ALARGAN ex­tends sup­port to INJAZ for 11th con­sec­u­tive year

Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

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.”
