The first association started operating in Egypt in 1821 under the name: The Greek association in Alexandria. Through history, society associations passed by several phases, changes and amendments. Due to domestic and/or foreign immigration, associations that serve specific communities used to be founded in big cities, where there are several communities and groups of people living together.
