Samia Shenouda Nassif

Samia’s story is truly inspiring. She has been at A.P.E. for 22 years, having come to the organisation at the age of 9 years old. She began by taking in work at home and training with A.P.E. from home. Later she joined the rug department in Moquattam and learnt to read and write, eventually receiving her diploma.

She got married at the age of 16 and has 3 children. Samia’s day, like all the girls, begins at 8am and ends at 3.30pm. Her role in the rug department involves dealing with finance, accounting and handling orders that come in.
