Working and living in Cairo, Egypt.

About us…

Hi!

We are two Finnish students, Pia Pellonpää and Saara Nurmi, from Jyväskylä University of Applied Sciences. We have studied social services for two and a half years now. We are doing our supervised practical training, child welfare and family work, in Cairo, Egypt during 6th of January and 31th of March. Since the first year of our studies we started to plan to do one of the practical training’s abroad and last summer we really started actual arrangements. After long searching we found our host organization, Kulttuurikameleontit ry, from the net. And why we wanted to go abroad? Because we think it’s important to get to know other cultures and it also gives good experience and new perspectives. During this practical training we are working with street children and young women/mothers.

Enjoy our blog! 🙂
