What is CairoContra?

CairoContra is the first hub in Cairo to train content creators and runs the only independent, entertainment Egyptian magazine written by youth for youth. We offer a variety of interactive workshops, all designed to deliver practical training that prepares its attendees for the world of content creation, and an internship program which includes intensive training and on-the-job experience within the Contra magazine.

Our goal at Contra is to deliver skilled content creators and foster youth voices and talents. Contra is constantly changing and gets better with your support and feedback – leave a review on our social media channels, comment on the articles, send an email, or ask a question and get involved!

Who is Behind It?

CairoContra was created by Mariem ELTagoury during her college days in July 2013. Since then, CairoContra has grown from a blog into a hub for content creators to discover their skills and find their voices through the youth run magazine.
