Who we are
The International Egyptian Women’s Club is a club that was put together by New Egypt Group, which is a non-profit, is a non-religious, non-political, educational, cultural and humanitarian chapter. Our members are a diversified group of professionals in the world of medicine, business and media who live and work in the United States. A woman’s world today is one of the most intriguing and most challenging. For decades, women have worn many hats to support and care for their families while progressing in their own careers. They have bravely managed to be professionals, wives, healers and mothers, at times fathers, all at the same time, to create safe and nurturing environments for their families. While many have succeeded, many others haven’t and aren’t. Great barriers continue to block many women from progressing in their lives, such as poor health, lack of education, financial challenges and absence of stable careers. Born in 2018, our globally growing mission is to eradicate these barriers. Together, women all over the world, who are part of the International Egyptian Women’s club are joining forces to make that dream come true.
Founders, Abed Elkeshk and Maged Amin, established the foundation of the women’s club, an idea adopted by Abed Elkesh, who both later took tangible and orderly steps to create the International Egyptian Women’s Club, created by New Egypt Group, a 501c3 in 2017. An executive board of professional women spearheaded by Dr Mona Tantawi and New Egypt Group, came to life. The story began with immediate action, elected their first President, Aida El-Manzalawi, Executive Board Member, Alia Amin, Executive Board Treasurer, Naiera Hamad and Executive Board Member Secretary, Christine Raphael. IEWC adopted its first project and attracted a dozen members in its first week, after announcing opening its membership doors. The story is bound to keep evolving for many years to come, from that point onwards.
The International Egyptian Women’s Club aspires to empower and elevate disadvantaged Egyptian Women and children, through support in the realms of education, financial independence, human development and health.
We seek to implement our mission under the famous Proverb: “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime” We believe in sustainability and do not believe that short term solutions are the answers to any of the challenges facing Egyptian women and children today.
Our success depends on many ingredients. While there is power in numbers, it’s mostly important to focus on quality.
