OLA graduation in Saida


In partnership with the Hariri Foundation for Sustainable Human Development and the Lebanese American University (LAU) in Old Saida district, the Outreach Leadership Academy (OLA) hosted a specialized financial training workshop. The 3-day event organized by Eventa with the support of Byblos Bank and Hariri Foundation comes as part of the MoneySmart program that promotes financial knowledge to young people willing to venture into the world of finance and entrepreneurship. Some 80 participants, including both students and graduates from 16 universities in Saida and the South, were introduced to the basic skills aimed at the management and development of their projected businesses. On the closing day of the program, MP Bahiya Hariri stressed in her address to beneficiaries the importance of sustainable training in the empowerment of youth especially at the start of their career life. “The youth represent the future of this country for they motivate us to work harder to create more opportunities that help them establish a better future for them and for the country” she said. For her part, Nina Abi Fadel, founder and director of the events management company, Eventa, pointed out that MoneySmart is designed specifically for young people who are about to enter the professional world in order to equip them with essential capacities needed for controlling their income and stimulate their familiarity with financial matters. The program, Abi Fadel stated, targets young people (aged 20-30 years) about to graduate from colleges or fresh graduates wishing to kick off their own enterprises. (Al Mustaqbal, July 12, 2017)
