How Does Muhammed Youssef Balance Education and Charity

Muhammed Youssef

Running a charitable institution alone isn’t easy, especially if you are working and studying at the same time. This is what’s so impressive about Muhammed Youssef. Through his dedication and hard work, he was able to find the perfect balance and be successful at both. He is a sensational figure in Upper Egypt because of his relentless effort to educate underprivileged children.

Managing My Book Society single handedly

Muhammed started a budding community of teachers and volunteers in his hometown Qena. It was during his first year in college that he planned to start this charitable act. He wanted the less fortunate kids to get the same level of education that students of their age got in school. But starting a charity alone is no joke, especially when you have limited resources. Fortunately, Muhammed had planned everything well in advance. As soon as he saw the number of students increasing, he started looking for some of the best teachers in his locality. 

Luckily, he got in touch with a few teachers who decided to spend time with the kids every day. Muhammed said, “I consider myself as one of the luckiest in Egypt because these teachers agreed to support me. It shows that they have equal enthusiasm to help the kids. I didn’t want the charity to become another organization that ran with the help of sponsors. Yes, money is important. But I feel that education should always come first. Most of us have the privilege of getting the type of education we want. But these kids don’t. And I want them to enjoy that privilege. My only challenge was dividing time for different students and finding teachers. Thankfully, that problem is now solved.”

Working and studying simultaneously 

Muhammed has his hands full at the moment. He is not only the leader of the charitable community but also a computer science student at Delta University. Most students find it hard to cope with the computer science course because it involves learning multiple computer languages. But Muhammed has been consistently acing his semesters and at the same time spending time as a freelance graphic designer.

When asked about how he manages everything so efficiently, he said, “I think it’s all about your desire and passion for what you do that helps you manage everything properly. To me, learning computer science is equal to a teenager playing his favorite sport. I do it out of love and not out of force or pressure. That’s why I don’t feel the burden of exams. Similarly, when I’m teaching the students, I do it because I love it. It’s not something that someone is forcing me to do. I’m liable here to myself. And I think that gives me the freedom to manage everything according to how I want.”

According to Muhammed, charity should come to you naturally. His commendable leadership in educating so many homeless, underprivileged, and less fortunate kids has already made headlines in Egypt. More volunteers now want to associate themselves with his community. It proves how a simple act of kindness can go a long way to making a change in society.
