I'm a member of the Egyptian IOI 2022 team, and I'm not sure yet if we are going to IOI. Historically, the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (MCIT) sponsored the Egyptian team to travel to IOI. However, this year, there is no confirmation from the MCIT's side at all. Our tickets are not booked until now, and MCIT doesn't either confirm or deny that they will sponsor us this year.
Now, there are fewer tickets left, and the cost of traveling increases as we approach IOI. We all have been practicing really hard for IOI for the past few months. Now, there is very little time for us to make alternative plans to participate onsite.
Note that MCIT provides training and sponsors the team every year so we expected more from the MCIT side. AASTMT has supported us with a part of ticket expenses
In an attempt to collect the remaining part, we created a crowdfunding campaign. Please donate here.
UPD: We've reached the crowdfunding campaign goal. Thanks to CF community.
