Biographical Information

"Maged Hosny was most influenced by the late Samuel Habib, the founder and former director of CEOSS, who was his godfather and mentor. Maged considers Father Samuel a “leadership expert” who knew how to help people recognize their own value and potential. Father Samuel taught him that every person possesses capabilities that inspire them and that success and impact can be achieved even when resources are limited. Maged said that when he stepped into Habib’s office, he had a new understanding of what was most important in the world and this was very meaningful.

"From his youth, Maged gathered a small group of volunteers and led them in providing services to marginalized communities. Maged visited several poor districts in Cairo and met a lot of people in need. He wanted to gain a deeper insight into their problems, get to know them better, and help them understand their own leadership potential and ability to act as agents of change in their communities.

"To date, Maged has initiated career counseling programs in collaboration with major development organizations, including the Egyptian-Swiss Development Fund, the German Agency for Technical Cooperation (GTZ), the Aga Khan Development Network, and the Youth Center for Development. Around 500 young people have completed his programs."[1]
