Manama, March 6, 2012
inJAz Bahrain, a non-profit organisation which aims to inspire and prepare young Bahrainis to succeed in a global economy, recently organised a special luncheon in recognition of the ongoing collaboration with the Ministry of Education.
The event honoured educators and Ministry of Education officials and coordinating members who are actively involved in the organization’s programmes, and was attended by Shaikha Hessa Bint Khalifa AlKhalifa, executive director of inJAz Bahrain, Nasser AlSheikh, Undersecretary for General and Technical Education at the Ministry of Education and inJAz Bahrain board members.
Certificates of appreciation were distributed to all participating teachers and schools. Trophies were also handed out to most outstanding schools and teachers.
“We are meeting with you today to express our sincere appreciation to all schools and in person all teachers who have contributed to the success of inJAz Bahrain,” said Shaikha Hessa.
“The learnings gained from our programs would not be as comprehensive and fulfilling without the joint involvement of teachers and our volunteers. It is the partnership that inJAz Bahrain adopts in achieving its goals that paves the way for its prosperity, sustainability and growth, and we hope to continue this fruitful alliance moving forward.”
Nasser AlSheikh also addressed the audience by thanking inJAz Bahrain for offering students the opportunity to learn how the economy works, acquire the work-readiness skills, concepts and know-how to be successful in the workplace and be exposed to the real work environment through the mentorship and internship opportunities and programs offered by the organisation in partnership with the private sector entities to enrich the students’ learning experience.
ARahman Jawahry, inJAz Bahrain chairman thanked the MoE for working in partnership with inJAz Bahrain in helping young Bahrainis become work-ready for the marketplace.
“inJAz Bahrain is an ideal and unique venue for public-private partnership, as it provides a national platform for business people to use their experience, insights and knowledge to motivate and mentor students to succeed both in school and life,” he added.
The event also contained a slideshow demonstrating the progress made to date by inJAz Bahrain. More than 35,000 students in 33 secondary schools and 30 intermediate schools have taken part in the organisation’s programs, mentored by a group of 1,346 volunteers in partnership with teachers.
Now in its sixth year, inJAz Bahrain earlier announced that is intensifying its school outreach for the academic year 2011/2012, with a total of 13,632 students targeted for its programmes, compared to 9,200 students the year prior. – TradeArabia News Service
