The education ministry said that more than one million students have paid their school fees through the Fawry e-payment system since the service was activated.
Mohamed Omar, deputy minister of education and technical education for teachers' affairs, said that Fawry was selected because it offers the easiest payment methods, since its service is accessible 24 hours a day and seven days a week, and is available in “every street in all of Egypt governorates.”
Omar said that alongside the 105,000 physical Fawry outlets, parents and students can also pay the fees through all bank e-wallets, through mobile phones, and through the “MyFawry” application.
Mohamed Okasha, managing director of Fawry, said that the partnership with the ministry is a continuation of Fawry's plan to provide all government services electronically, and to back the government's plans to support financial inclusion.
Earlier this year, Education Minister Tarek Shawki announced that school fees would be paid through either Fawry or via the account of the Fund for Supporting and Financing Educational Projects at the Egyptian post office.
According to the ministry, school fees for the 2019/2020 school year are EGP 145 for kindergarten, EGP 160 for primary, EGP 150 for preparatory, EPG 190 for secondary, and EGP 170 for secondary technical schools. Fawry’s service fees are EGP 3.
