Feeling lost and don't know what all of this is about?

Have you ever been in two places at a time?

Have you ever experienced different culture and ambiance without having to travel?

Did you know that Egypt is rich with various local cultures full of different costumes, music, dances, food, and lifestyles? That there are treasures of local handicrafts made by women with no marketing plans? That Egypt comprises more than 50% of its population as youth, with higher proportion in Upper Egypt than in big cities?

Al-Tatwiqa initiative started by five youth development practitioners who came from different governorate. These youth, together with larger team members from other governorates in Suez Canal area, South of Egypt, Northern coast, and borders’ area, traveled to many places in Egypt in their work in development. They came across extremely different cultures, traditions, mind-sets and life experiences. The variety and richness in these different cultures urged the necessity to showcase the uniqueness of each governorate, tribe, music and even food. In doing so, women from local communities will be economically empowered to market and sell their good-quality products, youth from each governorate will organize different events and activities to promote for their unique culture that form a big part of their identity and personalities. In addition, cultural exchange will be assured between these governorates and youth from Cairo who are well-educated, yet, ignorant about the treasures and heritage of their own country.

Al Tatwiqa Initiative is a part of my fellowship to US, by Legacy International. It started organizing series of social and cultural festivals to showcase unique local cultures, starting with Red Sea governorate that was held at Darb1718 (http://www.darb1718.com/) venue and was attended by more than 500 youth visitors and was covered by media and documented by a video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8nb1gJCtyyM


the event included many different examples of living habits and traditions like drinking Gabana "Local coffee", Selat "Local food", local costumes for photo session, show of al semsemeya music and dancers of Al Tarbala in addition to photos and paintings exhibition by Italians who used to live there a century ago. it was also an open space for women from south to sell their handicrafts from Halayeb and Shalateen.
