As part of its conscientious efforts to strengthen the education sector in the sultanate, Khimji Ramdas Group’s (KR) Eshraqa has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Ministry of Education (MoE), to enhance the infrastructure of government schools in Wilayat Dima Watayeen, by equipping them with Smart Televisions, Smart Interactive Boards, Desktops and Security Cameras.
The MoU was signed by Nailesh Khimji, Director, Khimji Ramdas Group, and His Excellency Majid bin Said Al Bahri, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Education for Administrative and Financial Affairs at the third Oman Science Festival, held at the Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre (OCEC). By providing digital amenities such as Smart Televisions and Interactive Boards, Eshraqa aims to help the schools make lessons more engaging, interactive and productive for both students and teachers.
Commenting on the MoU, Nailesh Khimji, Director, Khimji Ramdas Group said, “In line with Oman’s Vision 2040 goals, our constant support to ‘education’ comes as a continuation of Eshraqa’s initiatives to develop and improve the sector, by providing infrastructure that is at par with modern education globally. The infrastructure and learning environment of schools have a direct impact on students and teachers, and on the quality of education. This MoU is thus an endeavour to empower students; and support the efforts of educators in Dima Watayeen, to deliver a comprehensive educational experience that will positively contribute to the future of Omani youth and strengthen the sultanate’s human capital.”
Expressing her appreciation, His Excellency Majid bin Said Al Bahri, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Education for Administrative and Financial Affairs mentioned: “Children across the country deserve a quality education to embark on their life’s journeys successfully and become the leaders of tomorrow. We thank Khimji Ramdas’ Eshraqa for their commitment to the development and progress of local communities; and urge other private sector companies to participate in similar efforts that help strengthen the education sector.”
As a body that focuses on community well-being in multiple capacities, Eshraqa has and will always support learning initiatives as part of its core belief to build better communities through education. Under its core pillar ‘Eshraqa Learns’ the team has delivered a broad range of initiatives across Oman, since its inception in 2016, and has supported 82 government schools across five wilayats namely Samail, Bidbid, Izki, Ibra, and Bidiyiah.
Built on the premise that the private sector has a responsibility towards the development of local communities and empowering talented individuals in the Sultanate, Eshraqa works toward nation-building at the grassroots. It aspires to contribute meaningfully to the education sector by building infrastructure that will lead to the enhancement of knowledge, skills, and capabilities in society.
