Muscat, 13 December 2021 – Building on its legacy of giving back, CC Energy Development (CCED), along with its partners in Blocks 3 & 4, Mitsui E&P Middle East B.V. and Tethys Oil Block 3 & 4 Limited, have renewed their collaboration with the Ministry of Education which started in the academic year 2019/2020 and continues in the academic year 2021/2022. The programme ‘For the country positive interaction and a sense of responsibility’ aims to involve students from 44 government schools, who will be tasked with devising projects that address socio-economic challenges in their communities.
Dr. Badriah Hamad Al Masharfiya, Head of Citizenship Studies, Department of Citizenship at the Ministry of Education said, “In alignment with Oman’s Vision 2040, we are working to educate young people in a way that incorporates Oman’s values and is consistent with the contemporary requirements of sustainable development and future skills. The private sector is key to helping us achieve this and we are pleased to be partnering once again with CCED and its partners for our latest initiative, which will usher new paths of development and encourage students to broaden their horizons and awareness of current issues.”
Badar Al Sariri, HR and External Affairs Director at CCED said, “We believe we have a responsibility to share the economic and social benefits of our operations with the community around us. But more than that, we want to empower young people so they can have an active role in the future of their communities and their country. We are glad to be partnering once again with the Ministry of Education and engaging 44 schools in the academic year 2021/2022 to see a real impact of the initiative on Oman and hopefully, bring value for generations to come.”
Since the beginning of its operations in 2007, CCED and its partners has been focused on community and people development under its ‘think global, act local’ motto. Among its initiatives with the Ministry of Education, CCED recently celebrated the successful completion of the Ministry of Education’s book, along with many other initiatives across the fields of education, business development, as well as community and wellness.
CCED and its partners in Blocks 3 & 4, Mitsui E&P Middle East B.V. and Tethys Oil Block 3 & 4 Limited recently pledged support for two youth-development organizations, Outward Bound Oman and Youth Vision. That collaboration, which offers different kinds of skill-building courses, is part of CCED’s CSR program that is committed to empowering young, talented Omanis and creating long-term economic and social value for Oman.
