08 February 2016

In line with its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) goals and strong commitment towards promoting the culture of giving to ensure comprehensive social development in the Sultanate of Oman, National Aluminium Products Company SAOG (NAPCO), one of the leading extruders of aluminium profiles in the GCC, recently donated 12 computer devices to Child Corner, an Omani non-profit educational institution located in Al Qaryatayn, Izki. The charitable initiative will support the current expansion of Child Corner’s headquarters to establish a one-stop educational centre equipped with the latest technologies and digital devices to facilitate an improved learning environment for needy children in neighbouring areas.

Robert Holtkamp, CEO, NAPCO, commended the pivotal role played by Child Corner in supporting local efforts to eradicate illiteracy in children by providing them with necessary competences and basic skills. This would not only help them build a better future for themselves and their families and improve their lifestyles, but also contribute effectively to the social, economic and cultural development of Oman.

“We believe that literacy is no longer limited to reading and writing in today’s era of information and communication technology (ICT), but has extended to include skills and knowledge related to computers and the internet, which has become an integral part of our everyday lives. ICT has become an essential tool for building knowledge-based societies that are able to drive smart transformation and address the challenges of ongoing global developments and innovations. We have offered 12 computer devices to Child Corner as a significant move to bolster efforts to eliminate illiteracy and help children acquire the competences and potential they need to be effective members of the local and international community and raise Oman’s flag high in regional and international events,” added Holtkamp.

The Child Corner is a non-profit educational institution specialized in empowering needy children with basic learning skills. The institution’s new headquarters is currently being established in Al Qaryatayn in Izki and will offer classes for reading, writing, mathematics, and memorization of the Quran in addition to a number of recreational activities.
