EWC is not the first event that MiSK has launched in support of Saudi Arabia youth, particularly during these unprecedented times that has seen the nation’s young minds having to put many of their aspirations on hold. Prior to this event, MiSK launched the “Never Disconnect” online campaign website earlier in 2020, as an extension to its role in supporting education and development. The platform was created as a hub for MiSK’s diverse initiatives and programs, enabling anyone to easily access and benefit from available educational and developmental opportunities.
Misk is offering exciting initiatives “that seek to turn this crisis into an opportunity and promote the participation of all society members in community service through various training and volunteering opportunities.”https://t.co/YAfv0E1Zyc— About Her (@AboutHerOFCL) April 23, 2020
