Through a generous grant from the RELO office at the US Embassy in Cairo, E-ERA was able to support an Egyptian delegation of eight youth and one educator to participate in the iEARN Annual International Conference and Youth Summit that took place in Barrie, Canada.
One teacher, two iEARN Egypt students, one iEARN Egypt alumni and four ACCESS students were able to make it as finalists for the scholarship and one-self funded student. The selection was handled by three board members and RELO office.
The Egyptian delegation actively participated in the event. The delegation also enjoyed the cultural experience in Canada, site seeing, and learning about the world and global issues through their international colleagues.
The 18th iEARN Conference and 15th Youth Summit will take place in Taiwan in 2011. Stay tuned for more info!
