Injaz extends programs to primary schools
Manama, October 11, 2012
Injaz Bahrain, a non-profit organization which aims to inspire and prepare young Bahrainis to succeed in a global economy, has extended its programs to primary schools in Bahrain for the first time, starting from the current academic year 2012-2013.
This step followed the successful implementation of Injaz Bahrain’s programs in all secondary schools and 80 per cent of intermediate schools.
As part of this expanded outreach, Injaz Bahrain also introduced a new program called “Our Families” which caters specifically to primary schools.
Through interactive activities, students will learn about the roles people play in the local economy and various basic personal and business skills needed to succeed in the business world.
It is expected that 3,532 primary school students will benefit from the programmes during the first year.
Also for the first time, volunteers from the university level will administer the programs. The students will deliver the programs in the primary schools in partnership with school teachers from the participating schools, all of whom have been trained by Injaz Bahrain.
Commenting on the development, Sheikha Hessa Bint Khalifa Al Khalifa, the executive director, said, “Extending our programs into primary school opens up a new and exciting prospect for us. Not only will the students learn basic business skills from a very young age, but we also believe it will be an equally valuable experience for our volunteer university students as well.”
In total, Injaz Bahrain expects to reach 17,532 students across all levels during the current academic year - an increase of 22 per cent over the previous year.
To date, the organization has reached out to 32,926 students, and targets adding 39,332 more students to this total by the end of the 2013-2014 academic year.-TradeArabia News Service
