- PRESS RELEASE
The 'Shababna wa Shebna' summer youth leadership camp, organised by Altaaat Leadership Development, concluded its activities last week. The camp was attended by a group of 12 young potential Emirati youth leaders and took place for five days on Sir Bani Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.
Activities included assembling a raft with limited resources and using it to transport members of the camping team across river banks. Campers also went on a safari through the island's valleys and mountains, where they encountered cheetahs, giraffes, gazelles and a range of other wildlife living on the island.
These activities, along with kayaking, swimming, archery and numerous indoor team-building activities were all organized as part of the camp's programme to help enrich the targeted learning outcomes for the participating youth.
Speaking on behalf of Waha Capital, Chief Executive Officer Salem Rashid Al Noaimi expressed his delight in having supported this important youth initiative and in Waha Capital's active support for leadership programmes targeting UAE nationals.
Al Noaimi said, "One of Waha Capital's social aims is to create value for Abu Dhabi and the broader UAE economy, and to develop a diverse and qualified pool of talent, including Emirati nationals. Supporting this challenging and well-developed programme by Shababna wa Shebna to cultivate the leadership skills of young Emiratis is a privilege for us and a positive step in the social growth of our communities."
Mrs. Hala Alturki, Head of the Organising Committee of "Shababna Wa Shebna" thanked Waha Capital for the company's generous sponsorship. She stressed that such support provides young people from various walks of life with an equal opportunity to take advantage of such programmes which can help fulfil their potential as future leaders.
"This commendable contribution will make all the difference towards ensuring the delivery of opportunities to young people," said Mrs. Alturki. "We extend our thanks to Waha Capital for their support and confidence in our programme."
