IDEAS partners with a school in Menouf, Egypt. This school was established in 1930 and is renowned for its high standard of education.

The school has an excellent reputation in Menoufiya, a province in the Nile Delta, and there is a waiting list of students who would like to attend this school.

The school is also a place which builds social relations with the community, and among the students and parents. This is significant in a school where 20% of the students are Christian, and 80% are Muslim. The current needs for this school include:
