who we are?
Kemet Boutros Ghali Foundation for Peace and Knowledge (KBG) was established in 2018 by a group of prominent figures of culture and diplomacy. We, at KBG, seek to build on the legacy of Dr. Boutros Boutros Ghali (1922-2016) and we aim to continue and promote his core beliefs of dialogue, free access to information as well as peace and knowledge with an emphasis on Egyptian heritage and how it is reflected in Egypt's present strategic importance in the heart of the region and in the world at large.
Our vision rests on the full enjoyment of each human being of his/her cultural rights as guaranteed by International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and the Egyptian Constitution of 2014. KBG is committed to working with the state to ensure that Egyptians enjoy all cultural rights without discrimination based on age gender, geographic location, religion, financial capacity, or any other ground. Special attention is given to remote areas and most vulnerable groups
Our mission is derived from our name. Kemet is the fertile land of Egypt, a multi-layered civilization that is as old as time and even as wise. The essence of Kemet lies in the way we have always celebrated our multicultural layers of civilization. This celebration can only be manifested through peace and knowledge:
Peace within the Family, Peace with nature and honouring it and peace within our-selves for acquiring self -knowledge is unlocking the gate to endless possibilities.
Knowledge is our legacy. Our ancestors excelled in art, medicine, science, architecture astronomy, and holistic medicine. Our aim is to revisit such knowledge and safeguard the intangible heritage that is very much alive and in tune with our daily lives. With free flow of knowledge we can build on our legacy
In pursuing our mission and committed to advancing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we, at KBG, strongly believe in peace and harmony, transparency and ethics, protection and promotion of cultural rights and cultural diversity, dialogue and tolerance, equality, inclusion and non-discrimination of age, race, religion, color, gender and disability.
