Kuwait Times - - Sports -

KUWAIT: Oore­doo Kuwait’s brand am­bas­sador the tri-ath­lete Na­jla AlJeraiwi won the sil­ver medal in the African Triathlon Union Cup - the Pan Arab Com­pe­ti­tion, which was held ear­lier in Sharm Al Shaikh. The ti­tle she earned is yet an­other suc­cess in the ath­lete’s sports jour­ney.

Oore­doo Kuwait’s Cor­po­rate Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Se­nior Di­rec­tor Mi­j­bil Alay­oub lauded the achieve­ment, not­ing that it counts as an achieve­ment for all the youth of Kuwait. He added: “We have great pride in the achieve­ment of our young promis­ing Kuwaiti fe­male tri-ath­lete Na­jla Al-Jeraiwi. We strongly be­lieve that with the right sup­port, our youth can reach their high­est po­ten­tial.”

Ear­lier this year, Oore­doo proudly an­nounced its spon­sor­ship to Kuwaiti Tri-ath­lete Na­jla Al-Jeraiwi as its first fe­male brand am­bas­sador for the cur­rent sea­son 2018-2019. The spon­sor­ship comes in align­ment with the com­pany’s com­mit­ment to en­rich­ing youth and sup­port­ing their pas­sions and the com­pany’s ded­i­ca­tion to em­pow­er­ing women.

Al-Jeraiwi was the first Arab fe­male tri-ath­lete rep­re­sen­ta­tive in the 17th Asian Games, South Korea and the first GCC rep­re­sen­ta­tive in UCI Road World Cham­pi­onships 2016. She was also the run­ner-up in the ATU African Triathlon & Pan Arab cham­pi­onship and the GCC cy­cling cham­pion in both Time Trial and Road race. AlJeraiwi is cur­rently the na­tional cham­pion of Kuwait in both triathlon and cy­cling. She has come in the top 3 in mul­ti­ple re­gional triathlons, and won the gold medal in the Abu Dhabi World Triathlon last March.

Sup­port­ing youth and em­pow­er­ing women is among Oore­doo’s top pri­or­i­ties through its CSR strat­egy. The com­pany signed a mem­o­ran­dum of un­der­stand­ing with the Min­istry of State for Youth Af­fairs in 2017, 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.
