As one of the most populous countries in the Middle East, and due to its geographic and political centrality, Egypt was selected as a strategic location for a new full-time Ashoka regional office. Ashoka opened its Cairo office in March 2003 and its hub for operations in North Africa and the Middle East. Ashoka Egypt is actively engaging North African and Middle Eastern leading social entrepreneurs in all major fields of social concern — education, health, women's empowerment, human rights, peace and conflict resolution, democracy, environment, economic development, agriculture, water, disability, early child development and children's rights.
