Where are they?: 

Based in Cairo working in villages in rural Egypt

What do they do?: 

Aim to fight poverty and disease and to give disadvantaged people the opportunity to live in dignity, particularly through literacy classes and small business loans.

Who benefits?: 

Rural village communities, especially women and girls.

Activities: 

Think & Do provide literacy classes, run by local women, for women and girls in their communities who have missed out on their education. Classes and seminars are available on a wide variety of subjects, including childhood nutrition, prevention and treatment of common diseases, family planning, female genital mutilation (FGM), food hygiene and other practical topics relevant to everyday life.

They also provide loans and training for women to set up their own businesses. These are simple but far-reaching ways for women to gain confidence and knowledge that is ultimately beneficial to the whole community.
