Kuwait Times - - FROM THE ARABIC PRESS -

Zain, the lead­ing telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions com­pany in Kuwait, an­nounced its Plat­inum spon­sor­ship of the 33rd an­nual con­fer­ence of the Na­tional Union of Kuwaiti Stu­dents in the United States (NUKS USA), which is set to be held from the 24th - 26th Novem­ber 2016 in San Fran­cisco, Cal­i­for­nia, un­der the pa­tron­age of HE the Min­is­ter of Ed­u­ca­tion and Min­is­ter of Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Dr Bader Al-Essa and the at­ten­dance of the Kuwaiti Am­bas­sador to the US Sheikh Salem Ab­dul­lah Al-Jaber Al-Sabah.

Zain ex­pressed its pride in be­ing the main sup­porter of this na­tional event for 13 con­sec­u­tive years, as it is con­sid­ered the largest gath­er­ing of Kuwaiti stu­dents abroad. The com­pany’s sup­port comes in line with its Cor­po­rate Sus­tain­abil­ity and So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity strat­egy to­wards the youth and ed­u­ca­tion sec­tors and its be­lief in the im­por­tance of con­nect­ing with the coun­try’s youth abroad.

Each year, Zain con­trib­utes to the event by or­ga­niz­ing and par­tic­i­pat­ing in a num­ber of cul­tural and sport­ing ac­tiv­i­ties. Zain Kuwait’s Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer Ea­man Al-Roud­han will be par­tic­i­pat­ing in a dis­cus­sion panel along­side a num­ber of prom­i­nent lo­cal lead­ers. Ad­di­tion­ally, the com­pany will rec­og­nize and honor the top per­form­ing Kuwaiti stu­dents study­ing in the US.

Dur­ing this year’s con­fer­ence, Zain will also spon­sor the sports dis­cus­sion panel that will fea­ture prom­i­nent Kuwaiti sports fig­ures as well as or­ga­nize the an­nual stu­dents foot­ball tour­na­ment.

The com­pany will also par­tic­i­pate in the event’s ca­reers fair through its own booth to of­fer stu­dents ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties and share its lead­ing ex­pe­ri­ence in the tele­com sec­tor.

Zain’s pres­ence in the event con­veys its en­thu­si­asm to in­ter­act with the fu­ture gen­er­a­tions of Kuwaiti youth, es­pe­cially those who pur­sue their ed­u­ca­tion abroad, as the NUKS USA con­fer­ence is one of the largest gath­er­ings of Kuwaiti stu­dents out­side of Kuwait. The dis­tinc­tive event ap­peals to stu­dents on both an in­tel­lec­tual and so­cial level and it serves as an open fo­rum for them to ex­change opin­ions and views re­gard­ing im­por­tant do­mes­tic is­sues with the pres­ence of dis­tin­guished fig­ures from the Kuwaiti so­ci­ety.

Zain sees its an­nual par­tic­i­pa­tion in the con­fer­ence as part of its re­spon­si­bil­ity as a lead­ing na­tional com­pany to help pro­vide bright and en­thu­si­as­tic young Kuwaitis who are look­ing to en­ter the job mar­ket with suit­able ca­reer de­vel­op­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Par­tic­i­pat­ing in this event af­firms Zain’s role as a lead­ing na­tional com­pany that takes the de­vel­op­ment of young peo­ple se­ri­ously, with the ul­ti­mate in­ten­tion to in­duce pos­i­tive change within the Kuwaiti so­ci­ety.
