SEC’s Alkahraba Friends program honored by Saudi Forum for Volunteering

Guests and visitors of the first Saudi Forum for Volunteering praised the Alkahraba Friends program, launched by the Saudi Electricity Company (SEC) as part of its strategy for digital transformation and e-services development.
The forum, which was held under the patronage of Prince Abdulaziz bin Saud bin Nayef, minister of interior, honored SEC for its efforts in the field of volunteering, participation and sponsorship of the forum.
Over the past years, the program has succeeded in attracting thousands of volunteers among citizens and residents, encouraging them to initiate and report any electrical safety observations, in any area of the Kingdom, through an easy and straightforward way via WhatsApp (0533991100) or the account of Alkahraba Friend on Twitter (@alkahrabafriend).
Last December, the SEC signed a cooperation agreement with the Association of Voluntary Work to establish a specialized center to contribute to sustainable social development, provide research, studies and consultations in the field of social responsibility, training and development services, and promote and disseminate voluntary work among young people. Hamoud bin Ouda Al-Ghubaini, senior vice president for corporate communications and PR at SEC, stressed that the Alkahraba Friends program has achieved great success, not only in the field of electrical safety, but in urging and encouraging citizens to participate and interact.
Osama bin Mansour Al-Khalidi, chairman of the Digital Channels Group at the Saudi Electricity Company, confirmed that the technical reports of the Alkahraba Friend program showed that volunteers have reported electrical safety observations in all regions, cities and villages of the Kingdom.
He noted that there is a clear rise in awareness within all social classes about the importance of the initiative and participation with the company’s specialists in developing electric services.
The agreement signed by SEC and the Association of Voluntary Work also aims to approve the company’s national and international volunteers within the United Nations Volunteers program.
It also provides training to a number of the company’s employees on the International Voluntary Work Program, following the accreditation and training of qualified trainers to present licensed programs.

Saudi law team gets right verdict in Kuwait ‘trial’

A team from Prince Mohammed bin Fahd University’s law department recently finished second in an Arabic moot court competition held at Kuwait International Law School.
The academic competition has teams of students from different law schools acting as advocates, and making written and spoken arguments to simulate a criminal law case.
Arabic moot court competitions have been hosted annually by one of the Arab universities in the region for the past five years. Thirteen teams representing different Arab countries took part in the Kuwait contest.
Prince Mohammed bin Fahd University’s major competencies include communication in both English and Arabic in professional and social situations; the ability to use modern technologies to acquire information, solve problems and produce planned results; the ability to reason logically and creatively to make informed and responsible decisions; the ability to perform professional responsibilities effectively in both local and international contexts; and being able to work effectively with others to accomplish tasks and achieve group goals.
The core competencies are a required part of curriculum for all students during their first two years in the college program. These competencies are evident on and off campus through student interaction with faculty, staff and others. This enables students to be successful in their chosen field and to contribute to the development of their communities.
Prince Mohammed bin Fahd University, located in Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, is one of the largest private universities in the Kingdom.
The university aims at educating the “whole” person; it recognizes that success in the world depends not only on knowledge of a specific academic discipline, but also on a broader set of skill and abilities.
