Sodic donates computer lab to Cairo varsity
Cairo, December 8, 2010
Sodic, fast-growing real estate company in Egypt, has donated a computer lab to Cairo University's Faculty of Science’s Physics Department.
The Faculty of Science was chosen for the Sodic Computer Lab because there was a strong need for professors and students within the Physics Department to have access to online research as well as partake in the online training courses commissioned by YAL and Nahdet El Mahrousa.
“At Sodic we realise the importance of providing educational tools to Egypt’s youth,” said Ahmad Badrawi, Sodic’s chief business development officer.
“The young people of Egypt represent the country’s future and there is no better way to ensure the maximum potential of a population, than investing in their education.”
Sodic has played an important role in the Young Arab Leaders’ campaigns to help support local universities in Egypt. Sodic and YAL had signed a MoU, in which Sodic supports the YAL Global Action Program and Youth Outreach Program in Egypt.
Young Arab Leaders (YAL) launched the Learning for Life program as a pilot in Egypt. The idea was to research the needs of the job market versus the skills that young Arabs are graduating with from university.
Based on the research, courses were developed to empower the students with the skills, knowledge and training needed to make them more competitive upon graduation.-TradeArabia News Service
