Travelling in itself is a nourishing experience, but mixed with volunteering, it has so many great effects in exploring other environments. Mahmoud Abd ElMegeed lists the major benefits of volunteering abroad including admiring new cultures, experiencing new living circumstances; in addition to raising responsibility of normal people towards what other countries might be facing.

السفر كسائح تجربة فريدة من نوعها ولكن السفر كمتطوع -كما يقول محمود عبد المجيد- له الكثير من الفوائد منها اكتشاف ثقافات جديدة ورفع المسؤولية تجاه ما تمر به البلاد الاخرى.

Mahmoud Abd ElMegeed founded "Have a Dream" NGO in 2013 to spread the spirit of volunteer traveling and provide potential volunteering opportunities for Egyptian youth to volunteer abroad within international and local organizations.

محمود عبدالمجيد أسس مؤسسة تطوعية يعطي مجالات للشباب داخل مصر للتطوع خارجها في مؤسسات خيرية عالمية ومحلية.
