Sawiris Foundation annually sponsors 10 prominent students to attend the Don Bosco Institute in Cairo to obtain an industrial diploma (3 years of study) or a technical diploma (5 years of study) in the fields of electricity and mechanics. As an Italian secondary technical institute in Egypt, the institute has been a successful model because of its combination of advanced practical training and updated educational techniques. According to a cooperation agreement between the Egyptian and the Italian governments, Don Bosco graduates can be admitted to Egyptian and Italian universities. Sawiris Foundation has always prided itself with ensuring quality education, both traditional and nontraditional, is accessible to everyone. One of our goals is to ensure all students have an accessible and inclusive environment to learn.
