“Almost every successful person begins with two beliefs: the future can be better than the present, and I have the power to make it so.”

INJAZ is a non-profit (NPO), non-governmental organization (NGO) driven by Kuwait's private sector. Through strategic partnerships with Kuwait's business and education sectors, and with the help of qualified and dedicated volunteers, INJAZ delivers educational programs on entrepreneurial and leadership skills aimed at inspiring and educating future generations.

The students of class 12 were immensely blessed to have a chance at participating in the Career Success programme offered by them.

In 7 sessions held on every Thursday, headed by the volunteer Mr Ashley D’Silva, the students have equipped themselves with tricks for their success in the working field and plausible future endeavours. Mr Ashley, the HR Manager of Al-Yasra Foods, dedicated his heart and soul in maturing the students into potential successful engineers, doctors, businessmen and so on and so forth by engaging them in hands-on activities in teams and sharing his work and life experiences. He taught children in a very friendly comfortable manner.
