The Four Biscuits: Initiative to Empower Youth with Down’s Syndrome in Egypt

CAIRO – A group of Egyptian women has founded a bakery where young people with Down’s syndrome bake and sell products online and at local markets.

Nada Ahmed, Noura Salem and Sherine Salem co-founded the Four Biscuits to empower people with the condition and help them work, be productive and integrate in society, officially launching the project in August 2017 through a Facebook page.

“They have the right to find job opportunities in a safe environment, and a safe place to be suitable for their abilities,” Ahmed said.

Ahmed added the project started with only three girls and gradually grew to five: Heidy, Mariam, Yehia, Sherihan and Seba.

Ahmed, whose sister is one of the girls, continued to say the team aimed to expand, let other young people join the initiative and have multiple branches all across Egypt.
