For the first time, 10 young UAE nationals identified by the Red Crescent charity and selected by Enoc for this unique cause-related campaign confronted the tests and tasks posed by the challenge. They face a week-long series of inspirational lectures, talks and workshops to prepare them for the courses and practical on the job training that will follow.

Training outfit DCC’s participation in the Enoc Challenge was announced at last Wednesday’s launch by Hussain Sultan, Group Chief Executive and Board Member of the diversified petroleum company. DCC came on board as one of the key partners in this pilot project which aims to stand as a model for further cause-related corporate campaigns in the UAE.

Sultan said: “We hope the participants of the Enoc Challenge will benefit from the centre’s carefully designed modules. These will attempt to unearth their talents and make them confident in the workplace.”

DCC’s Chairman, Dr Ali Al Hammadi, said: “We believe that the Enoc Challenge is the way forward for corporate social responsibility in this region. Companies can do things governments cannot.”
