The philosophy of the "Decent Life" initiative - which was announced by President Sisi in early 2019 - is based on combining three basic elements in Egyptian society, they are; Government support, the operation of construction sector companies, and assistance to the lower-income classes.
From this point of view, the initiative aims to exploit the capabilities of construction companies to develop and build homes in the most needy villages and slum areas in urban areas. The objectives of the initiative can be summarized in the following points as monitored by a study by the Egyptian Center for Thought:
Alleviating the burdens of citizens in the most needy communities in the countryside and urban slums.
Raising the economic, social and environmental level of families in the lowest-income villages, enabling them to obtain all basic services and providing job opportunities to strengthen the independence of citizens and motivate them to improve the standard of living for their families and their local communities.
Developing the villages most in need and providing all facilities, health and educational services, and sports and cultural activities.
