Zabatak is a non-profit initiative led by group of young people that aim to fight corruption and to make Egypt safe and free from bribery and corruption. Politically unaffiliated and having no specific political orientation, Zabatak was established to gather information about criminal, corrupt or semi-legal activities that could be useful to the ordinary citizen. It has already become a reliable center of news. Zabatak also carries potential for further development.
