As part of its CSR activities, Ramada by Wyndham Downtown Dubai has announced its partnership with Rashid Centre for People of Determination.

Through this cooperation, the hotel will provide internship opportunities to select students from the centre, and train them in different departments including front office, food & beverage, and housekeeping. The tasks per student will be based on his or her skill set, and will be supervised and evaluated by the representatives from the centre.

The team from Ramada Downtown Dubai also committed to spend hours as volunteers at the centre, and host the organisation for special events at the hotel.

Once a month, the property will also offer a complimentary staycation for the students or teachers.

Speaking about this activity, Mark Fernando, general manager, Ramada by Wyndham Downtown Dubai, said: “We are delighted to team up with Rashid Centre for People of Determination, and to pave the way for their students, especially young adults, to make a mark for themselves. It is indeed inspiring to see them realise their potential.”

Five paintings created by the students have already been on display at the hotel’s lobby and at Kenza, its all-day dining restaurant, enabling them to showcase the exceptional talents of the People of Determination. 

“On behalf of the centre, the students and teachers, I would like to express our gratitude to Ramada Downtown Dubai for lending a hand. We always welcome cooperation with the private sector, as they have been instrumental in the success of the centre over the years. We look forward to working with them in transforming the lives of the People of Determination,” said Mariam Othman, director general of Rashid Centre for People of Determination.
