PROFESSIONAL COMMUNITIES

Professional Communities (PCs) are vibrant networks of Egyptian professionals who meet regularly both in-person and online. PCs consist of both on-line and in-person information, activities, and events. Each PC includes high-quality tools, resources, and opportunities from a variety of local and international partner organizations. Basic PC membership is free to members, with additional services offered by Community Leaders (CLs) and their partners for a fee. ALROWAD supports CLs in all aspects of launching and leading PCs, and in turning the PCs they lead into profitable and sustainable services; hence, supporting Egyptian businesses to improve and expand. Each PC is owned and operated by the Egyptian CL who creates and leads it as a business opportunity. CLs leverage PCs to demonstrate their expertise and thought leadership to a wide number of Egyptian professionals, and Small and Medium companies, and support these groups (PC members) to grow their businesses. In doing so, CLs also grow their reputations and their companies.

Read the Story

After attending an ALROWAD CLC event, BLI Consulting requested an introduction to The-Marketer.net CEO and Founder, Noha Fathi, who also acts as the CL for the Marketing community. BLI Consulting now intends to propose a consulting project to Ms. Fathi in her area of expertise, and is actively pursuing other business opportunities together. Consulting for BLI would provide Ms. Fathi with considerably increased experience given the relatively larger value, scope, and weight of references that working with such a large company would offer.

  • The United States has a long history of extending a helping hand to people overseas struggling to make a better life. It is a history that both advances U.S. foreign policy interests as well as reflects the American people's compassion and support of human dignity.

     
    Following the success of the reconstruction of Europe after World War II through the Marshall Plan and the Truman Administration's Point Four Program -- the 1950 program to engage in technically-based international economic development -- President John F. Kennedy signed the Foreign Assistance Act into law in 1961 and USAID was created by executive order. Since that time, USAID has been the principal U.S. agency to extend assistance to countries recovering from disaster, trying to escape poverty, and engaging in democratic reforms.
     
    U.S. foreign assistance has always had the twofold purpose of furthering America's interests while improving lives in the developing world. The Agency carries out U.S. foreign policy by promoting broad-scale human progress at the same time it expands stable, free societies, creates markets and trade partners for the United States, and fosters good will abroad.
     
    Spending less than one-half of 1 percent of the federal budget, USAID works in over 100 countries to: promote broadly shared economic prosperity; strengthen democracy and good governance; improve global health, food security, environmental sustainability and education; help societies prevent and recover from conflicts; and provide humanitarian assistance in the wake of natural and man-made disasters.
