Sahel Dudin, the CEO of Ayla Resort, told Jordan News that Ayla’s social responsibility programs all fall under one theme: empowerment.

He said that this training program implemented by the Academy helps a group of members of the local community and provides them with the necessary knowledge to enter the labor market. He praised ASEZA’s thorough and ongoing collaboration with Ayla and other private partners in Aqaba.

“Ayla is working to build effective partnerships with the aim of joining efforts in serving the local community, in the sectors of education and vocational training, as well as the health sector and direct aid,” said Dudin, “based on its belief that building the skills and capabilities of young people in the city of Aqaba is the best way to develop and develop communities, which will be reflected on education, health and well-being of the individual.”

Dudin pointed out that Makarim Academy, one of Ayla’s arms dedicated to education and specialized training, is developing programs aimed at providing the local market with the required competencies in promising sectors in the national economy such as hospitality, hotel and renewable energy. They work simultaneously to enhance the skills of young people to support them in entering the labor market and using the latest technologies such as models. The program uses simulations of hotel rooms to harmonize its theoretical curricula with practical application.

One marine lifeguard, Muhammad Barakat, also underlined the importance of such workshops in raising the efficiency of marine lifeguards and developing their skills in dealing with various accidents and cases.
