Doha, May 20, 2014
Reach Out to Asia (Rota), a Qatar-based non-profit organisation, has signed a deal naming Qatar Chemical and Petrochemical Marketing and Distribution Company (Muntajat) as the ‘official sponsor’ for its iEarn-Qatar programme for the coming three years.
Muntajat holds exclusive rights to purchase, market, distribute and sell Qatar’s production of chemical, polymer and fertiliser products on the global market.
With the signing of this sponsorship deal with Rota, Muntajat kicks off its corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme aimed at contributing to the development of society in Qatar and abroad.
IEarn is a non-profit organisation made up of over 30,000 schools and youth organisations in more than 130 countries, empowering teachers and young people to work together using the Internet and other new communications technologies.
Rota, the sole representative for iEarn in Qatar since 2008, has been supporting iEarn’s objectives of improving learning and teaching, and arousing civil awareness and responsibility.
Mohamed Jassim Al Naama, Rota acting director, said: “As technology plays an important role in improving learning and teaching, the support from Muntajat will provide an excellent opportunity for us to reinforce our shared goal of providing the youth of today with the tools and skills necessary for them to actively participate in the economic, social, human and environmental pillars of the Qatar National Vision 2030.”
“Rota is happy to collaborate with Muntajat for the Arab youth improvement through iEarn-Qatar Program 2014. We aim to provide students and teachers with modern tools of learning to join a global community who believes in the Internet-based collaboration for a better planet. We are two responsible institutions aware of our leading role and what the local and international communities are requiring from both of us. It is through partnerships such as this, that the youth of Qatar will gain the skills necessary to become the leaders of our communities, our cities and our countries”.
Abdulrahman Ali Al-Abdulla, chief executive officer of Muntajat, said: “We are pleased to team up with Rota to sponsor the iEarn-Qatar programme. iEarn is a pioneering educational network, and through our involvement in this programme we will be providing people in Qatar with better opportunities for a quality education.
“The iEarn-Qatar programme promotes cultural exchange among students from around the world, which is aligned with our position as a multinational company. The agreement will offer us an opportunity to connect with our youth while at the same time engage with the local and international communities,” he added.
“This agreement will be the beginning of a broader partnership with Muntajat to accomplish the noble goals that the two organisations are aiming to realise. The most important of those goals is to help the community in Qatar by enabling the youth to improve their lives, and face the challenges of their future” concluded Al Naama. - TradeArabia News Service
