Doha Bank has joined forces with the International Centre for Sport Security (ICSS) by supporting the Young Professionals Development Programme (YPDP), as part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) to promote skills development and young professionals’ employability.
The new initiative, developed by the ICSS, is aimed at providing fresh graduates and emerging young talents, based in Qatar and globally, with a valuable opportunity to advance their skills and increase employability through gaining professional career experience by being involved in the international projects in the field of safeguarding sport.
With the support of Doha Bank and its dedicated approach to CSR, under the mantra of ‘doing well by doing good’, the programme will award up to eight scholarships annually to young talents, providing them with the opportunity to work on various projects to gain professional experience at the ICSS and its global initiatives such as ‘Save the Dream’.
Working both at the ICSS headquarters in Doha and from remote locations across the world, the YPDP participants will be able to gain experience in diverse international work environments by contributing to projects that are being delivered in collaboration with the UN bodies in areas as promotion of social innovation, use of sport in the humanitarian context and protection of children from mistreatment in sports.
“At Doha Bank, we believe that the YPDP programme will make a real and sustainable impact both in the local community and internationally given that the empowerment of youth is a key element of the Sustainable Development Goals that are put in place by the United Nations to serve as a blueprint to achieve a peaceful and prosperous world by 2030,” Doha Bank CEO Dr R Seetharaman said.
Mohamed Hanzab, chairman of ICSS, said the YPDP scholarships will be a launching pad for many young talents and will create the conditions for improved future employability.
“We trust that the YPDP will have a positive impact on the lives of youth by offering them opportunities to further develop their skills and, through their involvement in our programmes, make a difference in the lives of our beneficiaries across the world,” said Massimiliano Montanari, ICSS CEO.
The Doha Private Banking department which recently re-launched its investment platform, using the Bank of Singapore as a trusted wealth solution provider, sponsors this collaboration to support Qatar local community and beyond, Slim Bouker, head of private banking, said, adding that private banking clients are invited to support ICSS directly with donations to this programme as well.
