Mr. Wahid Naguib, General Director and Mrs. Dina Raouf, Deputy Director extended a warm welcome to Karim & Pony Noujaim, American Association for Upper Egypt. The meeting occurred on 12/04/2019 at the Association of Upper Egypt for Education and Development headquarters in Cairo, Egypt. Mr. Naguib and Mr. Noujaim exchanged some common experiences when it came to their involvement with their respective organizations. The meeting also helped boost the personal contact between the two organizations. Great visit.




Karim & Pony Noujaim enjoyed the various colorful and creative work on display during the "Torathna" exhibition (that displayed Akhmim and Hagaza works) and did not leave empty handed. The exhibition was from October 2nd to 6th, 2019 at the Association of Upper Egypt for Education and Development (AUEED) headquarters. They also had the pleasure to meet Loula Lahham, Project Director, and Mr. Abd El Fatah El Sissi, President of Egypt, had personally presented Ms. Lahaam with a recognition certificate for her work on the exhibition what it represents. 

Cristo Rey High School - Sacramento donates $538.06 to AAUE

Karim Noujaim, President of the AAUE receives a $538.06 check from Ms. Yarely Contreras, President of the Students Leadership, Cristo Rey High School - Sacramento. The various classes organized a "penny war" that the Sophomores won. In reality, all students won by helping the less fortunate in the schools of Upper Egypt. The zeal with which the students collected, sorted and cashed 53,806 pennies was heart warming. To the far left of the picture is Mr. Andreas Agos, Principal, and to the far right is Ms. Rocquel Rodriguez, Teacher and
organizer of the event. Thank You Cristo Rey of Sacramento.
