Abdelrahman Ibrahim has developed and participated in numerous projects in Egypt to provide education to refugees and at-risk communities. As the curator of the World Economic Forum’s Global Shapers’ hub in Alexandria, he has organized PeaceHackMena with the Swedish Institute. The event was a peace hackathon where young leaders from Mediterranean countries exchanged ideas on intercultural dialogue and peacebuilding in the region. One main dimension of the hackathon was to encourage participants to share thoughts on gender equality, conflict prevention, peacebuilding and the refugee crisis. Abdelrahman is currently working on developing an online campaign to increase awareness on gender issues, social stereotypes and gender inequalities in the economic field. Being passionate about education, human development and civil society, he has lived in Ecuador and Columbia where he volunteered as an English teacher through governmental programmes.
