The summer course, which is designed exclusively for girls, enables participants to constructively utilize their leisure time, and provides them an opportunity to develop their special talents. Our cooperation with Dubai Educational Zone to organize this camp has encouraged our employees to register their daughters for this programme."
The summer course comprises various activities like taekwondo and swimming, in addition to various cultural and artistic activities, and allows participants to develop their skills in handicrafts, pottery, flower arrangements and table-setting. It also seeks to increase participants' social commitment as well as religious awareness, through various programmes involving recitation and memorization of the Holy Quran.
