Our Work


Coptic Orphans strives to unlock the God-given potential of the most vulnerable children in Egypt through the power of education. Working through grassroots partners and a network of over 500 specially trained Church-based volunteers, by God’s grace, we empower thousands of Coptic children to reclaim their dignity and self-worth.

Not Alone

Not Alone gives fatherless Coptic children access to quality education while nurturing a well-rounded, service-oriented character so they can succeed in school, escape poverty, and one day, change their communities.

The Valuable Girl Project

The Valuable Girl Project leverages education and mentoring to unleash the leadership potential in Egypt’s young women, empowering them to become capable, self-confident, visionary young change-makers who demonstrate both the commitment and talent needed to fight problems like poverty, early marriage, and religious intolerance.

Serve to Learn

Serve to Learn is a service-learning experience that gives individuals an opportunity to volunteer in Egypt, and build loving bonds with the children we serve, their families, and communities. Volunteers visit homes just as Christ served, and teach English and a love of education.


Our Be’ daya (pronounced Beh-uh-day-uh) “With My Own Hands” microfinance initiative provides interest-free loans to female-heads of households, who are particularly disadvantaged in rural Egypt, to start income-generating projects. Upon the successful setup and operation of the project, each woman will repay the original loan which will then go to a revolving fund.
