National Aluminium Products Company SAOG (NAPCO), one of the leading extruders of aluminum profiles in the GCC, has donated complete sets of school uniforms to Dar Al Atta’a for the 2015/2016 academic year. NAPCO’s active support to the Oman-based charity organization is in line with its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives. Two sets of school uniforms were recently distributed to 125 kids across the country.
The program was organized under Dar Al Atta’a’s Education Care Division. The ages of the student beneficiaries varied from Grades 1 to 12. Aside from the uniform set, the children were also provided with various other educational provisions such as school bags and stationery. The students will be putting their new supplies to use in the coming weeks as Classes 1 to 11 are set to start on August 23, 2015, with Class 12 to commence in the following two weeks.
Robert Holtkamp, CEO, NAPCO said: “It is an honor to be in partnership with Dar Al Atta’a in this program. We commend the charity organization for its tireless efforts to enhance and empower people through their wide range of projects. We are especially eager to support Dar Al Atta’a in their educational initiatives, which complement our CSR objectives and its strong emphasis on providing academic assistance to children. We believe that ensuring the proper instruction of the youth is essential to establishing a sustainable future and we are committed to doing all in our power to positively contribute to this cause.”
Established in 2002, Dar Al Atta’a is a non-profit volunteer-based charity group formally registered with Oman’s Ministry of Social Development. Dar Al Atta’a aims to provide comprehensive services according to the needs of underprivileged men, women and children across the sultanate to help them rise above their situation. Dedicated to helping the community, Dar Al Atta’a has a number of activities aside from its educational programs directed towards Family Welfare, Empowerment, Disaster Relief, and Islamic Values.
NAPCO and Dar Al Atta’a have enjoyed a strong partnership in the past a result of both group’s unwavering commitment to positively impact society. The donation is the most recent in their long string of united efforts over the last year. This latest program will greatly benefit struggling students who are enrolled in academic institutions in Muscat, Dhofar, Battinah and Dhakiliya Governorate areas.
