Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2012
This description of Mohammed El Raffei's work was prepared when Mohammed El Raffei was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2012.
Mohammed El Raffei is unlocking the potential of Egypt’s youth by shifting their role from passive recipients of an instructor-led education to learning through hands on experiments. More than the subject matter, students walk away with a new proficiency in the critical “soft skills” neglected in Egypt’s educational institutions, but which define the modern economy.
