Egypt to empower a generation of green micro-entrepreneurs

Queen of Green is providing a micro- entrepreneur Policy into Practice to empower the youth to start their own businesses and emerge the green economy in Egypt.

Ambassador Hope developed the Foreign Empowerment Policy for President Obama and the G20 to shift from an aid to empowerment for the G192 countries.
Egypt invested in educating a generation of youth but failed to grow the entrepreneurial system to empower the youth after graduation.
Egyptian youth think that if they don’t get a job in the government or private sector then they are condemned to a life of ‘coffee shops and poverty’….we can help them shift into the 3rd sector that of self-employment.
The Middle East has 100 million unemployed youth: the region is wasting its natural resources and the talent and energy of its youth.  Ambassador Hope has developed a Policy and practice which plans ‘top down’ and invests ‘bottom up’.
The Program will start in Cairo, which is home to 22 million people.
It is amazing to think that 10% of the Middle East population live in one City.  Ambassador Hope gave a live interview on Nile TV in Cairo with President Obama in the White House.
Green roofs will be installed in 6th October City improving the levels of oxygen and reducing CO2 emissions.  A trash-to-waste system will be expanded to give youth the opportunity to clean the City and make money from the trash. Taxi drivers will receive ‘road rage’ training and a youth-run cooperative will keep the taxis clean to improve the image for the tourists. Youth task forces will install irrigation and landscape systems.  Youth- micro-entrepreneurs will sell, distribute and install the Queen of Green technologies.
The unemployed youth will register by mobile phone for a micro-enterprise license and select a ‘Business in a Box’ that suits their skills and interests. The ‘Business in a Box’ will be delivered with the technologies, products and step-by-step guide.  Working capital will be credited to their mobile bank account and they can receive and make payments to any mobile phone in the world.
Queen of Green FZE will manage the program from UAE and the youth micro-entrepreneurs can access experienced entrepreneurs by phone or sms to answer real time questions on how to start and grow their businesses. Cairo University will offer fast-track courses for unemployed youth to learn the processes and start earning.
Hope said “simplifying the processes and speeding up the youth’s ability to ‘learn, earn and serve’ is vital to a positive transformation for Egypt. We can put youth to work in their own businesses, emerge the green economy and create prosperity from the ground up”.

Queen of Green is a global green cooperative brand,a network of green stakeholders from 29 diverse sectors who share a common goal of transforming their world. We unite 29 stakeholder groups to cooperate and collaborate to implement 14 Socialdevelopment Programs that will improve the quality of life for 200 million of the world's poor. Ambassador Hope developed the new Foreign Empowerment Policy for President Obama, Organizing for America and the G20 leaders. Ambassador Hope has developed a Social Investment Portfolio of 14 programs to empower the poor in 70+ countries. She passionately believes in empowering the talent and skills of the poorest of the poor to become green and sustainable. By integrating the development process to ensure energy, food, and health security is combined with education and micro-enterprises for economic security it is possible to mobilize millions of citizens to be the change they want to see in the world.
