UAE-based Nirvana Travel & Tourism has introduced an initiative that aims to generate job opportunities for people of determination, in partnership with the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) of Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi 2019.
Welcoming Nirvana Travel & Tourism’s initiative, chief commercial officer, Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi 2019, Rashed Abdulla said: “It is great to see companies such as Nirvana Travel & Tourism working to integrate People of Determination into the workplace.
“People of determination provide a unique skillset and are an invaluable asset to any team. We look forward to seeing many more organisations across the region following in the footsteps of Nirvana and working toward a more inclusive future over the coming months.”
The UAE will welcome more than 7,500 athletes from over 190 nations for Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi 2019 between March 14-21. They will compete in 24 officially sanctioned Olympic-style sports in what will be the first World Games to be held in the Middle East and North Africa. It will also be the most unified Games in the 50-year history of the Special Olympics movement, with inclusion of people of determination with intellectual disabilities in every aspect of the event.
