Student Support Update – June 2012

STEPS continues to manage the Tamkeen (‘Empowerment’) fund to support high-achieving students through university, arranging payment of their tuition fees, covering basic daily expenses and providing workshops of motivation and training.

On 23 June 2012, we organized a motivational workshop for Tamkeen beneficiaries at the Marriott Hotel, with the participation of professional speaker Rasha Al Disi who helped prepare students for entering the job market by presenting topics related to how to write a CV and cover letter, how to prepare for interviews, and more.

The event was hosted by the Marriott hotel along with a delicious snack buffet. Students also received mobile phones and flash drives thanks to a generous sponsor.
