The Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC) is sponsoring a training course for the Charity Committee for Orphans Care (ENSAN) to help its personnel further develop their skills to render multidimensional services to orphans.
The three-day course in Riyadh covered various important functions including research, social service, fund-raising and sponsorships.
It also touches on enhancing skills in persuasion techniques, diagnosis, building social support, successful marketing, and pressure management.
The committee’s programs and projects and resource development methods were discussed during the course.
A number of agreements are scheduled to be signed by the committee with private companies on the sidelines of the course.
In appreciation of SABIC’s support, the committee honored the company on the opening day of the course.
Yaarob Al-Thenayan, director, CSR, corporate communications, SABIC, received a plaque on behalf of the company.
Commenting on SABIC’s support to the cause, Al-Thenayan said that it is part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility strategy, and is in recognition of the committee’s dedicated efforts in caring for orphans.
“Our social responsibility programs are diverse in nature and involve collaboration in various sectors. We aim at making a clear difference to society,” he said.
