In April, HCT Fujairah Women’s College (FWC) Diploma students showed why they are dynamic citizens!
110 graduating students used their project planning and customer service skills to help their communities for a day, completing 22 community service projects in the East Coast Region.
Students contacted local charities, businesses, and community organizations to arrange their projects to ensure the best use of their skills to benefit others. Then they went out and helped care for the poor, sick, elderly, handicapped and youth.
Their community service projects included: cleaning and refurbishing homes for the poor; facilitating learning activities for the handicapped; cleaning beaches; conducting healthy lifestyle programs; and caring for the elderly.
Organizations that benefited from their services were hospitals, schools, local clubs, individual families, and the community who uses public parks and beaches.
These projects encouraged FWC Diploma students to continue making an impact in their communities by helping those less fortunate.
Hanan Mohammed, Assistant Manager, KhorFakkan Center for the Handicapped, said: “We hope that FWC students will continue helping our center as they can make a real difference in the lives of our residents. They were so happy interacting with FWC students in doing entertaining learning activities together. After the students left, the residents still had smiles on their faces and wished the students had stayed longer!”
Chris Chong, Business Faculty member said: ”Volunteer projects in the community gives opportunities for students to practice their professional behavior skills in authentic contexts. Many of my students exceeded my expectations in the delivery of their projects.”
