There are volunteer work opportunities in Egypt however not on the scale of pre-revolution years. Nevertheless you can get involved in a number of volunteer work projects, but seek safety advice from your foreign office first as the safety of foreigners is not what it was. If you run or
know of a volunteer work project in Egypt let us know
by contacting us here. We look forward
to hearing from you!
