Governor of Asir Honors Zain KSA during Community Partnership Forum
HRH Prince Faisal Bin Khalid, Governor of Asir Region, honored Zain KSA during the events of the Community Partnership Forum organized by King Khalid University in Abha. Mr. Hassan Kabbani, CEO of Zain KSA, received the honorary trophy from the event sponsor, as anappreciation for the company’s official sponsorship of the forum, and its constant support for the University’s events and activities.
Zain KSA’s sponsorship for the event comes as part of the company’s interest in forming community partnerships with both public sectors and higher education institutions in particular. This year, the company signed a mutual cooperation agreement with King Khaled University to implement several activities within the Zain University Development Program, which include development and training programs for Saudi youth, providing human development, counseling and studies along with sponsoring community programs.
Mr. Hassan Kabbani admired the great efforts of the institutions of higher education in the Kingdom to serve these youth, wishing for this integrative cooperation to grow and include various universities and educational institutions. He noted that Zain’s University Development Program seeks to provide all the practical experience necessary for Saudi youth during their university years, empowering them with both scientific and practical knowledge during their early stages, and ensuring that they have the needed expertise before entering the job market. He added that all these efforts are part of Zain’s commitment to sustain and expand social responsibility.
It is worth noting that the Community Partnership Forum aims to promote the interest of government and business institutions in community partnership programs that focus on sustainable community development. It also strives to show many successful examples and distinguished initiatives in the field of community partnerships, and identify their factors of success and the possibility of developing and spreading them.
