CAIRO – 8 November 2017: Social Solidarity Minister Ghada Waly affirmed that civil society organizations (NGOs) participated as main partners in implementing the state’s strategy of 2030.

Waly gave a speech in the “Role of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in Achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)” session during the fourth day of the World Youth Forum (WYF) in Sharm El-Sheikh, Wednesday.

During her speech she affirmed that these NGOs were partners to governmental entities, private sector and other associations.

“About LE 10 billion are spent annually by NGOs on their goals that include education, health, economy, eliminating poverty, environment and climate change,” Waly said.
In her speech, Waly explained that all of the listed associations affiliated with the ministry are working on 17 points as part of the state’s 2030 strategy to achieve sustainable development.

Most of the NGOs work mainly in Cairo, Alexandria and Giza governorates; however other associations in the countryside cities have an affective role within their regions as well.

The WYF, which launched on Sunday, is a forum designed to give youth from all over the world the chance to engage in the development of the world. It is a chance to allow them to be heard as well by world leaders and influential individuals. Egypt’s first international youth event is set to run until November 10, bringing together 3,000 youth represented by 60 delegations from around the world.
