21 June 2017: Alghanim Industries, one of the largest private companies in the region, announced the launch of the English Language and Skills for Success summer program in association with AMIDEAST for children at the Children’s Home orphanage in Kuwait.
The program is being offered to children between the ages of 6 and 10, and is aimed at developing their language skills in four areas which include listening, speaking, reading and writing, as well as broadening other language abilities and grammar.
The Children’s Home is an orphanage operated by the Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor’s Social Welfare Sector. Over the course of the last three years, Alghanim Industries pledged to bear the full cost of restoring six houses, in addition to the outdoor playground and central kitchen.
Commenting on the summer program, Kutayba Yusuf Alghanim, Chairman of Alghanim Industries and Member of the Board at AMIDEAST, said: “In the current economic and technological climate, mastering the English language has become essential. In fact, it’s a pre-requisite for any employment or educational opportunities. Although the English language is taught as part of the curriculum during the year, a summer program that is properly structured by experts, such as the ones at AMIDEAST, will greatly improve and hone the children’s abilities. That is what makes me one of the biggest proponents of such educational initiatives in Kuwait, and even more so because they support our children at the orphanage. This will help them become engaging members of our society in the future and provide them with a competitive advantage throughout their careers.”
