Nirvana Travel & Tourism has launched an initiative aimed at generating job opportunities for people of determination in partnership with the Local Organising Committee (LOC) of Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi 2019.
"We will provide job opportunities for people of determination to help integrate them into the workplace," said Nirvana Travel & Tourism CEO, Alaa Al Ali.
Rashed Abdulla, chief commercial officer at Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi 2019 welcomed the initiative, and said: “People of determination provide a unique skill set and are an invaluable asset to any team.”
The UAE will welcome more than 7,500 athletes from more than 190 nations for the Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi 2019 between 14-21 March.
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.
According to a press statement, 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.
