About Roota

Literacy Classes for Zabaleen Community


  • ROOTA is  a non profit Canadian Charity whose mission is to raise the  educational and economical standards of the poor.  ROOTA donors are currently supporting a marginalized community in Egypt - the trash collectors (the Zabaleen) by working with a local civil society organization (the Association for the Protection of the Environment- APE).
  • ROOTA donors provided sewing machines and home looms for the Zabaleen women to be economically independent and relieve poverty.
  • ROOTA donors also provided  text books for the students, chairs and desks for the classrooms, stools for kindergarten children and IPADS for students to enhance education and literacy
