In all its developmental efforts, AUEED seeks to maintain the national Egyptian identity through:
• Offering education opportunities to everyone without discrimination while promoting the
individuals' freedom, creativity and human dignity

pursue a better life.
• Addressing all forms of poverty: cultural, financial and that related to capacity and skills.
• Creating job opportunities that enable developing the community, especially low-income.
• Reviving the cultural and artistic heritage of Upper Egypt.
AUEED Vision
A sustainable community that endorses human values, dignity and rights, where the people,
especially the poor in Upper Egypt, are empowered to utilise all their potentials in ways that help
