After the world economic crisis, many problems had been emerged to the surface of discussions, such as:

lack of good education, the absence of workers with high quality, the rise of marginalized people number, the increase of slumps and informalities, weak health services and the spread of diseases and viruses, besides the societal crisis such as the rise of crime ratio, unemployment and terrorism.

Besides all of the aforementioned influencing factors, there are other problems that concern elderly people, and handicapped. Elderly people do not find suitable services that fit their health and psychological needs. On the other hand, handicapped are neglected and do not find sophisticated tools nor services to develop their abilities. Considering the type and degree of the disability, disabled can be empowered and supported with the required tools in order to demonstrate an active and productive role in the society.

From what is proposed, Egyptian society suffers of some ills which can be classified into main and major problems:
