Can only people of a certain age or gender take advantage of the Centre's offers?

There are no age or gender restrictions. We are especially happy if we can support young people. We accompany you on your way: when you are looking for a job or when you make a new start after returning home.

Unfortunately, the centre's services are only available to Egyptians.

How can the Centre help me with my new start in Egypt?

You can contact us even before you return. We support you in preparing for your return to Egypt. To do this, we work closely with reintegration scouts. These colleagues work in Germany.

Together we will give you information and tips for a successful reintegration. This way you can make the best decisions for your situation. You are in control of your future path. Thorough preparation also increases your chances of a successful and smooth return to Egypt.
