DRM for Schools on the back of this Drugs Rap ‘n’ Mix event we have developed the idea further such that we created a unique opportunity in educating our school children about drugs using a peer-led approach with music and arts as a viable conduit to send a powerful anti-drugs message.
RSFI believes in the role young people can play in initiating change and translating international issues into local community activities. Of these key issues that continue to shape our relations and societies is that of coexistence and religious harmony. According to a new study by the Pew Research Center (January 2014) the share of countries with a high or very high level of social hostilities involving religion reached a six-year peak in 2012.
RSFI believes in the role of youth in the development and progress of Egypt. The Foundation also believes in the importance of developing a strategic plan for empowering the Egyptian youth in order to to carry out this role and become a model for youth around the globe.
