Omantel, the leading provider of integrated telecommunication services in Oman, has reiterated its commitment to enhancing the skills of Omani youth through training programs by renewing its partnership with Outward Bound Oman.
This move is part of Omantel’s social responsibility programs, which began in 2013. The renewal agreement was signed between the two parties at Outward Bound Oman Training Centre in Muscat.
Outward Bound Oman is a non-profit organization established by a ministerial decision and is part of the Outward Bound Global Foundation that was launched in 1941.
Mr. Talal Al Maamari, CEO of Omantel, said that, “Omantel targets the youth to enhance their capabilities in the field of communications, technology, and programming by investing in their training across relevant sectors through partners like Outward Bound Oman. This institution trains young people in innovative ways as reflected in the training camps for job seekers, people with disabilities, and school students, benefiting more than 679 Omani youth through 46 courses.”
“We are pleased to continue this investment by supporting four training programs targeting different groups, strengthening the efforts of Outward Bound Oman, and entering into new training programs. The goal is to impart their basic life skills through external courses, boost their self-confidence, enhance their sense of responsibility, and build a team,” added Mr. Al Maamari.
Mr. Sulaiman Bin Masoud Al Harthy, Chairman of the Board of Directors, Outward Bound Oman, underlined the success of the joint efforts of Omantel and Outward Bound Oman in equipping young people with essential life skills and confidence needed to embark on their path to success.”
Further, the Omantel representatives toured the training center and reviewed the efforts made by the center in providing training courses to different groups of society.
