My name is Ahmed, I am 31 years old and I have a degree in social work, but it was impossible for me to find a job. My dream was to work in an establishment or a company. Every time I went to large international companies for an interview, they as me if I know how to use Microsoft Office, Word and Excel. I have never had the opportunity to learn about these programs and the courses are too expensive for me to afford. Thanks to Allah, I found an opportunity to attend these courses for free through the Muslim Families Association and the Coptic Evangelical Organization for Social Service. I applied, interviewed, and was able to complete the training offered online. When I successfully completed the training I began applying for jobs and found a good job with a Target. I work as a bookkeeper and cashier at the commercial center in New Minia.
I want to extend my gratitude to the Coptic Evangelical Organization for Social Services and the Muslim Families Association for their efforts to help Egyptian youth live better lives.
