Dear Prospective Offerors:


For over four decades, the American people have partnered with the people of Egypt to promote an environment where all groups in Egyptian society can lead healthy, productive lives.

USAID’s program in Egypt, totaling over $30 billion since 1978, has directly and fundamentally supported gains such as a reduction in infant and maternal mortality rates, improvement in reading ability in the early grades, and an increase in marketable skills – leading to jobs and lasting prosperity.


Since 1978, USAID has invested more than $3.5 billion to bring potable water and sanitation services to over 25 million Egyptians.


This government-to-government activity focuses on early grade learning in support of the implementation of the Egyptian Ministry of Education’s reform agenda. It builds on previous USAID programming to ensure that Egyptian students are able to learn the fundamental core skills of reading, comprehension, writing, mathematics, and English language by grade 3, at the end of their early primary school experience. This activity also provides remedial learning for students in grades 4-9 who have difficulties reading at their grade level.


Literate Village is a four-year activity that focuses on 2,150 economically disadvantaged villages in the Sohag, Beheira, and Assiut governorates with high rates of illiteracy among mothers and low school attendance rates among children. Using an intergenerational approach to learning to eradicate illiteracy, this activity strengthens literacy among children in community schools and improves early grade reading instruction, particularly for remedial readers.
