active citizens. This will directly reflect on the efficiency of the partner NGOs.
Etijah seeks to promote and facilitate the establishment of an equitable society in which all members (individuals, families, and communities) have an opportunity to participate in building the social, political, and economic infrastructure of Egypt. All of Etijah’s projects are geared towards creating a thriving environment in which all members of the community are granted an opportunity to progress and to improve the quality of their lives, and accordingly, that of their families and subsequent society.
