Board of Directors

Since its creation, AAUE has adopted a structure based on voluntary work which allows its Board of directors to ensure that the association is soundly managed. 


Articles of Incorporation

AAUE is a nonprofit public benefit corporation and is not organized for the private gain of any person. It is organized under the Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation Law for charitable purposes. It is organized and operated exclusively for charitable purposes within the meaning of Section 501 (C) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1996.

The property of this corporation is irrevocably dedicated to charitable purposes and no part of the net income or assets of this corporation shall ever inure to the benefit of any director.

Board members

The AAUE's mission is similar to PACHE's ("Les Partenaires de l'Association de la Haute Egypte"), a canadian based charitable organization. AAUE was reorganized in 2009 and a new Board of directors was appointed thanks to the initiative and leadership of PACHE.

The authorized number of directors of the corporation is not less than three (3) and not more than seventeen (17). The current Board of Directors is composed of six members and constitutes AAUE's governing body. The members of the Board direct the Corporation towards reaching its objectives, oversee daily operation, enter into and negotiate all contracts in which the Corporation can legally partake and, in general, exercise, individually and as a whole, the rights and authority held by the Corporation itself. 

Karim Noujaim - President
Samir Mossaad - Vice-president/Treasurer
Pony Noujaim - Secretary
Joseph Baladi - Director
Dr. Frank Nuar - Director
Wahid Boctor - Director


The Board of directors, and all other people involved, are volunteers devoted to the AAUE mission. Without them, we would not be able to operate as their dedication helps keep our operating cost to a minimum (less than 5% of donations). It also allows the AAUE to maximize the disbursement of donors' contributions towards its intended purpose.
