Held in coordination with the Ajman Women Business Council and the American University of Cairo, the programme is aimed at creating future businessmen and women who would contribute to the country's development.

Addressing a Press conference at the foundation's premises, Dr Amna Khalifa, Director-General of the Shaikh Humaid Al Nuaimi Foundation, said that the project is targeted at ambitious young men and women who want to be a part of the business society. She explained that 25 men and women will be selected to participate in the programme based on specific standards set by the Youth Development Section of the foundation. All the participants will be awarded diplomas from the American University of Cairo at the completion of the course.

The programme, conducted by experts from the American University of Cairo, is be held from February 18 to March 29 at the foundation's premises. It will consist of practical and theoretical classes in which participants will learn how to take the first step in the field of business by establishing their own small and medium businesses as well as enhance their skills to manage such business projects. It will also educate the youth on how to analyse the market and prepare proposal studies for their new projects.

The programme will cover three topics — proposal studies, marketing, accounting and finance management, which will help young business people acquire the self-confidence needed to compete in the UAE market.

Khalid Muglad, representative of the American University of Cairo, said that the programme, which has been conducted several times in the UAE has proved very beneficial for the participants.

Speaking to Khaleej Times, Dr Amna Khalifa said that the Ajman business council aims to support the business projects of the youths. The council will financially support those who do not have enough funds to establish their own projects and also help others who can finance their projects by facilitating the procedures for establishing their businesses. “The foundation has adopted the project as part of its main objective of human resource and youth development, in terms of economic, social, health and humanitarian affairs,” she added.
