Procter & Gamble-Egypt Leads the Call to Create An Egyptian Corporate Alliance For Development

During The 1st Forum of The Participatory Development Program Under the Auspices of Dr. Aly Moselhy/ Minister of Social Solidarity

Dr. Aly Moselhy- Minister of Social Solidarity inaugurated the First NGO Forum and exhibition organized by theCanadian International Development Agency (CIDA). Amid an unprecedented conglomeration from 120 Egyptian NGOs demonstrating their activities and products in addition to 10 top business private corporations reporting their experience with activating their corporate social responsibility (CSR) in Egypt, the event presented a panoramic overview of the social work in Egypt.

In a gesture highlighting the vital role played by the private sector in the development process through the implementation of different CSR programs Procter & Gamble-Egypt called for the necessity of the private sector participation in all the activities of the forum. Accordingly,The participatory Development Program immediately responded to the call made by Procter & Gamble-Egypt by expanding the scope of the call to include other Egyptian private companies to support the civil society associations and act as a pillar in the collaborative efforts aiming at the development of the Egyptian society via a unified body that can help in dividing the roles and responsibilities to maximize the community benefits.

According to a suggestion made by Procter & Gamble - Egypt, The Participatory Development Programorganized a special lecture about “Corporate Social Responsibility and the private sector’s role in the development process”. The private sector responded immediately, and Microsoft, Shell, Vodafone together with P&G-Egyptpresented their CSR experiences in the forum.

In his address to the forum, Mr. Khaled Hegazy, External Relations Manager of Procter & Gamble-Egyptlaunched an appeal made by the company to form a corporate alliance aimed at supporting ongoing developmental efforts in Egypt. In his speech, Mr. Khaled Hegazy stressed on the fact that time has come for private sector companies to work hand in hand towards achieving one goal uniting them, i.e. Egypt’s development.

Procter & Gamble identified in its primary vision of the targets and work program of the Alliance in the following points: raising the general awareness about the importance of private sector participation and conceiving it as a main partner with the Government and the Civil society, calling for a magnified partnership for development between the private & public sectors and spreading the sense of responsibility between Egyptian private sector companies.

Concerning the work agenda of the Alliance, Procter & Gamble – Egypt suggested that it could agree on one or more developmental causes, which will be supported on annual basis. P&G further stressed on the importance of activating scientific research in what relates to CSR in Egypt, granting a national award for the best corporate citizen, dedicating special areas in the national newspapers and on the internet to CSR activities, as well as issuing a periodical publication to highlight the different activities of the private sector in the field of development.

Commenting on this historic initiative, Mr. Mohammed Samir, General Manager of Procter &Gamble-Egyptsaid: “This initiative comes as the embodiment of a new phase marked by a deep understanding to our role in developing Egypt. We believe it is no longer possible for us to work on development and CSR separately. It has become a necessity to unify the efforts of the private sector, to work with the public sector and the civil society and the international organizations to achieve a real development long awaited by our society. At Procter & Gamble-Egypt, we do believe that this type of partnership doubles the benefits received by our community, and provides what won’t be achieved by the private sector alone or the civil society alone.”

Within this context, it is expected that next December shall witness the launching meeting for the Egyptian Corporate Alliance for Development in response to the call first made by Procter &Gamble-Egypt and with the attendance of representatives from the private sector, the civil society and the media.

Cisco - Egypt Education Initiative

With almost half of its fast-growing population under 20 years of age, Egypt faces a tremendous challenge in providing quality education and job opportunities to its citizens. In addition to limited economic resources and an underdeveloped infrastructure, the country also has had to overcome a lack of coordination among public- and private-sector educational institutions. Furthermore, the owners and managers of small companies, which make up 90 percent of Egypt’s business community, do not generally have access to business education and training through the education system.

 

A Model for Education Transformation

To improve education delivery through the use of IT and advanced technologies, and to assist the Egyptian government in achieving its vision of education as a driver for social and economic development, the Egypt Education Initiative (EEI) was launched by the government in partnership with the World Economic Forum in May 2006 as part of the Global Education Initiative. The EEI partnership now includes eight corporations, three international organizations, and approximately 30 local companies. Under the aegis of the Global Education Initiative, the EEI is moving beyond Egypt’s borders by serving as a model for educational reform in other developing countries.

The initiative focuses on four areas: pre-university education, higher education, lifelong learning, and developing the e-learning industry in Egypt. To date, EEI has completed about 70 percent of its infrastructure objectives, including delivering more than 39,000 PCs to schools, connecting 1120 schools to broadband, installing learning laboratories in 18 universities, and training more than 109,000 teachers and administrators in IT fundamentals.

 

How Cisco Is Making a Difference

Approximately 13,000 students have taken Cisco CCNA courses since the first Cisco Networking Academy in Egypt opened its doors to students in 2001. In 2007 the Egyptian Ministry of Higher Education & Scientific Research began integrating academy courses into all engineering and computer science colleges and technology institutes across the country. As of July 31, 2008, there were 409 active Networking Academy sites in Egypt with more than 10,000 students enrolled, a 306 percent year-over-year growth rate. Thirty-six percent of these students were women. In addition, 10 Engineering and Computer Sciences Universities have completed their CCNA Instructors’ Training.

Cisco has contributed Networking Academy curriculum and course materials for iExec Business Essentials, a leadership and management workshop that helps small and midsize enterprises (SMEs) become more competitive and innovative in their operations. The iExec Business Essentials course covers the fundamentals of IT and teaches students how to develop strategies for an effective IT business deployment. At the end of the class, each student creates an IT business case or proposal for use in the student’s business.

Working with Egypt’s E-Learning Competence Center and the Accenture Development Partnership, Cisco translated the Business Essentials training into Arabic and localized the program so the Egyptian audience would find it more relevant and compelling. Cisco enhanced the curriculum by increasing interactivity, incorporating local case studies, and piquing student interest by weaving a narrative through the curriculum. EEI’s goal is to enroll 3000 business owners in the course in 2008, and 10,000 before the end of 2009.

New Hope for a Small-Business Owner

After taking the Business Essentials course, Yehia El Zaeem, the owner of a small company that manufactures dry cleaning equipment, gained a new perspective on his business that caused him to cancel plans to leave Egypt. El Zaeem realized that by improving his management and IT skills, he could make his operations more efficient and profitable. “Seeing the numerous benefits that can be added to my business by applying the different business strategies that I learned from the course gave me great hope,” he says.

 

“The Egyptian Education Initiative is a tremendous opportunity to provide Egypt’s greatest asset, its people, with the skills necessary for the 21st century.”
—Suzanne Mubarak
    Office of the President of Egypt

 

“The Business Essentials curriculum we created has all of the components that need to be acquired by any startup company or SME.”
—Yasser Kazem
    Director of Egypt’s E-Learning Competence Center

BP Egypt

We’re proud to set universal standards of behaviour across our entire operation. By developing our own set of rigorous guidelines - often more rigorous than local laws and regulations - we ensure our continued involvement and contribution to policy debates, research support and the development of new, cleaner technologies in power and transport.

Community investment

Last year alone, BP put over $96 million into community investment programmes around the world. In Egypt specifically, we support and fund several educational initiatives. This includes scholarships to give top Egyptian students the opportunity to pursue post-graduate studies at the prestigious Cambridge University in the UK. We also fund scholarships through the Chevening Scheme. The BP Public Schools Scholarship Fund also enables high school students to take their undergraduate studies at the American University in Cairo. Download the following PDF for more information.

It doesn’t end there. In partnership with organizations such as the Fulbright Commission and the Future Generation Foundation, we help to provide training opportunities for young adults to develop essential skills. Similarly, we fund the Technical Skills Employability Programme, which aims to provide Egypt’s industries with a qualified and highly skilled workforce by offering the relevant training to students in technical high schools.

Health is another area we’re actively involved in. We continue to work closely with the American University in Cairo to fund a water quality improvement project and we continue to support the Special Olympics and the Association of Friends of National Cancer Institute.
