Youth Ambassador Jurriaan Middelhoff in Egypt

Earlier this month, NL ambassador for Youth, Work and Education Jurriaan Middelhoff was in Egypt and Lebanon to visit a number of youth-related projects. And of course, his trip to Egypt wouldn’t have been complete without a visit to Orange Corners Upper Egypt.

Fortunately enough, his visit coincided with a hackathon, organised by our Orange Corners Upper Egypt implementing partner Outreach Egypt. During this hackathon, entrepreneurs and students from rural Upper Egypt worked together on food and waste challenges.

Ambassador Middelhoff: “Witnessed the incredible potential of young Egyptians during an inspiring student hackathon organised by Orange Corners. These young minds are the future of Egypt’s economy. Truly enjoyed the energy in Cairo!”
