CNN Arabic is partnering with the Abdulla Al Ghurair Foundation for Education on two major projects as part of CNN Arabic’s key initiatives in its 20th anniversary year – the continued development of Arab youth and female empowerment.
In the area of Arab youth development, CNN Arabic and the Abdulla Al Ghurair Foundation for Education are working together on “Siraj” – a unique initiative that will upskill 300 young Emirati and Arabs over the next three years using core journalistic principles and practices. The aim of the UAE-based course is to help develop young people with the skills of the future identified by leading organizations to help them think differently about improving their employability and competitiveness in the job market.
In addition, CNN Arabic and the Foundation are working together on a women empowerment project that aims to tell the stories of young women across the Middle East. The project sheds light on the role of Arab women who have made a difference in their communities.
