Egypt is ranked 136th out of 145 countries in gender equality in the world after Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), according to the Global Gender Gap report 2015. The Global Gender Gap report, which marks its tenth year in 2015, was first introduced by the World Economic Forum in 2006 as a framework for capturing the magnitude of gender-based disparities and tracking their progress among the thresholds of political and economic empowerment, education, and health. This year marks a decline in the status of women, as Egypt ranked 129th out of 142 countries according to the Global Gender Gap index in 2014, and 125th out of 136 countries in 2013. Egypt ranks the worst in political empowerment of women (136). There has been no progress in regards to political empowerment since 2006. On the three remaining thresholds, Egypt ranks 125 on economic participation and opportunity, 115 on education attainment, and 97 on health and survival.
The Art of Egyptian Film Posters collects together old Egyptian film posters from the 1930s to the 1990s, when they were painted by hand, and did not depend on graphic design. After a first volume of 190 film posters published in September 2014, a second volume now shows an extra 200 posters, without chronological order, accompanied by enlightening articles such as “Posters and censorship”, or even “The Greek period and its influence on the art of posters in Egypt”. Though still young, Fathy unveils the long-forgotten artists behind these works of art.
Helm is a nonprofit organization that aims at employing and training people with disability (PWD), seeks to include them in the community, provides an "enabling environment" and secures their right in the society. It is a brilliant idea of the inclusive community we dream for and dying to live in Egypt. The organization was founded by Amena el Saie and Ramez Maher and a group of a very talented Egyptian youth who visualized a better tomorrow for every single citizen. “It's not about disability; it's about ability”, the ability to live. Helm is 1st prize winner in Negma Egypt, MIT University in USA for 2013 that aims at bringing innovators together so they can strengthen their projects through networking and other resources. The Organization also won the 1st class in Rise Egypt that is committed to support social enterprises in Egypt by harnessing the talents of our global network as well as a 2-year scholarship at Harvard in 2014. In Helm there are several activities through which PWD could be trained and developed so that they could be employed in different companies and through which every talent, every skill and every ability could be utilized. The organization also provides community days where companies employees are invited to spend an inclusive day with PWD. It offers workshops in different disciplines to PWD as well as volunteers so as to enhance their skills and abilities. Entaleq is the first accessibility certification project in Egypt and the Middle East and it is one of Helm NGO's initiatives. Entaleq requires that public and government facilities, cities and towns, educational institutions, employers, and service providers make reasonable accommodations based on international standards. The project is necessary to serve persons with disabilities who represent around 18 million of the Egyptian society. Entaleq Assessment team provides Consulting Services to the private and public sector in order to make their places accessible. The project enables persons with different disabilities and their acquaintances through the use of technology tools (Mobile Apps and Website) whereas they will be able to browse and locate accessible locations assessed based on Entaleq's criteria. Eventually, since joining Helm as a member, one finds purpose in life. The sense of family and unity appears in all details. One gets unified with others through good times and hardships. Goals and dreams shall be achieved sooner better than later in Helm, that’s how they work.
