NEOM: NEOM’s Corporate Social Responsibility department has launched its “You are the future” initiative in collaboration with the National Program for Community Development in the Regions.
With this step, NEOM seeks to support and inspire the young students of the NEOM and Tabuk communities by equipping them with eco-friendly backpacks in preparation for returning to school.
Three thousand backpacks, including school essentials and sustainability awareness brochures, were distributed with the help of more than 70 volunteers from NEOM staff.
The initiative has been a way for them to connect with the community and contribute to its social development by supporting the students’ learning experience.
The department chose eco-friendly materials to go into the packages, in line with NEOM’s vision of developing sustainable communities.
This project is one of the series of social initiatives NEOM has carried out to enhance social welfare for the community. Through these programs, more than 400 scholarships were awarded to young men and women, of whom 150 were recruited by NEOM.
In addition, capacity-building programs have developed the digital skills and language competence of more than 2050 individuals. More than 3000 participants have taken part in social responsibility events and activities.
NEOM’s social responsibility strategy primarily aims to help every member of society by ensuring they receive equal access to opportunities that will accelerate their progress through quality education.
