Founded in 2007, Robin Hood was the brainchild of IT Programme Manager, Magda Metwally. Magda Metwally & Para el Mundo (PaM) become partners and kicked off Robin Hood Project in Mancora. Our After School and Literacy Programme grew rapidly in 2 years.
The project enrolls an average of 50 children between the ages of 9-12. Through PaM, Robin Hood, benefited from numerous volunteers, offering skill exchange and experiences. In 2009 Magda Metwally, became fully responsible for the project. 50% of the funding is covered personally by Magda Metwally. The project continues to grow with a kick-off of Robin hood Spanish School. The Spanish School’s main priority is to fund the charity.
