If not now, then when?
27 women, from different generations, graduates of Sacré-Cœur schools in Egypt, we decided to establish ASSILA NGO.
True to the values we were raised with, believing that each one is responsible to do the right thing and to strive for justice, with a strong desire to give back to our society, and by redeploying our professional acumen, we founded ASSILA.
ASSILA is a mission-driven, non-profit organization, dedicated to expanding the impact of development through knowledge transfer and acceleration.
As founders and members, we trusted in our strong fundamentals. Reinforced by our diversity and individuality, we joined our skills and networks to focus and find innovative solutions to existing problems, with the promise of delivering real results.
The Sacré-Cœur alumni have learned across the multiple generations that there are a set of values that have marked them throughout the years. They are these same core values that have driven them to establish ASSILA. Giving generously, empathizing genuinely, and empowering with the unending strength of sisterhood, our values are organic and lead us to search for excellence in all our endeavours.
Our Mission is to create a community of human-centered volunteers, who work on accelerating development through cohabitation and strategic thinking by providing high-caliber consulting services to accelerate social development, and by recruiting, training and mobilizing the volunteers to make a meaningful impact in the community while continuing their career development.
Our Vision is to have a community ready to serve humanity and leave no one behind, driven by our core values and by utilizing skills, knowledge, and resources. We strive to create valuable impact by harnessing the untapped potential of both non-profits and volunteers to tackle existing problems using innovative solutions through providing high-caliber consulting services.
"HEART MEETS MIND"
ASSILA’s Acceleration Program aims at substantially increasing the social and financial impact of NGOs, through customized solutions, targeted consultancies, and various capacity building programs.
We provide sustainable, human centered, development solutions
to help organizations transform and multiply their community impact.
"HEART FOR CHANGE"
ASSILA's business model is based on the conviction that within our volunteer’s population, there is a genuine desire to serve the community at large.
We carefully select and train our volunteers to ensure that they can be very well equipped with knowledge and skills to support our customers in the various communities. Knowledge sharing take place in an interactive environment based on design thinking and human centered approaches, and is delivered by quality experts in the various fields.
"HEART IN ACTION"
ASSILA holds on to the legacy of its founders and various members who have spent years supporting critical health cases in need, and will continue to serve individuals in need based on rigorous assessments.
In this pillar, ASSILA acknowledges that, although sustainable development is the way to create real change, Emergency Response cannot be ignored, and in the journey
for transformation we cannot turn an eye from the critical cases we come across. In this pillar, we ensure that our support will always be as swift as possible.
