Manama, Bahrain:- BENEFIT, the Kingdom’s innovator and leading company in Fintech and electronic financial transactions service, has announced their sponsorship of the International Conference and Exhibition for the “People of Determination” taking place on the 13th and 14th of September, 2022 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel’s Convention Centre. The event will be held under the patronage of His Highness Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa, His Majesty the King's Envoy for Humanitarian Work and Youth Affairs.
The conference, hosted by the National Society for the Support of Education and Training, provides an excellent opportunity to showcase and explore the finest and latest innovations, technologies, products and services in the special needs field from across the world, which will improve the lives of people with disabilities. Parents with special needs children will be exposed to societies, associations, and centers aimed at "People of Determination", in addition to receiving a free psychological and educational evaluation from professionals and consultants at the event.
The event seeks to create awareness among all segments of society, particularly parents and guardians, academic and scientific organizations, researchers and professionals, persons with special needs, and other individuals and organizations in the Kingdom. Furthermore, it also aims to contribute to the integration of "People of Determination" in several sectors, with the hopes of incentivizing organizations in both public and private sectors to provide employment opportunities for these gifted people, as well as to raise awareness on the multiple categories of "People of Determination," which include autism, learning difficulties such as dyslexia and ADHD, Down Syndrome, mild mental retardation, physical disabilities, hearing and visual impairments, and others
Adel Al-Kooheji Seniors Manager PR & Corporate Communications, at BENEFIT, commented on the initiative, “We are thrilled to be supporting the International Conference and Exhibition for the “People of Determination” as sponsors. This is an initiative that takes concrete measures toward identifying Bahrain's special needs landscape and provides a networking platform for all leaders involved in the inclusion and empowerment of people with special needs across the country, and it is a true honor to be a part of it. Our vision at BENEFIT is perfectly aligned with this effort, as we aspire to shape the future of society, inspire individuals to unleash their power, and to unlock new opportunities, and this would not be feasible without a commitment to integrating people with special needs into mainstream society.”
