200 join adult English education program
Doha, November 25, 2013
About 200 low-skilled workers commenced their eight-week training under Reach Out To Asia’s (ROTA) 2013-2014 Adult English Literacy (RAEL) initiative at Hamad Bin Khalifa University in Doha.
ROTA’s Adult English Literacy drive comes again this year in collaboration with Hamad Bin Khalifa University and in partnership with Qatar Petroleum (QP) to enable workers to achieve personal goals and improve life opportunities, far from their daily duties.
As many as 58 student volunteers representing Georgetown University School of Foreign Service, Texas A & M University, Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar, Carnegie Mellon University, and Reach Out To Asia are entrusted with the task of helping the workers improve their English language skills.
“The ROTA Adult English Literacy Program is a way of supporting workers to enhance their ability to achieve personal goals and improve life opportunities. We hope that by participating in the RAEL program, participants will develop higher aspirations and an increased sense of wellbeing and empowerment,” says Rota executive director Essa Al Mannai. –TradeArabia News Service
