200 Students in Ajman complete English Live Program
A graduation for 200 preteen students of the English Live program was hosted at the Kempinski Hotel Ajman. English Live is a year-long training program which was run by Action Care for youth at the National Charity School Ajman to help improve their practical English language skills. HSBC CSR manager Dominique Ghazar attended the ceremony and shared her own relevant story of overcoming language learning challenges. Students performed national dances and other songs, gave speeches in English and received their certificates, competition prizes and refreshments.
I must start by saying that I was very hesitant to participate and be a volunteer as I have never been involved in something like this. But doing so has totally changed my thinking. It opened my eyes to see that it was fun being surrounded by children who are so enthusiastic in wanting to learn so much more of not just a language but also interacting with us, all from totally different cultures and background. Yes, I am so glad that I did volunteer, even if I have not made a great impact on their lives, they definitely left me walking out that night with a smile on my face and sweet memories that I will carry with me for a long time. Thank you Action Care for giving me this opportunity.
