MBI Al Jaber Foundation Sponsors the Socotra Training Centre

At the beginning of 2008, the MBI Al Jaber Foundation provided funding towards the updating of the Computer Room at the Soqotra Training Centre in Yemen, adding new computers and ancillary equipment. This continues the support given by the Foundation in the previous academic year. The Training Centre has been teaching English and Computer Studies, operating on the island for 7 years.

In the academic year 2007/08 a total of 120 students received training in English at 5 different levels while a further 18 students took part in Computer classes. With the rapid growth of the tourist industry the demand for places at the school continues to outstrip supply. As well as finding employment as tourist guides, in the hotel industry and within Government departments a number of students have already gone on to higher education at Universities in mainland Yemen and Saudi Arabia.
