Happy Happy 4th!

| June 30, 2012

Our great American holiday, the 4th of July, is just a few days off as I write this short blog. At the Humanity Project, we wish everyone a safe, happy holiday — and we hope that you’ll also take a moment to reflect on what it means. Just today I received an email from my friend and colleague in Egypt, Dalia Khalil, the director of our partner organization in that country. The Egyptian Association for Educational Resources, or E-ERA, is a progressive nonprofit that works with the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and Johns Hopkins University among others. Dalia’s email about the ongoing turbulence and uncertainty in Egypt reminded me once again about how fortunate we are in the United States.

A Helping Hand For Young Women

| March 8, 2012

(Editor’s Note: The Humanity Project has partnered with a respected nonprofit group in Egypt: the Egyptian Association for Educational Resources, or E-ERA. They are non-governmental and non-religious, working with such organizations as the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and Johns Hokins University. Our partnership involves a blog-and-photo exchange to promote better understanding of the humanity we all share. This is E-ERA’s fourth blog about their work to help young people, an article written especially for the Humanity Project by Aliaa Elaghoury of E-ERA. We feel it is especially appropriate on this International Women’s Day.)

Reaching Out

| October 14, 2011

The Humanity Project is growing, expanding — and reaching out to more people than ever. Our signature program remains Anti-bullying Through The Arts, of course, and we’re committed to making sure this effective anti-bullying system reaches as many children as possible, now and for years to come. But we’re also connecting in new ways, even going international as part of our efforts. As part of this, we have formed a wonderful blog and photo exchange with the Egyptian Association for Educational Resources, a respected and non-religious nonprofit organization based in Cairo.

The Humanity Project today is going global in a new way. And this is only the beginning. We’re proud to announce another new partnership, this time with a fellow nonprofit half a world away: the Egyptian Association for Educational Resources, or E-ERA. This respected organization is non-political, non-governmental, non-religious. E-ERA offers a variety of programs to improve life for people in North Africa with the focus on youth empowerment and leadership. They provide civic education, professional development and promote youth volunteerism as well as cross-cultural understanding.
