  • Sustaining Smiles - Draw a Smile Dinner

    Draw a Smile would like to cordially invite you all to a fundraising dinner in support of its 2012 Ramadan Campaign, featuring a very special guest - Dr Hany El Banna OBE.

    The dinner will take place at the beautiful Ariana Restaurant on Harrow Road on Sunday 8th July 2012. The evening will include a delicious 3 course meal with unlimited soft drinks, an auction featuring illustrious items on offer, where all proceeds will go towards the campaign, a presentation on Draw a Smile's crucial work in Egypt and a keynote presentation by our highly esteemed guest for the evening.
    This evening will be a fantastic opportunity to learn about the work of Draw a Smile. The team will reveal the fruits of the past several months of research by launching the charity's brand new project in Egypt; The Draw a Smile Vocational Training Centre. The volunteers both in the UK and in Egypt have been working tirelessly to install the foundations for this project, which is due to receive its first intake of trainees this month.

    The team in the UK would thus like to invite all our supporters of the past and present to thank them for their support and show them what they have enabled us to achieve; and would also like to welcome our new friends to introduce them to our charity and hopefully earn their invaluable support in the future.

  • Artist Wael Shawky Event

    New Programme at the Wide Open School (Hayward Gallery)
    11th June-11th July 2012
    Wael Shawky
    (b.1971, Alexandria, Egypt)

    Wael Shawky's installations, performances and videos explore pivotal issues in society, politics, culture and religion in the Arab World. He aims to show 'a society in transition, a condition that is not clear, a translation,' and uses many of the techniques of popular entertainment - both ancient and modern - to re-present the causes and effects of political events. Taking the format of a TV gameshow, with children as actors, he has re-staged the assassination of Egypt's President Sadat in 1981 and, using 200-year-old Italian marionettes, he has retold episodes from the history of the Crusades as a horror show seen through Arab eyes. His animated film installation Al-Aqsa Park re-imagines the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem as a fairground carousel while Larvae Channel 2 (2009), in which an elderly Palestinian couple describe their forced eviction from their home in the West Bank, combines film with animation with cartoon-like outlines drawn around the figures, emphasising their every move and gesture.

  • 'Asmaa' film screening event.

  • International Inspiration- Egypt

    Egypt is the twentieth country to join the International Inspiration programme.

    Egypt was selected as the final International Inspiration country using criteria based on sport development, youth development and educational indicators. There is a real passion to enrich lives through sport in Egypt and senior Egyptian stakeholders in education and sport, as well as young people themselves, have been consulted in recent months and work is now underway to determine the strategic direction of the country programme.

    Seb Coe, Chair of LOCOG said: “I’m thrilled to welcome Egypt as the 20th and final country to the International Inspiration programme. Our vision from the outset was to use the power of the Games to inspire change – engaging the youth of the world through sport. The work the programme will achieve in this country will allow us to reach out to thousands more children and young people and inspire them to go beyond their personal best.”

    Baroness Grey-Thompson, International Inspiration Ambassador said: “Sport is a powerful means of engaging young people and allowing them to channel their energy in a positive way. International Inspiration will give young people in Egypt the access to sport that I had growing up, that which inspired me to achieve things in my life that I am proud of, including my Paralympic gold medals.”
