RIYADH: Saudi Arabia’s Technical and Vocational Training Corporation (TVTC) has announced that more than 2 million trainees have benefited from the volunteer work provided by trainers, institutes and colleges.
Ahmed bin Fahd Al-Fuhaid, TVTC governor, made the announcement on Tuesday as he addressed a world conference on “Scout and Voluntary Work,” according to a statement.
The conference was organized by the Saudi Arabian Boy Scouts Association (SABA) under the auspices of King Salman, the TVTC said in a statement.
The conference witnessed the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the TVTC and SABA to increase the number of training institutes and technical colleges for scouts.
The TVTC governor explained that volunteer work is a fundamental and important factor in community development and necessary to engender unity and cooperation among members.
He said that TVTC volunteers work in different fields like investment, services around Haj and Umrah pilgrimages, as well as Saudi National Day.
Al-Fuhaid added that some 12,000 cars were attended to by the trainers and trainees of the colleges and technical institutes.
