Aqaba, September 16 - The Aqaba Container Terminal
(ACT) said on Monday that it recently introduced its Ekfal Taleb
2 Campaign in the Red Sea resort in Jordan, marking the launch
of the second edition of its flagship educational initiative.
The campaign strives to empower community members through
education by reducing the school dropout rates caused by
families' economic hardship.
Falling in line with ACT's long-term CSR strategy, the
campaign offers support to 450 students from 18 government
schools in the city of Aqaba and its surrounding areas,
providing beneficiaries with school uniforms, school bags,
stationary, books and geometry sets.
The launch of Ekfal Taleb 2 coincides with the start of the
new school year and will extend throughout the 2013-2014
academic year.
The chief commissioner of Aqaba Special Economic Zone and
ACT chairman of the board of directors, Kamel Mahadin, said that
the "campaign's launch is in line with the company's ongoing
aims to support all sectors of the community in Aqaba, and
echoes the company's interest in educational advancement, along
with its strive to provide equal educational opportunities for
all community segments".
This interest in learning is "fueled by ACT's full
understanding of the power of education as a catalyst for
developmental advancement and positive social change," Kamel
underlined.
Seeing itself as an active contributor to positive
socio-economic development in Aqaba, ACT reiterates its
commitment to supporting less fortunate families by contributing
to the education of children.
Ekfal Taleb 2 was launched by ACT following the success of
its Ekfal Taleb 1 campaign.
In its first edition, the campaign supported 300 students
for the 2012-2013 academic year.
