Egypt is rich in a cultural heritage that can be traced from the remote prehistoric past to the various stages of world civilisation. Ancient Egypt's monuments link us to the past and make us aware of past human achievements. It is our duty to protect and preserve this heritage so that we, and future generations, can share in this historical legacy of our predecessors.

ECHO Units
ECHO has established specialist units to deal with the running of it's various activities and in furtherance of it's objectives. These special units are:
ECHO Publications ECHO Tours ECHO Projects & Events

What You Can Do
Although ECHO has created fund raising activities, money and resources are still required to fulfil the objectives and make archaeology really work to protect Egypt's cultural heritage. To continue the work laid out in the Objectives and Current Projects, ECHO needs sponsors and donations. Monetary donations are not the only means of supporting ECHO, products and skills are much needed and can be put to good use. ECHO is also looking to increase its membership.
