Ooredoo signs memorandum with Kuwait International Law School
Ooredoo, the fastest network in Kuwait in 2016, signed a memorandum of understanding with the Kuwait International Law School last week. The signing ceremony was attended by Ooredoo CEO and General Manager Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Thani, and the Dean of Kuwait International Law School Dr Mohammed Al-Moqatei. The ceremony was also attended by Chief Corporate Legal and Regulatory Affairs Officer Dr Yousef Al-Sellili, Corporate Communications Senior Director Mijbil Alayoub, CSR, Sponsorship and Social Media Senior Manager Yousef Al-Shallal, Director of Legal Affairs Tamer AlShershaby, and Legal Advisor Othman AlFarhan.
Commenting on this joint initiative, Ooredoo CEO and General Manager Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Thani said: “We’re eager to join hands with a reputable organization such as the Kuwait International Law School. We at Ooredoo Kuwait are invested in youth and are proud to take part in their academic future. Through this program, we hope to expose students to the challenges of working in the dynamic private sector, especially in the telecom industry which is one of the most fast-paced sectors. We believe in investing in youth, because the future of this country is built with their hands.”
The Dean of Kuwait International Law School Dr Mohammed Al-Moqatei on his part lauded the initiative of Ooredoo, and commended their participation in supporting youth through their varied sponsorships and partnerships.
The memorandum of understanding between the two entities gives Kuwait International Law School students the opportunity to intern at Ooredoo Kuwait and get exposed to the various functions fulfilled by different departments across the organization. High-scoring students can also get an opportunity to intern in some of Ooredoo Group’s operating companies outside Kuwait.
Empowering youth is among Ooredoo’s top priorities through its CSR strategy. The company has recently signed a memorandum of understanding with the Ministry of State for Youth Affairs, to support youth projects and initiatives. Ooredoo is continuously working with the Ministry to enrich youth experience in a variety of fields, with a focus on volunteerism.
