Did you ever think of the “other”? Did you ever take a deeper look on the impact of an unpleasing school uniform on students of elementary stage? Did you ever look-back at your well assembled and representable school uniform, thinking of it as a god-gift? Students of governmental schools are volatile in choosing any of their educational subsidies; they are helpless when it comes to their educational paths, curriculum, subjects, number of students in their classes, or even their daily uniform. Consequently, Zayyen project was initiated. Zayyen portrayed this volatility of the governmental school students, inspected one of the current problems, and transformed this fragility into a positive voltage power. It mastered the tactics of design to tackle one of the current problems of those students, the school uniform. Zayyen aims to give those unprivileged children, of elementary school, a cheerful and motivational influence through revamping their daily companion, by choosing the adequate fabrics that could produce a uniform that embraces both decency and practicality. Zayyen’s mission is to provide quality, style, convenience, and safety that reflect on the student’s preferences, and the education system in Egypt through the use of finished textiles. This project aims to strengthen the rights of those deprived children, by granting them a basic right as a sustainable and fashionable uniform, that could enhance their civic engagement and restructure their sense of belonging to their meager schools.
