INVESTBANK partners with the YMWA to Students with special needs

Wed, 10/04/2017

INVESTBANK, the leading bank in providing innovative banking services, has announced the signing of an agreement with the Young Muslim Women’s Association (YMWA), under which the bank will sponsor the YMWA for Special Education – an institution managed by the association that provides education and training to people with special needs.

This initiative stems from INVESTBANK’s commitment to make a lasting positive impact on the lives of all segments of the local community, particularly the often-marginalized segments; children, young, and adults with special needs. By supporting forward-thinking organizations like the YMWA for Special Education, the Bank hopes to contribute to improving the quality of life of people with special needs and to provide them with the knowledge and training necessary to become active members of their community.

“We are honored to support the remarkable work being implemented by the YMWA Center for Special Education, which has created engaging and comprehensive education and training programs designed to help people with mild to moderate special needs,” commented INVESTBANK’s CEO Muntaser Dawwas.

The President of the Young Muslim Women’s Association, Khadija Saraj, lauded the initiative taken by INVESTBANK, saying: “The YMWA is deeply grateful to INVESTBANK for demonstrating a sincere understanding of the sensitivities associated with our work with people with special needs, as well as its efforts to support the activities of the association. The sponsorship provided by INVETSBANK will help maintain the work being done at YMWA to secure the fundamental needs of our beneficiaries.”

The YMWA Center for Special Education was established in 1974 under the patronage of HRH Princess Sarvath El Hassan. Today, the center serves around 120 students (mild to moderate mentally handicapped) of both genders, most of whom come from underprivileged families and cannot cover the full cost of their education. In addition to offering a holistic education experience, the centre also ensures that the basic needs of the students are met, providing clothing, transportation, warm meals, medical checkups and monetary assistance to some of the less fortunate families.
