Dr Sahar Aly manages the Egyptian-German Center for Jobs, Migration and Reintegration (EGC) in Cairo. Here she tells us about the work done by her and her seven-strong team.
Dr Aly, what support does the EGC provide to people seeking advice?
We focus on three areas. The first is providing individual and group advice to people on site. This includes a guidance workshop and training for all those who are job hunting or would like to start their own business. The second area is counselling and preparing people who are interested in regular channels of migration to Germany. Our third aspect is enabling the social and vocational reintegration of returnees. My team is currently creating a database containing all the relevant information people will need after arriving back in Egypt.
