Injaz Bahrain Goes Online Amid COVID-19 Lockdown

The youth empowerment NGO offers programmes in work readiness, financial literacy and entrepreneurship for students.

Responding quickly to the COVID-19 lockdown in Bahrain, and taking advantage of the fact that school students are spending their time at home, Injaz’s local chapter have launched a slew of online educational programmes to prepare young Bahranis for the world of business.

A regional non-profit that focuses on equipping students and young people with the skills needed to enter the workforce, inspiring them to become the entrepreneurs and business leaders of tomorrow, the programmes designed in line with the Bahrani government’s decision to keep schools closed aim to keep students engaged and learning, despite the pandemic.

Programmes offered include ‘Personal Finance’, ‘Entrepreneurial Mindset’, and ‘Smart Investor’, all designed to get students ready for work. “Online learning has become crucial during these uncertain times. Launching our programmes online is the least that could be done to bolster the nation’s efforts in combating the novel coronavirus. This initiative has been taken to ensure learning continues and we keep students engaged by offering them enriched programmes. The programmes, which aim to educate students on work readiness, financial literacy and entrepreneurship, are offered online to primary, intermediate, secondary and university students. We are also thrilled to announce that we will also be hosting more virtual workshop and summer programmes in the upcoming months,” says Hana Sarwnai, Executive Director at Injaz Bahrain.
