CAIRO – 2 November 2023: The Sovereign Fund of Egypt (TSFE) and the private sector partnered up to establish the Cosmic Village’s school complex whose mission is delivering world-class education that is affordable to middle-income Egyptian families.


The project was inaugurated Thursday by Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouli, as four out of five schools within the first phase have begun operation in the current academic year.

Those include catering to the needs of a wide segment of society, which is the middle class, and also achieving the national goal of raising the quality of the education system to meet international standards.
