KUWAIT: In­jaz Kuwait cel­e­brated In­ter­na­tional Vol­un­teer Day by honor­ing the vol­un­teers of its ‘In­jaz Su­per­hero 2016’ cam­paign for their ef­forts in mak­ing sig­nif­i­cant changes in youth’s lives. The cel­e­bra­tion was held yes­ter­day at the 360 Mall, and was at­tended by mem­bers of In­jaz Kuwait, en­trepreneurs and vol­un­teers who grad­u­ated from In­jaz, strate­gic part­ners, spon­sors, and me­dia. The re­cently launched vol­un­teer­ing cam­paign in­vited pro­fes­sional young peo­ple with an ex­pe­ri­ence of two to fifteen years in any pro­fes­sion to ex­change their ex­pe­ri­ence and knowl­edge with stu­dents. The cel­e­bra­tion in­cluded dif­fer­ent ac­tiv­i­ties, and there was a 3D model dis­play­ing all the schools and uni­ver­si­ties that the vol­un­teers vis­ited. All ‘su­per­heroes’ clicked pic­tures to post it on dif­fer­ent so­cial me­dia.

Fur­ther­more, the ‘In­jaz su­per­heroes’ ex­changed their ex­pe­ri­ences with the po­ten­tial vol­un­teers, who also re­ceived a su­per­hero head­gear through their reg­is­tra­tion in In­jaz pro­gram, which were ex­hib­ited on the ro­tat­ing wall at the event. In ad­di­tion, all the at­ten­dees re­ceived ‘su­per­hero stick­ers’ for their cell phones which read ‘I’m the In­jaz Su­per­hero’, es­pe­cially de­signed for the he­roes.

On this oc­ca­sion, Rana Al-Nibari, CEO In­jaz Kuwait noted that the main val­ues of In­jaz Kuwait al­ways fo­cused on em­pow­er­ing the youth and de­vel­op­ing them through part­ner­ship with both the pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tors. “The vol­un­teers are the main pil­lars of the In­jaz pro­gram. Their ex­pe­ri­ences will al­low the stu­dents to dis­cover the na­ture of ev­ery job, and will help them to suc­cess­fully choose their ca­reer. Also, the stu­dents will be ca­pa­ble to pre­dict the ex­pec­ta­tions and dif­fi­cul­ties that they will face in their fu­ture, and they will know how to face those chal­lenges, thus mak­ing ev­ery vol­un­teer a su­per­hero,” she added.

The con­tin­u­ous par­tic­i­pa­tion and spon­sor­ship of the com­pa­nies and spon­sors have made them part­ners of In­jaz. “In­jaz be­lieves in the im­por­tance of in­vest­ing in the fu­ture of Kuwait and em­pow­er­ing the youth to suc­ceed in their ca­reer and busi­ness. The vol­un­teers who in­vest their time in train­ing, the univer­sity and school stu­dents have made this pos­si­ble,” added Nibari.

Nibari also thanked all spon­sors in­clud­ing pri­vate com­pa­nies and pub­lic in­sti­tu­tions who made this vol­un­teer­ing cam­paign suc­cess­ful in par­tic­u­lar, and the ed­u­ca­tional pro­grams of In­jaz in gen­eral. “With­out your sup­port, we would not be able to make this project a great suc­cess,” she con­cluded. In­jaz is pro­vid­ing its pro­grams dur­ing the 201617 aca­demic year with dif­fer­ent ways of par­tic­i­pa­tion. In­ter­ested vol­un­teers can con­tact In­jaz through their email: su­per­hero@in­jaz-kuwait.org. They can also fol­low In­jaz on In­sta­gram @In­jaz_kuwait.
