The Zahara Group, partnered with ‘The Association of Early Intervention of Children with Disability’, to organised a cultural excursion for specially-abled children which included a visit to the National Museum and Al Ahlam Palace on 15th November 2022. This is in line with our commitment to ensure social inclusiveness and provide platforms that promote the participation in all things of specially-abled people from all paths of life. This event was one of the varied CSR initiatives planned for our 50th Anniversary Celebrations
A total of sixty people including children from The Association of Early Intervention of Children with Disability, accompanied by Teachers and parents participated in a fun excursion exploring these national treasures. The group was escorted by a team of two coaches, four volunteer guides, and two chauffeurs to ensure a smooth outing for all involved.
The children met with the volunteers in the morning and the fact that this was the first such event for the organisation led to much excitement among the children as the vehicles transported these excited young kids from one venue to the other venue. Post the ride the children participated in several fun games and got the opportunity to play with the three cricket stars.
While the session was organised to acknowledge and motivate the children to follow their dreams, as all things are possible, it also helped in rejuvenating our employees giving them a breath of fresh air as they interacted with young minds helping them explore new things away from their daily schedule. The children were overjoyed to explore these sites with their families, and teachers.
One of our aims at The Zahara Group is to make travel a meaningful activity and experience in social, ecological and economic terms. We attach great value here to open communications amongst all the parties involved, from our customers to our personnel and our travel partners at our tourist destinations. We want social inclusiveness to be felt, both within and outside the company; we want to see it practiced at every level in our company as it remains a cornerstone of The Zahara Group’s corporate culture. Which is why we were delighted to promote cultural tours as a medium of empowering children in this project, witnessing a tremendous transformation in things. We are thrilled that this event was considered a success by the children, their parents, and The Association of Early Intervention of Children with Disability whose CEO Ms Sabah Al Bahlani expressed her thanks on behalf of their organization.
We have liaised and associated ourselves with like-minded organisations to mindfully bring social inclusiveness into our products and work culture. We at The Zahara Group truly appreciate our team of volunteers who enthusiastically signed up for the excursion. We are also thankful to The Association of Early Intervention of Children with Disability for giving us this opportunity and appreciate their commitment and the work being done by them for specially-abled children.
