Villa, Rihab, and Rimal Rotana are pleased to announce the recognition by Gulfood 2014 for their work training programme for special needs students through the “We Inspire” Facebook competition.
The Gulfood “We Inspire” social media competition seeks to recognize businesses that have implemented positive initiatives in our society. The three hotels proudly support their community throughout the year with various CSR projects and are delighted to be the recipient of such a meaningful accolade.
Mr. Kinan Al Ghraoui, the General Manager of the three hotels said: “I would like to thank Gulfood for this recognition and commend Villa, Rihab and Rimal Rotana team for their exceptional contributions in all our initiatives throughout the year, especially in this training programme. Our hotels are always committed to support young students with special needs and make them familiar with the real working environment. Together we must put the most vulnerable at the heart of our actions to achieve a better life for all”.
This initiative, a first-of-its-kind humanitarian project initiated in the UAE in 2009, was launched with an aim to open the door to specialised training of special needs students. Each year, in each of the three hotels the project receives between three and six Rashid Centre students selected by the Centre’s management to receive six to eight months of training under the supervision of the Centre’s social assistance cell and the Human Resource Department of the hotels.
The Gulfood “We Inspire” Award 2014 is an excellent platform to congratulate and recognise companies which have made the greatest CSR contributions to the community.
