SEKEM Friends


The five associations of SEKEM Friends in Europe were established to mainly support the cultural work of the SEKEM initiative. Most educational and social projects depend on financial support that comes to a big part from the annual profits of SEKEM. 10 % of the profits are devoted for the SEKEM Development Foundation underneath which such projects like the Chamomile Children or the educational center Mahad are organized. Nonetheless, more funds are needed to keep the cultural activities of the SEKEM Development Association alive. This can happen through financial or in-kind-donations and project proposals for public funds for development aid.


Moreover, the SEKEM Friends see their task in building a bridge between Europe and the Egyptian initiative and in promoting the vision of SEKEM. Various events are used for an inter-cultural and inter-religious dialog. A special focus lies on young people and exchange programs.
