Update #1

On the ground in Cairo!

Comment

After announcing the campaign last week at Sundance. I've arrived in Cairo to join the team. It is great to see the fellows in action! 

There is an energy here that is contagious. Yesterday, my co-partner Yasmin and I went out to see the Remembrance of January 28th march, which went from Kasr el Nile to Maspero.

We made a stream of the experience for the website. Please check it out.

Thank you to our early supporters! We need you all to continue to spread the word into your networks to make the 18 Days in Egypt fellowship a reality!

Cheers, Jigar Mehta
