Education Square is a space for all who believe that education is holistic for mind, soul and body and for all who believe that children are always passionate about learning. We empower educators through knowledge and networking to change their societies.
What inspired us to start Education Square is that the large number of initiatives and educational organizations in Egypt that is providing education services for children and youth under 18 year who represents nearly 40% of the total population in Egypt, but there is a lack of a platform that supports practitioners in education and educational entrepreneurs to provide them knowledge and skills they need to learn along with sharing experiences with each other despite the passion they have.
For this reason, we started Education Square to build a community-based hub of practitioners in Egypt through trainings and seminars that balances between:
- Trends and authenticity:
Egypt has a rich heritage of culture, folksongs, local games and hand crafts which reflects on our services to blend between local cultures and global trends.
- Theories and practice:
To reduce the gap between the academia and practices in education, we present different perspectives with giving the space for research and application.
- Formal and non-formal education:
Educators in both fields are welcomed in our space; formal education (public and private schools) and non-formal education (educational initiatives, NGOs and corporations)

What do we want to fix:
There’s an absence of a community-based network in Egypt that proves trainings, learning resources, and networking in education, pedagogy and education management aligned with Egypt’s rich culture and global practices and trends.
