Yesterday, Maldives Airports Company Limited (MACL) announced the conclusion of its internship programme for children with disabilities, held from 1 May to 31 July 2023 in collaboration with the Care Society.
During this time, four students from the Care Society were offered an opportunity to undergo training and gain work experience at Velana International Airport. This initiative is a component of MACL’s social responsibility efforts.
A ceremony was held at the airport, where the Managing Director and CEO of MACL, Mahjoob Shujau, handed over completion certificates to the interns. This event was attended by heads from various MACL departments and the Care Society.
Participants in the three-month programme received a monthly allowance and were assigned tasks across different sections of MACL, ranging from daily administrative duties to customer service. Supervisors provided oversight, ensuring that the interns had an informative work experience.
Speaking at the ceremony, Hassan Areef, the General Manager of Corporate Communications at MACL, stated, “This programme embodies our company’s dedication to empower and consistently support the disabled within our community. Beyond offering practical work experience, we aim to pave the way for these young individuals to confidently step into the workforce.”
Looking forward, the company is fervently planning more community-centric projects, with an emphasis on sustainable development, for the forthcoming year.
