Our patron is Prof. Dr. Bernhard Vogel

In October 2015 Prof. Dr. Bernhard Vogel, Prime Minister of the region Rheinland-Pfalz  and the State of Thuringia became a patron of the Rahn Schulen Kairo 

"I admire the initiative and the courage of Rahn Education to stabilize the country of Egypt and to strengthen the German-Egyptian relations. With the patronage I want to support this commitment "expressed Prof. Vogel his motivation for this step. Gotthard Dittrich is very happy about this development for Rahn Schulen Kairo: "We are proud and joyful satisfied that a personality of political life as the chairman of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation, Prof. Dr. Bernhard Vogel is on our side which supports our goal of developing a free, non-profit, independent German school abroad.


The contact between Rahn Education and Prof. Vogel has existed since 2007, which is the year of founding Primary School in Altenburg, where Prof. Vogel is a patron from the very first day. In 2014, Prof. Vogel visited the campus in Neuzelle and held there his speech at the graduation ceremony. During this visit, he already could provide detailed information on the international orientation of Rahn Education.

The idea of patronage for Rahn Schulen Kairo was born during the conversation between Sameh Elmahmoudy (board member of the European Foundation of Rahn Education for Education and Culture), Gotthard Dittrich (CEO) and Prof. Vogel.

In March 2016 Prof. Vogel visited Rahn Schulen Kairo for the first time. The students showed him with great pleasure their school and prepared a patronage ceremony.
