Waqfeyet al-Maadi al-Ahleya
This description of Marwa El-Daly's work was prepared when Marwa El-Daly was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2008.
Marwa El-Daly is generating sustainable resources for development by reviving and modernizing the traditional model of giving and local resource mobilization known as waqf. Marwa’s community-led trust, Waqfeya, shifts the giving paradigm from charity to development and from external to internal sources.
