CAIRO - 8 January 2022: Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouli asserted Wednesday the great importance of a meticulous and regular follow-up of the progress made in the projects pursued under the "Decent Life" Presidential initiative.

This should contribute to removing any obstacles and speeding up project completion to ensure a decent living for rural citizens, the prime minister said.

Madbouli was speaking during a meeting with Presidential Adviser for the rural development Initiative Gen. Mohamed Hegazy, head of the Armed Forces Engineering Authority Maj. Gen. Ehab El-Farr, and a host of the ministers and senior officials concerned, to follow up the implementation status of the initiative projects.

Chairperson of the Board of Trustees at the Decent Life Foundation Randa el Menshawy briefed the premier on the problems facing the projects and how to resolve them, including those related administrative division, healthcare, natural gas supply, electricity and sewage networks.

She said that studies had been carried out to identify needed supplies and furniture at government service centers, the supplies and equipment agricultural complexes under construction, as well as veterinary units, agricultural extension centers, and agricultural cooperative societies.

Reviewing the financial performance of some projects and the land plots allocated for the purposes of the initiative, whose first phase targets over 1,430 villages nationwide, Menshawy said that a total of 4,655 plots had been allocated so far.

“Haya Karima” is a national project to develop the Egyptian countryside. It started as an initiative launched by President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi on 2 January, 2019.

It was then transformed into a national project early in 2021 with the aim of improving the living conditions and the quality of life for the neediest categories of the rural society nationwide and contributing to advancing the level of daily services provided to citizens.

The “Haya Karima” project seeks to unify the efforts of all the state’s institutions in cooperation with the civil society, the private sector companies and the development partners inside and outside Egypt in the sustainable development field

The project also aims, through eliminating multi-dimensional poverty, to alleviate the burden shouldered by the citizens, especially the neediest families in the targeted villages and centers totaling 4,658 villages with total investments estimated at LE 700 billion.
