Waha Capital invests positively in future of young Emirati leaders

Abu Dhabi: The ‘Shababna wa Shebna’ summer youth leadership camp, organised by Altaaat Leadership Development has concluded. The camp was attended by a group of 12 young potential Emirati youth leaders and took place for five days on Sir Bani Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.

Sponsored by Waha Capital, a diversified investment management company based in Abu Dhabi, the “Shababna wa Shebna” youth leadership camp featured five interactive days filled with important and life-changing lessons on leadership, taught through a range of fun and adventurous activities that campers were able to try out for the first time in their lives.

Activities included assembling a raft with limited resources and using it to transport members of the camping team across river banks. Campers also went on a safari through the island’s valleys and mountains, where they encountered cheetahs, giraffes, gazelles and a range of other wildlife living on the island.

These activities, along with kayaking, swimming, archery and numerous indoor team-building activities were all organized as part of the camp’s programme to help enrich the targeted learning outcomes for the participating youth.

Speaking on behalf of Waha Capital, Chief Executive Officer Salem Rashid Al Noaimi expressed his delight in having supported this important youth initiative and in Waha Capital’s active support for leadership programmes targeting UAE nationals.
