WHO WE ARE
We’re Saint Paul Coptic Service of Egypt. Our aim is to serve anyone in need.
Besides helping our community in Egypt, we started outreaching communities in need in Africa and Asia in 2008. Coming from a developing country, we know how to work with similar communities in Africa and Asia. We understand that each community has its own needs. And there is value in connecting communities with those facing similar issues, who developed relevant solutions.
We’ve set our hearts on providing such communities with empowerment and resilience. Partnering with governments, civil society, and local communities, we work towards achieving UN sustainable development goals. And we empower local communities to take ownership of the goals.
With a special focus on health and education, we now help 22 African and 13 Asian countries.
Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus. (Colossians 1:28)
We cooperate with governments and relevant organizations to enhance lives and provide communities with empowerment and resilience through working on sustainable development goals.
We work to realize SDGs no. 3, 4, and 5 (good health and well-being, quality education, gender equality, respectively) and empower local communities to take ownership of these goals.
We believe that volunteering reflects the diversity in society. Our volunteers come from diversified social and cultural backgrounds and different fields of study and, most importantly, span a wide age range, which helps build a solid service.
We especially focus on encouraging youth to join our service based on our solid belief that youth are a cornerstone in realizing the SDGs. An increasing number of young volunteers are joining since we started out.
More than 1500 volunteers went on several missions with St Paul Coptic Service till now.
With the help of our volunteers, we follow a roadmap to introduce our services.
The Message of the Founder
Lord, What do you want me to do?
Have you ever asked yourself this question? Have you ever wondered saying: what am I doing with my life? Why do I exist? What is my life all about? What legacy will I leave behind when my time is over?
We always need to pray to find the perfect will of God in our lives, this prayer can change many things, if you just pray for a moment asking God’s guidance before any matter, you will see things differently.
We need to exercise all the time on this prayer:
“Show me Your ways, O LORD; Teach me Your paths” (Psa 25: 4)
We are all called for a great mission in this life, we all need to discover something meaningful to live for. We are not here just to make a living; we are here to make A DIFFERENCE! Working for changing lives makes a lasting impact in the world because change is the miracle taking place every instant!
