Teaching Essential Skills to Public School Students

November 21, 2017

As part of our corporate volunteer program, Raya Holding partnered with INJAZ Egypt to contribute to their skills-based education program in public schools. INJAZ is a NGO active across the region, tackling the endemic issue of youth unemployment and outdated education systems in the Arab region. INJAZ provides targeted learning to prepare Arab youth for the workforce, including basic business and personal skills that enable youth to become business leaders and entrepreneurs, supporting their communities and accelerating sustainable growth.

Raya employees leveraged their know-how by teaching Egyptian students key skills not covered in the public school curriculum, in such fields as financial literacy, basic management, effective communication, self-discovery, and responsible citizenship. Raya employees volunteered regularly in neighboring public schools to provide students with these important skills, to ensure they are better prepared to be constructive members of the economy and work towards sustainable development at large.
