DOHA: Minister of Education and Higher Education H E Abdul Wahed Ali Al Hammadi and Sheikha Hanadi bint Nasser Al Thani, Founding Chair, INJAZ Qatar and Chair of INJAZ Al Arab, have distributed certificates and gifts of appreciation to school and university representatives and corporate volunteers who have dedicated their time and energy to bringing INJAZ programs to students.

Non-profit youth-centred organisation “INJAZ Qatar” hosted an annual appreciation lunch to honour education partners who have supported its programs for 2017-18 academic year, said a statement.

INJAZ Qatar offers programs at schools, youth centres, colleges and universities across Qatar in support of the National Vision 2030. With the help of contributors and volunteers from the community, it provides youth with learning models, skills, practical entrepreneurship experience and advice to unlock talent and inspire creativity for a sustainable future.

Sheikha Hanadi appreciated the sponsors, volunteers, university presidents, school principals, Ministry of Education and Higher Education representatives, INJAZ board members, and other local stakeholders invested in student learning in Qatar for their ongoing commitment to INJAZ Qatar’s work.

She said that with their participation and the contribution of over 2,000 volunteers and 85 corporate partners, more than 51,000 students and 80 schools and universities have taken part in the organisation’s programs during its 11 years of operation.

“I am grateful for the tremendous support we have received since founding INJAZ Qatar from key education partners who are here today. Your involvement as individuals, corporations and organisations has been enthusiastic from the very top down all the way through, and we wouldn’t be where we are today without it and without the full and continuous support of the Ministry of Education and Higher Education” said Sheikha Hanadi.

Fawzia Al Khater, Assistant Undersecretary for Educational Affairs at the Ministry of Education and Higher Education said: “We are proud of our partnership with INJAZ Qatar, which inspired our students and enhanced their economic capabilities and expertise.”

“We at ExxonMobil are very proud of the partnership we share with INJAZ Qatar,” stated Alistair Routledge, President and General Manager for ExxonMobil Qatar.
