social responsibility

At Oriental Weavers, we take being one of Egypt’s largest corporations as a responsibility toward our community and society. We acknowledge the importance of creating meaningful and beneficial societal change through our corporate social responsibility agenda. Our CSR strategy looks at actioning Oriental Weavers’ development pillars through two foundations: Mohamed Farid Khamis for Development Foundation and Farid Khamis for Development Foundation.

Mohamed Farid Khamis for Development Foundation, founded in 2004, focuses on Learning and Development and has, since inception, managed and positively impacted thousands of beneficiaries through its programs.

The Farid Khamis for Development Foundation, founded in 2007, has over the years adopted youth and family empowerment and healthcare as its pillars for development and community outreach. With initiatives that are managed monthly and annually, the foundation continues to support hundreds of individuals and families.

Learning and Development, Youth Empowerment, Health and well-being and contributing to the betterment of underserved populations are the core development pillars of Oriental Weavers’ CSR strategy. Since its foundation, OW has engaged in multiple initiatives that continue to this day, building on the importance of true sustainable development and contribution.
