Egyptian Cultural Heritage Organisation (ECHO)
Egypt is rich in a cultural heritage that can be traced from the remote prehistoric past to the various stages of world civilisation.
Ancient Egypt's monuments link us to the past and make us aware of past human achievements.
It is our duty to protect and preserve this heritage so that we, and future generations, can share in this historical legacy of our predecessors.
What is ECHO?
The Egyptian Cultural Heritage Organisation (ECHO) is a charitable organisation committed to assisting young Egyptians in preserving and managing the world heritage of Egypt as the most effective, long-term, sustainable and least expensive means of safeguarding the threatened archaeological record.
Also, through ECHO's Heritage Consultancy service we can provide guidance on all matters relating to cultural heritage management.
Through our website we aim to not only update you on all matters relating to the current issues affecting Egyptian cultural heritage, but also to provide a service enabling you to obtain a range of information of relevance to Egyptian cultural heritage; including legal documentation, and links to other organisations working towards the preservation of Egypt's cultural heritage.
What You Can Do
Although ECHO has created fund raising activities, money and resources are still required to fulfil the objectives and make archaeology really work to protect Egypt's cultural heritage. To continue the work laid out in the Objectives and Current Projects, ECHO needs sponsors and donations. Monetary donations are not the only means of supporting ECHO, products and skills are much needed and can be put to good use. ECHO is also looking to increase its membership.
