Co budeš dělat

We will start our 3-hour journey into one of Cairo’s most extraordinary places with a tuk-tuk tour of the hillside Christian community of garbage collectors, Manshiyat Naser, or Garbage City, where hundreds of buildings are filled with trash collected from around Cairo. We will visit one of the buildings and meet with a local family who collects and sorts household garbage and talk with representatives at two NGOs in the community that empower females and provide education to children. We will continue up the Mokattam Mountain to Saint Simon the Tanner Monastery, a complex of cave churches built into the limestone cliff including the main cathedral that seats more than 10,000 people. You will learn about the history of this Coptic Christian community and the founding of the churches since the 1980s. We will view the scores of Biblical scenes sculpted into the rock by a Polish artist over the past 25 years. And from the hilltop, you will see one of the few murals in Cairo, painted on the faces of dozens of trash recycling buildings. The adventure continues with a zip line ride past the front of the cathedral and the sculptures in the rocks, or ropes course challenges that range from easy to difficult. We will end the tour with tea on the edge of the mountain with a sweeping view of Cairo in time for the sun setting over the city of a thousand minarets.

Adham

I am Adham El Sharkawy and I was born and raised in the city of garbage collectors and featured as one of the subjects in the award-winning documentary Garbage Dreams, http://garbagedreams.com, about three children growing up in Garbage City, one of Cairo’s several urban landfills and recycling centers. I lived in the United State for two years and speak English fluently. I have traveled to Europe and Asia to review other recycling operations and explain the systems of Garbage City. I have been working with the NGOs that serve our community for many years and am a member of the St. Simon the Tanner Cathedral. I work as a freelance fixer and translator for media and film representatives working in Egypt and am currently studying Administrative Sciences in Cairo.
