Through Jusoor, a corporate social responsibility initiative created by Orpic, Vale and Sohar Aluminium, the CSR efforts of our companies are being combined for the benefit of the communities within our immediate areas of operations. Jusoor has initiated a number of human capacity development projects in the North Al Batinah region since its inception, including:
A series of projects to complement the Omanisation efforts being made by the Government and private sector. These structured training programmes (varying from one to two years) are aimed at providing young Omanis with the knowledge and skills needed for the labour market.
Jusoor Enrichment Programme:
This commenced in January 2013, with the aim of cascading knowledge amongst our Omani youth in North Al Batinah in the field of entrepreneurship. It also provides career guidance with the objective of contributing to the graduate’s readiness for joining the labour market.
Jusoor Volunteerism Program:
A three month training programme was initiated to teach trainees how to sew. 50 trainees were given sewing machines for their personal use, which will help them develop their skills and make their own homemade tailored products.
Industrial Tailoring Workshop:
Following the tailoring training programme which commenced in 2012, the foundation aims to establish an Industrial Tailoring Incubator that will work mainly on producing work uniforms for the many of the companies in Sohar industrial area.
