Imdaad, a leading provider of integrated facilities management solutions in the GCC, has announced its support as Silver Sponsor of the “Maharati Program – Winter 2012”, a unique initiative that aims to equip Emirati teenage students with different skills needed to enhance their personal development and technical capabilities. Imdaad’s partnership with the Maharati Program is in line with the company’s CSR strategy and its commitment to responsible business practices.
Mahmood Hussein Rasheed, COO, Imdaad, said: “Given the company’s important role in the sustainable and responsible upkeep of the society, Imdaad constantly explores other productive ways to create a positive impact on the society. Imdaad’s sponsorship of the Maharati Program therefore adds a new dimension to our CSR initiatives as we help inculcate a sense of social responsibility among Emirati teenage students. Sustainable facilities management is not just about sophisticated technologies and best practices; it is also all about the commitment and genuine concern of people towards the community and the environment. This is something we want to instill in our youth through our support of the Maharati initiative, to prepare them to become the future leaders of the UAE.”
The founder and CEO of ALQETAAF Consultancy, Khawla Ali Ibrahim Ali, said: Maharati program combines both technical and soft skills development, while it will also give the students the opportunity to meet successful leaders from different fields who will share their success stories and experiences. The technical skills training includes Mobile Application, Graphic Designing, Web Designing and Video Editing, while there is also the ‘Emirati Etiquette’ course wherein teenage students will learn and practice the standards and traditions of the Emirati culture.

Organized by ALQETAAF, a leading Training, IT & Human Resource Consultancy firm, the winter training program builds on the tremendous success of “Maharati Program – Summer 2012”, she concluded.
