Company keen on supporting, developing tech innovation ecosystem
KUWAIT: Zain, the leading digital service provider in Kuwait, concluded its strategic partnership of the CODED Hackathon, a 24-hour coding challenge that aimed at boosting participants’ coding skills in a unique academic and social setting.
Zain’s extended strategic partnership with CODED comes in line with its corporate sustainability strategy towards the education sector, through which the company is keen on contributing to the development and advancement of the tech innovation ecosystem within all age groups to boost their coding and technology skills, as such skills are essential for the modern digital world.
Zain took part in awarding the winners of the CODED Hackathon, which mainly aimed at offering a competitive social environment for the participants throughout 24 continuous hours. The participants had to design innovative solutions to coding challenges within a limited time frame and with limited resources at hand, which boosted their teamwork, problem-solving, leadership, and coding skills.
In July, Zain strategically partnered with the CODED Fresh Grad Boot Camp, which aimed at training fresh university graduates on seven essential programming languages to make them job ready as programmers and developers. Twenty graduates were selected from over 560 applicants from across various universities, and they spent 12 intensive weeks of seminars and workshops supervised by CODED’s team.
Through supporting this unique program, Zain seeks to offer youth the best educational environment in Kuwait to nurture their talents, enrich their skills, and promote tech innovation within them. Zain believes in the important role tech innovation plays in building the future and progressing national economy.
Zain is keen on playing a vital role as an integrated digital service provider in light of the rapid digital changes witnessed by the modern world. The company always seeks to reach new levels of excellence with its customers through offering the best innovative services, meeting their needs and aspirations, as well as supporting programs and initiatives that embrace tech innovation and aim at developing it.
Zain further reaffirms its commitment to supporting any entity that offers the proper educational environment for the next generation as per the highest international standards. The company will spare no efforts in offering its support to such initiatives and programs that serve the community and contribute to the further progress of the country.
Last year, Zain supported the CODED Juniors Summer Camp, which aimed at teaching school children (ages 7-12) the basics of coding languages and technology using the latest tools and gadgets like robots, smart toys, computers, and more, as well as traditional learning methods such as art, drawing, and music. The program featured a fun educational environment that lasted for four weeks in the Space Museum at Sheikh Abdullah Al-Salem Cultural Center.
