Mission, Vision and Values


NEDA is an Egyptian Non-Profit Association, registered with the Ministry of Social Solidarity (No. 6552/2006). NEDA was established by a group of intellectuals and businessmen/ women with the purpose of qualifying youth to comply with the demanding requirements of the job market.

The experience of NEDA and its partners has shown that Egypt is suffering from a severe labor gap rather than just unemployment challenge. This is reflected in the absence of the adequate experiences with the qualifications needed to support national entities in facing the challenges of globalization and competitive business environment. NEDA believes that all stakeholders of the Egyptian society, including the government, international organizations, private businesses and civil society organizations, have an important role in addressing this gap through developing youth skills, work ethics and attitudes. Hence, NEDA recognized the importance of its mission in contributing to the development of our Country through addressing one of its major socio-economic issues, the unemployment.
