Her Highness Sheikha Hessa Bint Khalifa Al Khalifa, Executive Director of INJAZ Bahrain, was awarded the CSR Person of the Year Award by the CSR Regional Network during a recent award ceremony held on at the Sheraton Hotel. The award comes as recognition for Her Highness’s efforts with the INJAZ Bahrain organization which span over two decades.

HH has been active in youth-empowering initiatives and developmental projects which have contributed in boosting voluntary work. Her positive activism efforts are directly responsible for Bahrain’s status on the regional and international map as a leader in youth empowerment and community stability.

INJAZ has implemented several entrepreneurial programs across the kingdom that span through intermediate, middle, high school and higher education. HH Sheikha Hessa recently gave a speech during the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Conference hosted by Kingdom University highlighting INJAZ’s accomplishments in the Kingdom and across the region.

Commenting on the award, HH Sheikha Hessa Bint Khalifa Al Khalifa said “I’m extremely proud of the work we’re doing at INJAZ Bahrain. Over the years, we have seen so many Bahraini students being recognized locally and regionally through INJAZ-led programs. ‘The Company’ program specifically fostered some great ideas from our students and is an initiative we are particularly proud of. This is a reflection of the great efforts put forward by the INJAZ Bahrain team, our volunteers and Board of Directors. We see this as a sign that we are heading in the right direction and will continue to strive forward in our efforts to empower the Bahraini youth.”

In addition to ‘The Company’ program, INJAZ also hosts a variety of other initiatives, workshops and mentoring programs, either independently or in partnership with industry experts, all aimed to help students understand the current business environment and inspire them to thrive in their future endeavors.

Since its establishment in 2005, INJAZ Bahrain has aimed to arm the youth with the necessary skills and understandings to take on the work force in the world of finance and entrepreneurship. The organization was able to reach 160,000 students from more than 250 schools and universities through 5,000 volunteers.
