GUC Graduates designing the World Youth Forum 2018 Attendees’ Bags

The two GUC graduates, Yara Yassin & Rania Elrafie left their mark in the World Youth Forum 2018 in Sharm el-Sheikh by designing their signature eco-friendly Up-fuse gift bags for the forum’s attendees. Not only do they excel with their genuine designs, but they are unmatched also with their merging between sustainable products and abiding by social responsibility aspects. Socially, Up-fuse makes positive change by recycling wastes and providing people in need with work opportunities. The bags are sustainably produced in an in-house workshop by talented local sewers whom Up-fuse constantly work with to develop and improve products and designs. Behind each product stand a line of stakeholders; namely garbage collectors, artisans, designers, sewers are all part of Up-fuses’ local production. Up-fuse teaches youth and women the upcycling technique as a craft to help them generate income for their families. Part of the revenue goes back to Mansheyet Naser community to support their activities in providing education and health awareness.
