“Our dream is to strengthen ties between youth in the Middle East and other regions,” says Waleed Adel, the young Egyptian who founded Have a DreamThe organization is giving Arab youth the opportunity to volunteer abroad through their programs in Asia.  

“We started the organization in 2014 together with a group of young Egyptians, inspired by the rich experiences we had while traveling. We dream of giving the chance to Egyptian youth, and youth from all over the world, to get out of their cocoon and be introduced to different cultures,” says one of its founders, Waleed Adel.

The organization has already run four programs in China, Malaysia and Indonesia, and is inviting young Egyptians and Arabs to their next program, to be held in Salatiga, Central Java. The opportunity is open for Arab youngsters from Egypt, Emirates, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Jordan between 18 and 40 years old. The project includes accommodation and daily meals, while the volunteer pays the cost of airline tickets, visa and 1000 L.E as well as Have A Dream fees.
