About Us

C.O.P.T.S. Inc. was established in 1986 in Sydney by a group of good Samaritans, who felt for the poor and the needy in Egypt as well as in Australia, Africa and Thailand.
With all volunteers and no administration costs, COPTS delivers 100% of all funds raised to those who need it most – and has done so for over 30 years. COPTS provides vital assistance to poor communities through job creation programs, family planning, medical care and education. COPTS cooperates with various Coptic charitable organisations and our work extends to both local and overseas charity work. The Board of the organisation comprises both experienced and young volunteers, who work towards achieving its goals.

COPTS’ mission is to serve the neediest people in Egypt and beyond, to relieve their suffering and to transform their lives.
We aim to:
• make a real lasting difference to the lives of those living in poverty through the provision of quality education, shelter and healthcare
• efficiently respond to the urgent needs of orphans and vulnerable children by ensuring they receive a formal education through payment of school fees and provision of other scholastic materials such as school uniforms and stationery
• equip small villages with safe drinking water as well as hygienic sanitation
• collaborate with other organisations and development partners who we work with
• achieve equity and gender equality in Egypt
• enable marginalized communities to participate in their own development through support and empowerment.

COPTS is committed to serving as many disadvantaged people as possible to give them a brighter future.
