Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

Oore­doo Kuwait, a mem­ber of in­ter­na­tional Oore­doo Group, has re­cently an­nounced re­new­ing its spon­sor­ship of the Proteges youth de­vel­op­ment pro­gram in its sev­enth sea­son. The unique pro­gram, which fo­cuses on de­vel­op­ing and train­ing a co­hort of 25 stu­dents be­tween the ages of 16 - 24, will in­clude a trip to the Euro­pean cities of Prague and Ber­lin.

Com­ment­ing on the spon­sor­ship, Oore­doo Kuwait’s Cor­po­rate Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Se­nior Di­rec­tor Mi­j­bil AlAy­oub said: “We are proud of our part­ner­ship with the Proteges for a sec­ond con­sec­u­tive year. The pro­gram fo­cuses on a num­ber of core val­ues and skills such as tol­er­ance, crit­i­cal think­ing, and cre­ativ­ity, which are im­por­tant as­sets in cre­at­ing fu­ture lead­ers. It has achieved un­par­al­leled suc­cess through­out the years, and we look for­ward to meet­ing the grad­u­ates of 7th gen­er­a­tion of the Proteges.”

Ay­oub also re­it­er­ated that Oore­doo is keen on sup­port­ing ini­tia­tives aimed at youth de­vel­op­ment, and em­pha­sized on the im­por­tance of the part­ner­ship with var­i­ous state sec­tors to ac­com­plish this tar­get. Eman Al-Rasheed, Ex­ec­u­tive Man­ager of the Proteges ex­pressed her pride in part­ner­ing with Oore­doo for a sec­ond con­sec­u­tive year, which only un­der­scored the val­ues of Oore­doo Kuwait that are in align­ment with the pro­gram’s aim - sup­port­ing youth and pro­vid­ing them with skills that cre­ate unique lead­ers. “We look for­ward for more part­ner­ships and sup­port in cre­at­ing a more aware gen­er­a­tion of young in­no­va­tive and cre­ative thinkers,” she added.

The Proteges pro­gram was launched in 2010 to men­tor youth be­tween the age of 16 and 24 by lo­cal iconic fig­ures in dif­fer­ent fields.
