 Our grandmothers got used to make bread and raise birds at home, and there was a kind of self-sufficiency in our homes, especially rural ones. Also, homes in the cities used to make bread and raise poultry and birds. They benefited from their eggs and meat... and did not suffer from high prices.

A wonderful initiative launched by the National Alliance for Civil and Development Work along with the Abu Al-Enein Foundation for Cultural and Social Work, it is the "Set El Setat" initiative aiming to teach women how to make bread with its different types.

Recently, the government raised the price of a loaf of bread after the problem worsened its cost is much more than its price. It is sold for 5 piasters per loaf, while its cost is one and a quarter pound. Some people are criticizing, placing the burden on the government and forgetting that we have a role in reducing the burden. Our real role is to raise awareness of the importance of achieving self-sufficiency in the production and manufacture of goods, especially in a basic commodity such as bread, which is indispensable in any home, firstly, due to its benefits as it contains protein, fiber, and minerals. Many experiments conducted on ready-made and home-made bread have proven that home-made bread comes first in terms of the benefits it enjoys, it is cheaper and much cleaner than the ready-made one. In our Egyptian homes, bread is the basis of any meal of the day, because it has many benefits for the body, and it can be obtained in different forms from private bakeries, but preparing it at home has a special pleasure and taste, and at a much lower cost.

In my opinion, the initiative to teach women to make all kinds of bread, is bringing this industry back to Egyptian homes. Even homes in the cities had a pot called the bread pot, in which bread was made to be served fresh, clean and cheap to the family Buying bread may be easier and faster, but it certainly does not guarantee the level of quality, cleanliness, and cheap price. Making it at home ensures that it is always fresh, healthy, and delicious.

I am pleased with the initiative of the National Alliance for Civil and Development Action, and I hope that it will be repeated permanently and that all social institutions will support it.

Such initiatives require the solidarity of the entire society for the health of our children and the rationalization of consumption. I hope that this initiative will be followed by small projects for making bread and raising poultry until food security is achieved in every home.

I appreciate this initiative and I hope to see it in every Egyptian home.
