Earlier this year, Jafza signed a MoU with Danube Welfare Centre post which motivational talks and registrations were conducted to help workers enrol for the classes. In a short span of three-weeks over 1,000 students have been registered and have been assigned the classes.
The Danube Welfare Center was set up in 2012 to make contributions to society and to deliver a positive transformation in the lives of workers in Dubai. It is a non-profit social organisation licensed by the UAE’s Community Development Authority, offering a range of free training courses to help unskilled workers improve their language skills and further develop their careers. The initiative includes a three-month Basic English language programme. – TradeArabia News Service
