The Egyptian Streets Podcast is BACK! Season 2 focuses on Egyptian women: QAHIRAT. The Egyptian woman is multi-faceted, creative and absolutely powerful. Egyptian Streets is bringing you stories of 10 Egyptian women, from Cairo and the world.

The second of our 10 Qahirat is Yara Yassin, the co-founder of Up-fuse, a Cairo-based social enterprise that promotes a sustainable and eco-conscious lifestyle through bags and accessories made from recycled plastic. She shares how she got started, what the journey has been like from university to where Up-fuse has reached today, her first bag sale, and Up-fuse’s plans for the future.
