Our Testimonials

See things differently

Being a Helm Ambassador has taught me that your weakest point can be your strongest point. It has enabled me to see things differently and to work harder to achieve my dreams. Because of this, I am now able to inspire and motivate others; to encourage them to push beyond their limits.

Advocacy and Support

Our partnership with Helm started 5 years ago where it was built on the common grounds of advocacy and support for the rights of persons with disabilities to an inclusive and accessible life in Egypt. I think what makes Helm's work so impactful is their focus simple; they pinpoint what persons with disabilities need in Egypt and then find the resources to fill the gap to eliminate that need. Helm always finds a way to help.

Accessible and inclusive

Even though Helm Foundation is a young foundation, it has achieved more than what others could not achieve in decades. Helm has supported many places to become accessible and inclusive to persons with disabilities as well as changing the mindset of the workplace culture.
