ARCE does a tremendous job in protecting monuments, training young scholars, both American and Egyptian and in promoting goodwill between the US and the international community. I don't think any other NGO in Egypt works as hard or does as much as ARCE. The organization has a long and proud tradition of working in Egypt and has led the way in promoting professional training, conservation and public awareness of Egypt's unique cultural heritage from prehistory to the present day. Everyone can be prod of the exemplary work they have done and should support its continued growth and success well into the future.
