The Biggest Smile in Luxor
Abdel was born and raised in the village of Al Birat in West Bank Luxor and is also an incredible proud host. He is the second half of Luxor Learning Hubs management team and co-founder. Abdel is all round amazing at everything and can be found settling in our guests in his home town and always on hand to help and advise with his big heart and big smile.
The Mighty Mastafa
Mastafa is one of our core hub team members and is all round a great energy with our young people.
He is studying to be an Engineer and assists us in all our in hub activities.
He really is a gem in the rough from making bow and arrows from palm trees to rounding up our little people to enjoy hub activities.
We have encouraged Mastafa to take his Forest School Level 1 training to advance his skills to work at the Learning Hub and I'm sure he will be with us for many years to come.
Volunteers & Workshop Leaders
We started this project in 2021 with 3 parent volunteers.
In 2022 we worked with an all Egyptian staff network and invited local crafts people and practitioners to run workshops.
In 2023 we will be looking to offer extended training to our Egyptian staff in Forest School skills and also invite educators to help enhance our immersive projects and workshops.
As director of The Luxor Learning Hub, i have utilised my many years in educational projects, educational roles and skills with community groups to lead most of our learning hub sessions.
In 2023 we seek dynamic and skilled educators to spend extended time with us in Luxor, with an emphasis on working with Egyptian Educators who would like to learn more about atonomus learning environments.
