Marwa Elbadawy, a Mechatronics Engineering student, is the visionary founder of Wessal club at Nile University. Originally a student club at her previous school, Marwa felt a strong desire to continue making a positive impact and sought permission from the co-founders of Wesal to establish it at NU .
Her goal was to inspire students to engage in acts of kindness and giving on a daily basis. Having started her journey in high school, Marwa recognized the need for a charity club at university that would instill in students the values of giving and the significance of making a difference in the community.
Although initially faced with challenges in capturing students' attention, as charity work often did not elicit much excitement, Marwa displayed remarkable perseverance, patience, and resilience. Through her unwavering dedication, Marwa was able to generate interest and build a vibrant community of compassionate individuals under the umbrella of WesalNU. Her unwavering drive to encourage students to give back and make a positive impact has transformed WesalNU into a beacon of charity and a platform for charitable endeavors.
