Landmark Arabia facilitates virtual learning with Alnahda Society


August 5, 2020 | By RetailME Bureau

Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, Landmark Arabia facilitates virtual learning with Alnahda Society in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) by donating 100 laptops. The donation will support the organisation’s ‘Tiqani’ programme aimed at enabling children from low-income, women-led families to continue their education virtually during the COVID-19 crisis.

The ‘Tiqani’ programme works towards spreading technical awareness amongst the youth by equipping them with basic technological skills and has been developed in accordance with the UN Sustainable Development Goal 4 to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.”

“At Landmark Group, we have always believed that education has the power to shape lives. We are really happy to partner with the Alnahda Society and be able to support them in fulfilling their mission of helping children from low-income, women-led households pursue their education during such a challenging time. With the outbreak of COVID-19 across the region, our goal has been to identify the needs of the local communities and work on-ground with organisations that share our vision of making a genuine difference in the lives of those severely impacted,” said Nisha Jagtiani, group director, Landmark Group. “We recognise that continued access to education and distance learning can be a challenge particularly for children without access to devices, which is why we felt so strongly about working with Alnahda.”

As Landmark Arabia facilitates virtual learning with Alnahda Society, Rasha Alturki, CEO, Alnahda Society, added, “It’s partners like Landmark Arabia that enable us in making a difference. Their recent contribution will support our efforts to make sure that children who are facing social and financial challenges do not fall behind academically because of their lack of access to the required technological tools for their continued educational development. These computers will help us to provide equal opportunities to our beneficiaries’ children and empower them to reach their future scholastic and career goals.”

In addition to its donation to Alnahda Society, Landmark Arabia has also partnered with accredited non-profit organisations across the GCC in its concerted efforts to support the most vulnerable population that has been adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
