ExxonMobil Egypt, one of the leading companies in the Egyptian energy market, held a special ceremony to honor its employees, who volunteered in three different community initiatives during 2021, in light of the company’s strategy to achieve sustainable development by developing the capabilities of young people in various fields, the company announced.
During the celebration, ExxonMobil Egypt’s Chairman and Managing Director Amr Abou Eita expressed his gratitude and appreciation to the volunteers for the time and effort they offered to share their practical experience with students. He noted that the company’s vision for community development is based on exchanging knowledge, emphasizing that volunteer work is an essential basis for the success of any initiative.
Meanwhile, ExxonMobil Egypt’s Director of Government and External Relations Youssef Hafez said that this honor is a confirmation of the company’s strategy aimed at investing in society. It also confirms the company’s leadership in supporting the communities where it operates, as a contribution to building youth capabilities in order to achieve sustainable development. This also reflects the company’s belief that today’s youth are tomorrow’s leaders who will help achieve Egypt’s Vision 2030.
The number of employees who volunteered to participate in the company’s community initiatives for 2021 only reached 49, as volunteers spent more than 400 hours of their time to train and educate nearly 1,000 Egyptian students and youth, in the context of consolidating the concept of volunteering.
The celebration included honoring the ExxonMobil Egypt team, which participated in the judging committees of the Enactus Egypt competition. The competition aims to develop education and promote entrepreneurship. The ceremony further honored volunteers in the jury of the company’s Injaz Egypt program competition at Alexandria University, which is a university youth program that aims to develop entrepreneurial skills among student teams.
The ceremony also witnessed the honoring of ExxonMobil Egypt’s team, who volunteered to participate in the MECA initiative for Ain Shams University engineering students. This initiative aimed to eliminate the gap between academic knowledge and practical experience by teaching many important subjects on the job market.
Moreover, it honored the team from the company’s factory located in the 10th of Ramadan City, who hosted a group of Cairo University students working on their graduation projects and theses for about a year with the purpose of sharing experience and knowledge.
