Community Service


Our “SVS Community Service ” programme aims to prepare students to become active members of society, through encouraging them to apply classroom principles and acquire skills through projects that serve the community.

Over the past few years, SVS has led various awareness and fundraising events, including:

Uniform Drive screening - SVS

Community schooling - El Fayoum

Community schooling is an educational system that provides a viable alternative to public schooling, in rural areas in Upper Egypt, and is convenient for children who did not get the chance to attain basic education, or those who dropped out of school. The schools offer non-traditional teaching methods, aiming to develop the children’s creative thinking and self-learning skills. 
Adopting a Community School:
This initiative aims to create awareness around community schooling, and collect donations of 60.000 EGP to cover the annual School’s expenses, that will provide underprivileged children to get a quality education.
Awareness:
