LEAD opens its third youth center in Hay el Ashr

We are expanding our programs to meet the needs of an additional 80 young men in the area of Hay el Ashr (Nasr City). The young men were so excited about the opening of the new center after having visited the existing LEAD center in Ain Shams that they insisted that project staff "stay away" for 24 hours while they rearranged and stored furniture, cleaned, and converted the two-bedroom apartment into a three classroom center.

Classes begin in Hay el Ashr 17 February. Pictures to come soon!
