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

The forum honored SEC for its efforts in the field of volunteering, participation and sponsorship of the event.
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.
