INJAZ Egypt launches "Starting Right" program for students
Published in Amwal Al Ghad on 22 - 08 - 2019

INJAZ Egypt launched "Starting Right" which is an interdisciplinary learning experience that tackles basic concepts and trains its participants on skills related to INJAZ Egypt's educational pillars: work readiness, financial literacy and entrepreneurship, emphasizing the importance of self-discovery and teamwork.
Over the course of the 2018/2019 academic year, MetLife sponsored the program. This program provides students with intensive experience, as they get divided into teams, the participants are engaged in interactive business activities, in which they learn about the challenges of high quality production, and apply financial principles to track their income and expenses.
Through INJAZ Egypt's Starting Right, MetLife touched the lives of 3,760 students across 94 classes in 24 Egyptian public schools. Seventeen MetLife volunteers committed themselves to 85 hours of engaging with the Fifth and Sixth Primary students on the program material.
"Our partnership with Injaz is based on our belief in INJAZ Egypt's mission and purpose. If you want to make a change in the community, you have to start with the new young generations. This is where the role of Injaz programs, to change behaviors and shape the way of thinking, becomes vital. We volunteer with INJAZ because we believe in their role. We are very proud to partner with INJAZ, also volunteers always feel satisfied by giving back to the community through Injaz programs." Nevine Edward, Human Ressources Manager
