Bahrain Airport Company has committed to providing volunteers to Injaz Bahrain, a non-profit youth empowerment organisation.
Bahrain Airport Company (BAC), the operator and managing body of Bahrain International Airport (BIA), has signed a two-year Memorandum of Understanding with Injaz Bahrain. Under its terms, BAC will provide 20 of its employees as volunteers for Injaz programmes.
The agreement was signed by BAC chief executive officer, Mohamed Yousif Al Binfalah, and Injaz Bahrain executive director, Hana Sarwani, in the presence of officials from both parties.
Al Binfalah said, “BAC is committed to fostering a strong voluntary work culture among its team and contributing to the development of young talent. This agreement will not only help nurture the staff’s sense of compassion but will also allow them to actively contribute to the betterment of our nation by leading some of Injaz Bahrain’s valuable training activities.”
BAC will select ten volunteers per academic year for a period of two years, with Injaz Bahrain providing them with training prior to their enrolment in selected programmes and schools. Once a year, BAC will organise a day for young people involved with Injaz Bahrain to shadow its employees at their places of work, giving them exposure to various aspects of the aviation industry.
Her Highness Sheikha Hessa Bint Khalifa Al Khalifa, Injaz Bahrain chairperson, said, “Injaz Bahrain is proud to partner with Bahrain Airport Company. This partnership will see Bahrain’s youth continue to upskill and innovate, as they gain exposure to different industries and entities as part of their professional journey, which is a commitment of Injaz Bahrain’s.”
Established in 2005, INJAZ Bahrain is part of Junior Achievement Worldwide. With the support of its partners and volunteers, it helps thousands of students every year.
