Sawiris Foundation for Social Development
The Sawiris Foundation was founded in April 2001 as a grant-making foundation. Set up with an endowment from the Sawiris family – which is made up of prominent members of the business world and the development community - it is one of the first family donor foundations dedicated to social development to be established in Egypt. In 2005, the Foundation was granted special consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).
On August 1st, the Sawiris Foundation for Social Development signed an agreement with the Learning Resource Center to start up the Sawiris SENCO Scholarships that granted students applying for the University College London Institute of Education’s Masters in Special and Inclusive Education with partial scholarships.
