KUWAIT: Oore­doo, Kuwait’s fastest net­work, an­nounced its spon­sor­ship for the Youth Ini­tia­tive Award for the se­cond con­sec­u­tive year. The award rec­og­nizes vol­un­teer and hu­man­i­tar­ian ef­forts by youth in the Arab re­gion. The an­nounce­ment came in a press con­fer­ence that was held last Satur­day at the JW Mar­riot ho­tel, and is or­ga­nized in part­ner­ship with the Arab Me­dia Fo­rum. More than 860 pro­jects from the Arab world par­tic­i­pated in the event, which is judged by a panel that in­cludes a num­ber of lead­ers in phi­lan­thropy in the re­gion. The spon­sor­ship of this event comes in tan­dem with Oore­doo’s core val­ues of car­ing, con­nect­ing and chal­leng­ing.

Among the par­tic­i­pat­ing spon­sors of the event were the Min­istry of Com­merce and In­dus­try and the Min­istry of State for Youth Af­fairs, rep­re­sented by Min­is­ter Khaled AlRoudan; the En­vi­ron­ment Pub­lic Author­ity, rep­re­sented its man­ager Sheikh Ab­dul­lah Al-Hu­moud Al-Sabah; the Pub­lic Author­ity of Youth rep­re­sented by its pres­i­dent Abrul­rah­man Al-Mu­tairi. The event was also at­tended by guest of honor Arab League Sec­re­tary Gen­eral’s Spe­cial En­voy for Hu­man­i­tar­ian Re­lief, Sheikha Hessa Al Thani. Speak­ing at the event, CEO and Gen­eral Man­ager Sheikh Mo­hammed bin Ab­dul­lah Al Thani re­it­er­ated that Oore­doo’s spon­sor­ship comes to re­it­er­ate the com­pany’s com­mit­ment to sup­port­ing youth in a va­ri­ety of fields to en­rich their ex­pe­ri­ence, es­pe­cially vol­un­teerism which is a field that Oore­doo adopted even since the in­cep­tion of its vol­un­teer pro­gram, nearly four years ago.

Al Thani ex­plained that Oore­doo’s sup­port for youth is two-fold: through its prod­ucts and ser­vices, and through its cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity ini­tia­tives. With the re­gards to the prod­ucts and ser­vices, Al Thani ex­plained that Oore­doo’s prod­ucts and ser­vices are tai­lored spe­cially to cater for the needs of youth and en­trepreneurs. This is es­pe­cially ap­par­ent in Oore­doo’s par­tic­i­pa­tion in launch­ing the Kuwait Busi­ness Cen­ter ear­lier this year, which

is a gov­ern­ment en­tity es­tab­lished by the Min­istry of Com­merce and In­dus­try that is ded­i­cated to stream­lin­ing the process of busi­ness li­cens­ing for mi­croen­ter­prises in Kuwait. Oore­doo’s pack­ages and bun­dles pro­vide com­pre­hen­sive so­lu­tions at com­pet­i­tive prices, aimed at pro­pel­ling en­trepreneurs to­wards suc­cess, es­pe­cially in an age where the in­ter­net and com­mu­ni­ca­tion play a ma­jor role in all busi­nesses.

Re­gard­ing the com­pany’s cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity port­fo­lio, CEO Al Thani noted, “We are proud to be among the first com­pa­nies to sign a mem­o­ran­dum of un­der­stand­ing with the Min­istry of State for Youth Af­fairs, ex­tend­ing our sup­port to the gov­ern­men­tal en­tity that ded­i­cates its time and ef­fort to cre­ate a bet­ter en­vi­ron­ment for youth across Kuwait. We’re proud to say that our sus­tain­able Oore­doo Vol­un­teer Pro­gram is a tes­ta­ment to our com­mit­ment when it comes to sup­port­ing youth, es­pe­cially in the field of vol­un­teer work.”
