Vodafone showed support to Qatari students in the UK by sponsoring the Eid Charity’s cultural week that aims to keep them connected to Qatari society and values.
The week included lectures and sport, cultural and social events, culminating in a ceremony that celebrated high performing and talented Qatari students. The event that took place at Coventry University gathered more than 350 students and was attended by several VIPs including H.E Yousef Al Khater, Qatar’s Ambassador to the UK; Dr. Mohammed Al Kaabi, Qatar Embassy UK Cultural Attaché, and Mr. Mohamed Al Sadah, Vodafone’s COO.
In his opening note addressing the students, Al Sadah, said: “I am honored to be here representing Vodafone at this gathering that brings together the future leaders of our great nation. Vodafone is one of the world’s largest telecommunications companies and is also a British Company that is very proud to be operating successfully in Qatar, so the support of events such as today’s is a natural fit for us.
“Vodafone Qatar’s priority is to help realize the Qatar National Vision 2030 by building a world-class telecommunications infrastructure and to do whatever we can do to support in the areas of human development, specifically the youth of Qatar. Across our operating companies spanning the globe we have many initiatives and programs that support and empower youth. We understand the youth and go to where they are.”
Al Sadah concluded by saying, ‘For Qatar to continue prospering, a strong ICT environment would be fundamental that is overseen by highly talented professionals. He urged the students to pursue education and careers in this field with the hope of welcoming some of them to the Vodafone family.’
