ABK ef­forts in lo­cal youth de­vel­op­ment rec­og­nized

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

In light of its on-go­ing sup­port to the de­vel­op­ment of Kuwait’s youth, Al-Ahli Bank of Kuwait (ABK) was re­cently hon­ored by the Man­power and Gov­ern­ment Re­struc­tur­ing Pro­gram (MGRP) for the vi­tal role it plays in de­vel­op­ing the skills of Kuwait’s youth pop­u­la­tion. The cer­e­mony was held on Au­gust 2, 2017 at the MGRP premises.

The award was re­ceived by rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the Learn­ing and De­vel­op­ment team at ABK who con­veyed grat­i­tude to MGRP and re­it­er­ated the im­por­tance of work­ing closely to help ful­fill the com­mon goal of sup­port­ing the youth of Kuwait and pre­par­ing to­mor­row’s lead­ers to take the na­tion for­ward on a lo­cal, re­gional and ul­ti­mately, global level. ABK has been col­lab­o­rat­ing with MGRP to con­duct its an­nual sum­mer in­tern­ship pro­gram since 2014, which tar­gets young Kuwaiti uni­ver­sity and col­lege stu­dents, through the ‘ABK Academy’. The pro­gram com­bines lec­tures, on-site as­sign­ments and team projects, which of­fer stu­dents the op­por­tu­nity to en­rich their knowl­edge of the bank­ing sec­tor and gain first­hand ex­pe­ri­ence in the work field, while em­pha­siz­ing the im­por­tance of team­work.

ABK is an avid sup­porter of ed­u­ca­tion and has suc­cess­fully built strong part­ner­ships with many of Kuwait’s ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions to of­fer par­tic­i­pat­ing stu­dents a re­ward­ing ex­pe­ri­ence at a cru­cial point in their ed­u­ca­tional jour­ney.
