BOSTON: Omar Kutayba Alghanim, Group CEO of Alghanim Industries, has been recognized by JA (Junior Achievement) Worldwide for his breakthrough efforts to foster creativity, critical thinking, and business skills among youth in the Middle East.
One of the world’s largest youth-serving non-profit organizations, JA Worldwide honored Mr. Alghanim at its 100th anniversary gala, held in Boston, Massachusetts, on May 2, 2019. The organization cited his record of launching and leading INJAZ Al-Arab, a JA-affiliated organization that supports education and entrepreneurship for students in the region. A Co-Founder and first Chairman of INJAZ Al-Arab, Mr. Alghanim also chairs its country chapter, INJAZ Kuwait.
INJAZ prepares students in three principal areas: work readiness, financial literacy, and entrepreneurship. Engaging local business leaders to act as volunteer mentors, INJAZ bridges the gap between the classroom and the real world. In its signature program, a six-month experience culminates in a business competition where program participants pitch their business ideas to a panel of judges drawn from the private sector.
