Volunteering Oportunities

Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Children & Youth, Youth Development Programs

Mission: A comprehensive and significant reform by preparing open-minded and effective generations of young people who believe in principle values (through a faith-based development narrative)

Results: 1. Improving lives (Insaan) – supporting a poor family whose children have dropped out of school. The family is supported in setting up a micro-grant business with the help of a team of trained volunteers who also support the family socially, economically, educationally, and health-wise. After six months of close guidance, the family becomes a productive social unit of its community. 2. Future Guardians – project aiming to protect the community from the dangers of smoking, drugs and addiction through increasing health awareness throughout targeted sectors of the society, specifically the youth and students. The project carried out various activities and campaigns over a time span of six years. The project was carried out in partnership with Mentor - UN Office for Fighting Drugs and Crime, Dubai Police as well as several local companies. 3. Our Health – aims to increase healthcare awareness in the society about contagious and non-contagious diseases such as: Hepatitis, Bird Flu. The project is being carried out in partnership with WHO and the Egyptian Ministry of Health. 4. Eradicating Illiteracy project (Al-Alm Quwa)- In partnership with Vodafone we educated over 120,000 illiterate adults over a 12month period across 9 governorates of Egypt. We used over 15000 trained volunteers and created our own curriculum. 5. The Village Project – the project aims to merge aid and development activities with healthcare and anti-drug and anti-smoking awareness campaigns. The project achieves its goal by organizing camps for Life Makers in village areas or shanty towns, which is aimed to encourage the local residents to develop their communities by encouraging them to volunteer. This activity acts as a first step towards long-term development schemes of poor areas in Egypt.

Target demographics: poor familes , illterate , youth, health

Direct beneficiaries per year: Educating over 80,000 illterate

Geographic areas served: Egypt Country

صناع يعنى ناس اتجمعو فى مكان عشان هدف واحد هو تنميه المجتمع تعبو نفسهم اوى عشان يشوفو بلدهم احسن من غير اى مصلحه بس مستنيين ثوابهم من عند ربنا
بسلوكنا و باسلوبنا وبديننا نغير ، انا التحقت بصناع من 4سنين تقريبا و برغم عدم كونى عضو فعال بس غيرت فيا كتييييير اوى احساسك انك بتساعد ناس عشان تتغير حياتهم للاحسن اذا كان من خلال مشروع انسان بنكفل مشروع لاسره فقيره شرط اعده الاطفال المتسربين الى التعليم او مشروع محو الاميه ومشروع حماه المستقبل واللى هدفه التوعيه من اخطار الادمان خاصه فى سن الالمدارس و الجامعات وغيرها من المشروعات البناءه .
فرحتك وانت بتساعد الناس تساوى الدنيا كلها

صناع الحياه دي علمتني كتيرر قوي ولو صناع دي شئ ملموس يعني شخص بتعامل معاه فهكون مديلة بكتيرررر
** علمتني مثلاً عن طريق (( مشروع انسان )) اني مش عايش لوحدي في الدنيا وان ممكن يكون في ناس بائسة كتير جنب بيتي وانا معرفهمش
** علمتني مثلاُ عن طريق (( مشروع حماه المستقبل )) اني مش معني اني مش بشرب سجاير او مدمن اعيش منعزل عن باقي المدمنين واقول مليش دعوة بالعكس انا مطالب انهم يكون زي واحسن مني علشان مفيش حد معصوم من الغلط فلو غلط الاقي حد نصحتي ينصحني
** علمتني مثلاُ عن طريق (( العلم قوة )) اني مش معني اني متعلم ولقيت ظروف متاحة ليا في التعليم اني اجهل بالناس الي مش متعلمة وانهم ليهم حق عندي وهو اني زي ما اتعلمت لازم اعلمهم ومنظرش شكر او تقدير لان ثوابها اكبر من كده بكتيررررررررررررررر .
************* من الأخر انا اتعلمت من صناع ازاي اعمل نهضة لنفسي ولو حصل هعمل نهضة لبلدي ********************
هي دي صناع عطاء & خبرة & وثقة بالنفس & شخصية مكتسبة & ثواب من الله عز وجل & نضج فكري ( هي دي صناع الحياه ))

As a volunteer in the Life Makers Foundation, I can say that my life has changed a lot since I started volunteering there, I’m trying to help by some of the experiences that I have accumulated over the years of my career to the volunteers, as well as I'm an old participant in the campaigns and projects launched by the institution.

My story with life-makers began five years ago ..In short, I can say that life makers is not just a civil society institution .. But a school to teach the basics and volunteer work ethics .. It also is great to find who shares ur Interests in helping the poor and the implementation of charitable projects and distribution of clothes and hot meals to the poor people .. It also is wonderful to be involved in your country's literacy and participate in the health and social awareness to those in need ..

With the makers of life .. Together we make life :)

My Story in Life Makers Egypt

I am a volunteer in Life Makers Egypt since 9 years ago
My name is: Karima Mohamed

Each year hundreds of volunteers across Egypt donate their time for life makers associations, talents and energy to make life makers projects & programs happen all over Egypt.

They are young and old, men and women, studying and teaching, working and retired.
When you become a life maker volunteer you will:
• Be connected to a great network of volunteers, families and communities
• Develop leadership and communication skills
• Gain or improve your managerial skills
• Help enrich your local community


In life Makers Egypt we have lots of opportunities for volunteers, it is very important to state why you would want to be a volunteer and also what qualifications that you have that can assist us during any of our activities.

Life Makers was the idea of Amr Khaled who announced that Arab Muslims want to live peacefully in coexistence with the West. His main teachings remain the same as those before him in more modern media, talking about everyday actions to get closer to Allah such as honesty, humbleness, and being polite.
He believes that for society to improve it must change from the grassroots (from the bottom up)
. Khaled promotes community development in the Arabic and Muslim nation based on what he terms "Faith Based Development" (Arabic: التنمية بالإيمان).

The idea is for people to develop their communities and countries with faith as their motivator and guide.
