The Royal English Language Centre is pleased to announce its corporate social responsibility initiative working hand in hand with the Dubai Foundation for Women and Children (DFWAC). Commencing in the final quarter of December 2013, The Royal English Language Centre has established the offering of its first KHDA accredited English Language teaching services to the clients of the DFWAC.

Established in 2007 by HH Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid, the DFWAC is the first licensed non-profit shelter in the UAE for women and children victims of domestic violence, child abuse and human trafficking.

Mariam Tokempash, Managing Director at The Royal English Language Centre states, ‘We hope to establish a long standing relationship of community service with the DFWAC, and this is just the first step of what we envision to be a helpful and skills building humanitarian service to society.’

The English language programme which runs for a period of two months, has been custom designed by The Royal English Language Centre for the clients of the DFWAC so that it focuses predominantly on speaking and listening skills. In this way, clients are able to actively use their newly gained skills set to enable them to communicate within society once they leave the foundation.

Noura Al Jarwan, activities coordinator at the DFWAC played a key role in making the whole initiative come to life as she proactively contacted The Royal English Language Centre quoting ‘ I was searching for an institute that offers good quality English language classes and I preferred that English should be the instructors native tongue’.

Furthermore, Noura adds, ‘Our clients will benefit greatly, as English is now the most spoken language in the UAE. Knowing the language and speaking it fluently is a must for most jobs, and our clients mostly search for new jobs and a fresh start after leaving the foundation.’

All English classes are conducted onsite at the DFWAC, enabling the maximum number of clients to benefit from attending the programme. Furthermore, course content is tailored to meet the everyday needs and requirements of the clients communication needs, including useful vocabulary and real life phraseology.

Fiona Tokempash, who is the Director of Learning and Head Trainer at The Royal English Language Centre chose to personally conduct the charitable training services herself, stating that ‘It’s a pleasure to contribute to a programme which aspires to and facilitates a pathway towards a bright future for all members of our shared society.’

After successfully completing the two month English language learning programme, clients will be presented with a certificate and both parties aim to continue with subsequent English language courses, in order to further benefit both new and existing clients of the DFWAC.
