Cairo, Egypt theme
Co-owner Kent Beck lived in Egypt two different times for most of the 1980’s. First time, straight out of Goshen College, Kent lived in Tanta, a rural overgrown “village” (tallest building five floors!) of nearly a million people situated in the Nile Delta between Cairo and Mediterranean city of Alexandria. Kent served as director of Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) Egypt program, (a volunteer service & development agency of the Mennonite Church) comprised mostly of North American teachers and health professionals.
Kent traveled extensively within Egypt & the Middle East visiting MCC personnel and relating to schools, hospitals and programs supported by MCC. Following graduate school (MS in International Education from Indiana University in Bloomington) and a semester of Mennonite seminary in Elkhart, Kent returned to Egypt and lived in Cairo in the area known as Heliopolis.
