Alcatel-Lucent, Injaz partner on education in Morocco and Egypt
Alcatel-Lucent is partnering Injaz Egypt and Injaz Al Maghrib in Morocco on educational development programmes in both countries. Injaz works to empower and prepare middle school, high school and university students to enter the workforce as qualified and skilled employees. The NGO encourages private sector participation and Corporate Citizenship involvement in educational development.
Alcatel-Lucent employees participate as corporate volunteers, with the support of Injaz organisations, in different educational development programs: in Egypt with the “Adopt a School “program and in Morocco with the “Entrepreneurship Masterclass” programme. Both organisations are members of Junior Achievement worldwide, the world’s largest and fastest growing organisation specialising in economic education. Alcatel-Lucent volunteers share their professional life experience and skills with the youth, giving them practical training on how to succeed in the work environment.
“The Foundation’s commitment to these projects is part of Alcatel-Lucent’s initiatives worldwide to address global challenges such as digital inclusion and sustainability. The focal point of the Foundation’s activity is centred around supporting educational programmes for young people. This is strengthened by the passion of Alcatel-Lucent employees for volunteering, investing their personal time and skills to help communities in which they live and work. During these programmes, students will develop the attitude, behaviour, confidence and skills needed to take responsibility for building their own futures and to become successful and contributing members of society,” said Bishalakhi Ghosh, Director of Alcatel-Lucent Foundation.
