QIB and INJAZ Kick Start the second half of the academic year 18/19 in Al Wakra School for Girls

Qatar Islamic Bank (QIB), in collaboration with INJAZ Qatar, kick-started the second half of the academic year 18/19 by presenting the program ‘How Money Works?’ at Al Wakra Independent Secondary School for Girls as part of a larger collaboration between the two entities to educate youth in Qatar on managing their finances.

The program is tailored specifically towards secondary school students as well as university freshmen, aged between 15 and 19, to educate them on how to manage their finances. The sessions explore ways for the students to earn money and manage it prudently by budgeting, saving, and investing. All students participating in the sessions will receive certificates upon completing the program.  

Last month, QIB employees delivered the program to more than 30 female students at Al Wakra Independent Secondary School for Girls. Since the beginning of the current academic school year, the program has been delivered to 220 students across several schools and universities in Qatar. The program is planned to reach 1,250 students over the next three years as part of an exclusive collaboration between QIB and INJAZ Qatar.

Commenting on the successful delivery of the program, Mashaal Abdulaziz Al Derham, Assistant General Manager, Head of Corporate Communications & Quality Assurance at QIB said: “As we progress through our program and increase the number of students it is being offered to, we are pleased with the positive results we are already seeing. Students are actively engaging with the program and showing a high capacity to comprehend the content and understand its practical applications in the finances of the real world”.

She added, “Every student is completing the program with a better understanding of the financial world. We are pleased to have played a central role in this initiative that is increasing financial literacy amongst students and providing them with the right tools to make smart financial decisions in the future.”
