We take this opportunity to express our appreciation and gratitude to the programme’s sponsors, our Platinum Supporter Ooredoo, and everyone who contributed to the programme’s success. Finally, I congratulate the programme participants on their graduation and wish them continued success and happiness on their journey.”
