Reaching equal opportunities and recognition of all citizens of Egypt
“Our purpose is to promote peaceful co-existence among followers of different religions and to prevent violence and promote early conflict resolution in Egypt.”
Distinguished scholars and activists from different religious and professional backgrounds established the Council of Arakhna (elders) and Wise in Egypt in 2014. Their goal was to promote peaceful co-existence among followers of different religions, to prevent violence and promote early conflict resolution in Egypt.
Their main focus: interaction with Egyptian stakeholders to defend the rights of minorities and oppressed people; the organization of interfaith dialogue forums to promote human rights, dignity and peaceful co-existence; assuring that all citizens of Egypt have the same opportunities regardless of their religious or gender backgrounds.
