ALARGAN extends support to INJAZ for 11th consecutive year
ALARGAN International Real Estate Company announced that it has renewed its support to the non-profit youth education organization INJAZ Kuwait for the 11th consecutive year, committing to the knowledge and skills development of university and high school students as part of its responsibility to engage future professionals who will drive Kuwait’s growth.
Over the previous 10 years, the Company has supported and volunteered in four of INJAZ’s key programs, namely the Job Shadow, Career Success, Entrepreneurship Masterclass and Innovation Camp, which are all educational programs on entrepreneurial and leadership skills aimed at inspiring and educating future generations.
ALARGAN team members volunteer in delivering these programs at the company’s headquarters in Kuwait. In the 2015/2016 academic year, the number of ALARGAN volunteers increased to 26, including the Company’s CEO and Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors Engineer Khaled Al-Meshaan, and Chief Business Development Officer Meshaan AlMeshaan. During the same year, the Company hosted over 136 students from Kuwait University, the Australian College of Kuwait, the New English School, and the Canadian Bilingual School.
Khaled Al-Meshaan said: “Our business motto is interlinked with our wellbeing vision for our communities. We believe in the importance of sustainable development to support an economically and socially viable urban environment. In reaching our aim, we also need to invest and share our knowledge with younger generations to whom we will pass on the torch of building a sustainable society.”
Launching the 2016/2017 academic year, ALARGAN hosted students from the American Creativity Academy Girls’ Campus in the Career Success program. Company engineers presented fundamentals in engineering and design, and focused on the necessity of developing green buildings. The program concluded with a tour of ALARGAN’s headquarters, the only building in Kuwait to be accredited Platinum ranking, the highest ranking, in the Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) program awarded by the US Green Building Council (USGBC).
Al-Meshaan added: “It is never too early to introduce our young students into the challenges we see today and share the solutions we are bringing each day. We have a responsibility towards providing them with a world where they can grow, and a world they can sustain as well. We hope to have inspired many of these young ambitious students into a career in engineering and sustainable development in the near future.”
