Waqfe, a leading Bahrain based Fintech solutions provider, recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the non-profit organization, AIESEC.

The agreement is certainly in line with both our organizations ambitions to support and create new opportunities for young Bahrainis to advance their careers. The work put in by AIESEC to develop and support young leaders has been immense over the years. By working together, Waqfe and AIESEC will be able to create more opportunity for the Bahraini youth to develop their careers in top organizations from across the world.”

Speaking on the occasion, Hasan Alnoaimi, the Program Director of Incoming Global Entrepreneur at AIESEC said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Waqfe for this internship program which gives young Bahrainis an opportunity to experience various diverse and unique work environments from across the world. I am confident the interns will be able to reap great benefits through the internship program, as it will equip them for the challenges they will have to face in a high performance work environment.”

So far through the Loyalty Program, over 400 internships have been successfully secured at various corporate organizations and over 800 internships are in line to be placed in the coming months. Gaining immense support from several corporates and institutions across industries throughout the region, the Loyalty Program will be using the support to create over 5,000 new opportunities for young Bahrainis to advance their careers by 2020.
