MONITORING REPORT ISB: Injaz Al-Arab, the regional office of Junior Achievement Worldwide, and ExxonMobil have announced a $500,000 two-year grant meant to support a new learning platform to combine digital and classroom learning for Injaz Al-Arabs flagship Company Programme.
This experiential learning programme takes youth through the entire start-up cycle of creating their own businesses during an academic year. Upon completion of translation, localisation and digitisation of the programme, the new platform will be piloted in Egypt, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and UAE with an estimated 600, 60, 100, and 40 (respectively) high school and university students, before being released to Injaz Al-Arabs network across the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) and Pakistan.
“ExxonMobil is a founding board member of Injaz Al-Arab, and this collaboration marks 10 years of support, which has been crucial to the development and expansion of our operations across the Mena region,” said Sheikh Khaled Al Nahyan, Chairman of Injaz Al-Arab.
Injaz Al-Arab is moving toward a digital and hybrid learning approach to efficiently maximise the benefits of its unique volunteer model, which brings private sector volunteers into classrooms to provide instruction and real world expertise in financial literacy, entrepreneurship and workforce readiness.
ExxonMobils partnership with Injaz Al-Arab provides a unique opportunity for young and aspiring entrepreneurs to showcase their business acumen and creativity with an audience of some of Menas most successful business leaders.
