Giving back to the Community
EDC believes that good corporate citizenship requires active contributions to the local community. In 2010, the company joined The Springboard Organization that aims to improve education in Egypt's rural areas. EDC currently supports two of the 200 schools that fall under the Springboard umbrella and plans to increase this number. EDC actively contributes to the welfare and development of its 'adopted' schools with complete renovation projects for their premises. Going forward, EDC is committed to expanding its contributions to the community by increasing the number of schools it supports, under Springboard while at the same time, extending its support to a further range of charitable organizations. EDC has also contributed to the governments’ goal of training the youth and university graduates in order to build a better Egyptian learning society by conducting three day development programs for some university students in EDC's Training Center.
