Culture meets philanthropy at the Muslim Philanthropy Digital Library | Al-Masry Al-Youm: Today’s News from Egypt   Leave a comment

“Last week, the John D. Gerhart Center for Philanthropy and Civic “Engagement launched the Muslim Philanthropy Digital Library in Cairo, the first library of its kind in the world.

In partnership with the American University in Cairo and the Women and Memory Forum – an Egyptian NGO – the Gerhart Center envisions the library as an accessible digital resource on philanthropic practices in Muslim-majority countries and Muslim communities worldwide.

But the library does not restrict itself to the common understanding of philanthropy.

“We look at philanthropy in a broad sense that includes giving money, time and energy as well as civic engagement,” explains Sherine al-Taraboulsi, the library project manager.”
