Mission Statement

The Centre for Development and Population Activities (CEDPA) is a nonprofit international organization dedicated to empowering women to be full partners with men in creating a more secure future for themselves, and their families, communities and nations. Founded in 1975, CEDPA promotes positive change through its partnership programs, training and advocacy in over 40 countries. CEDPA and its development partners are committed to expanding women’s access to health services and education, choice and participation in all aspects of life.

 

Since opening its Cairo headquarters in 1995, CEDPA has worked tirelessly to raise the health and education status of Egyptian youth and adolescents. CEDPA’s key non-formal education programs focus on developing the basic life skills and reproductive health knowledge of young women and men. These programs include the New Horizons Program for Girls and Young Women and the New Visions programs for Boys and Young Men.
