Project Azraq

PROJECT AZRAQ
Protect the Future

In 2018 in a small old fishing town, two young women’s worlds came together. Both individually had a dream of protecting the natural world so both left their city homes and loved ones in order to do so. Both had a fierce determination which would bond them and keep them going until they achieved their goal. It was inevitable that these two young women would join forces and embark on the wonderful and challenging journey known as Project Azraq. A project built on passion, love and hope for a better world.

Not only did they have the passion and drive but both had very different training backgrounds which together made a perfect team. Amy had graduated with a degree in Human Geography and believed strongly in reducing the impact humans have on nature in order to not only protect nature but to ensure the longevity of global communities facing severe impacts of climate change. Nouran was a marine biologist and was fascinated by the natural world and grew keen on spreading the importance of understanding these  ecosystems in order to make inferences to protect them. Alongside other skills they had both developed throughout life they are now able to bring their expertise together to cover all aspects of the quadruple bottom line people, profit, planet & purpose.

Protecting the future of the ocean through:
Marine Education
Marine Education

To educate and spread awareness of the tropical reef importance.

Reef Monitoring

To collect & preserve data of the Red Sea ecosystem for the scientific community.

Dive Agains Debris
Dive Against Debris

To generate a change and reduce the amount of debris in our ocean.

Meaning of Azraq?

The name of the project is the Arabic translation for blue. We believe it was essential that the project is immersed in its origins and reflects its heritage. We wanted the project to represent the country it was founded in and the place which inspired it. However, we also want the project to speak to as many people as possible and therefore combining English and Arabic seemed like the perfect match for our name.

DAHAB
Our home

Dahab means gold in Arabic and this will make so much sense to you if you ever visit. It truly is a gem nestled between the awe-inspiring Sinai mountains and the wondrous Red Sea.

There are very few people who can resist its allure and even fewer who leave without the promise of returning. Some people call it the Siren and others attribute it to Dahab’s beauty.

Formerly a Bedouin fishing village, Dahab is now considered to be one of the world’s most treasured diving destinations. The waters of the Red Sea are home to a unique and astonishing array of marine organisms. The region is famous for its clear waters and vibrant corals alongside a vast array of endemic coral reef species.

FACILITIES
The Finest in Dahab

Project Azraq’s collaborate with the finest facilities in Dahab.

Dahab is a famous scuba dive destination, as a result great quality dive centres are based in our city, with prime equipment and awesome dive professionals. We have experience working as freelance divers in several dive centres in Dahab and around the world and it never stops surprising us the high standards held in our city compared with other top dive destinations.

Dahab is also a freediving Meca and we did not want to leave behind a full part of our town that also has devoted their lives and hearts to the Red Sea.

We aim to collaborate with as many of them as possible in Dahab, therefore we consider our home is not only in our base but is in all the great facilities that run our program.

Project Azraq will like to give an special thank to Pathways that through their donations had made possible the rent of the classroom at Blue Beach for our presentations.
