We have experiences that we could share with others, and being an umbrella of tens of organizations in all country, we could add value for the ALF network in Egypt and all Mediterranean countries.

Why do you want to join the ALF Network?: 

AOYE is one of the first organizations which joined ALF network since its inception and we have worked in cooperation with ALF in many projects as partners with other Mediterranean agencies.
