    MCIT Launches ‘Youth Enablement for Freelancing’ Initiative

    Cairo, 1 August 2020

    The Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) has launched the “Youth Enablement for Freelancing” initiative, with the aim to train 20,000 young people, nationwide, on freelancing skills, through e-platforms. This is achieved in collaboration with the Ministry of Youth and Sports, through the integrated community centers that MCIT has technologically developed, with Persons with Disabilities (PwDs) making 10% of the trainees.
    This comes in light of the directives of the Minister of Communications and Information Technology Amr Talaat for launching initiatives that target upskilling young people to qualify them for freelance work.
    The initiative provides a two-month online training. The training includes providing general life skills, such as communication and leadership, and providing guidance on the selection of the specialized training areas.
    This is in addition to providing specialized professional training through two tracks, the first of which is technical, such as computer networks, programming, operating systems and cybersecurity. The second entails technical training in digital marketing, graphic design, mobile application and website development, and administrative work.
    Training concludes with explaining how to find a decent job opportunity through freelancing platforms.
    The initiative comes within the framework of implementing MCIT strategy, since one of the key pillars of this strategy is to build the Egyptian citizen. It also comes to meet the market needs that led to the widespread of digital technology learning opportunities and leveraging freelancers’ capacities.
    The initiative contributes to building the capacities and skills of young people in various fields that help them find job opportunities through digital platforms. This comes in light of the ever growing concept of freelancing, in Egypt, for the flexibility it provides, attracting many young people who wish to increase their income, invest their time to produce an added value, and compete in the global labor market to provide their expertise.
    Registration for the training grant is available through the following website:
