Through her work, Hadeer teaches aspiring entrepreneurs the tools they need to establish and maintain start-up companies.
Hadeer is passionate about education. When she recognized that rural villagers did not have easy access to a school or public library, she organized the building of “bookshelves” to spread the culture of reading and promote self-development among the youth and children. Hadeer believes Egyptian youth hold the promise of a bright future in their country, and she desires to help shape these young minds into tomorrow’s leaders.
