Oeuvre de la Goutte de Lait, Cairo, Egypt

Notes from google earth layer:


-Taught French
-Gave children from the hara a good education
-Mechanism for upward mobility, especially for the girls. This was so because the girls would often be hired to work for the big department stores (most of which were also owned by Jews) for the French skills and their social graces. The richer boys would end up "falling for them", marrying them, and thus breaking class barriers.
-Rue Soliman Pacha, renamed Tal'at Harb


-Sarah Mangoubi was second to last principal of the school


-Today Madrasat Talat Harb al-Thanawiya?
