Egypt is not only one of the political and cultural lynchpins of the Arab world. With its abundance of homegrown aid groups, the country also serves as the region’s leading international development hub.
Cairo, Africa’s largest city, hosts a great number of these organizations, including some of the biggest and oldest Arab engineering consultancies; many of them have a long history of working with bilateral and multilateral donors on projects in Africa and the Middle East. The Egyptian capital is also the birthplace and home of the League of Arab States, one of the most influential political and cultural organizations in the Arab world.
Here’s a list of some of the largest Egyptian institutions engaged in foreign aid projects, based on total staff size. Check the Devex jobs board for opportunities with these organizations and more.
