Following interviews with all candidates, the 4-week internship program started yesterday, 15th June, whereas fifteen Interns were placed in various government and tourism sectors across Ajman. The initiative was launched under the patronage of Sheikh Abdulaziz bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Chairman of Ajman Tourism Development Department, and was announced during an Iftar gathering, in the presence of HE Saleh Mohamed Al Geziry, Director General of ATDD, and a number of directors and senior officials from the government and tourism sector. HE Saleh Mohamed Al Geziry, Director General of ATDD, said: "We have decided to launch the "Zayed Humanitarian Day" as a valuable opportunity to express our commitment to social responsibility and empowering people of determination with the tools they need to take job opportunities in various government and tourism sectors. This initiative comes in line with the Year of Giving, and is aimed at promoting the culture of giving in future generations, strengthening social security, and achieving solidarity."  The kick of event was hosted in Al Zorah on Wednesday and attended by all Interns and their families, who gathered for Iftar at the Thanani restaurant, the official sponsor of the evening event. Amy Siviter-Smith, General Manager of Thanani, said: "Giving back to the community is something that Thanani sees as every corporate organisation's responsibility, so to be able to play host to a noble initiative conceived by the Ajman Tourism Development Department, marking Sheikh Zayed Humanitarian Day, is a privilege. Extending disabled people the opportunity to take up a one-month internship placement in the hospitality sector is an extremely positive step and hopefully one, that will see more of them finding their way into the work environment." To encourage the initiative, the Ajman Executive Council, as well as ATDD, each offered an internship placement, with further positions having been filled in some of Ajman's leading hotels. Only through extended support from the Fairmont Ajman, the Ajman Saray, a Luxury Collection Resort, the BAHI Ajman Palace, the Kempinski Hotel Ajman and the Ramada Hotel & Suites, the initiative could successfully be launched, giving an opportunity of empowerment to the people of determination. Francis Desjardins, General Manager of Fairmont Ajman, quoted: "The integration of people with special needs into everyday society is very important and this is an extremely noble cause which we are happy to support.

We are happy to welcome and provide opportunities to people with disability, and enable them to learn new skills to explore potential careers in the hospitality industry. This will surely be an experience of a lifetime, both for our trainees and our team, and we will ensure to impart valuable knowledge, guide them every step of the way, and make them feel that disability is not a hindrance to success and achieving one's goal." On a final note, Michele Frignani, General Manager of the Ajman Saray, a Luxury Collection Resort, added: "It's an honor for Ajman Saray, a Luxury Collection Resort, to be part of People of Determination initiative as it gives us the opportunity to improve their skills by placing them in several departments within the resort.

People of determination have abilities too and this is what the initiative is all about. Making sure those abilities blossom and shine so all the dreams that they have can come true." ATDD is furthermore collaborating with the Ministry of Community Development, to train people of determination for the future, in order to qualify them to enter the job market.The training will be concluded in a closing ceremony on the 16th of July, celebrating the successful completion of the internships, thus strengthening their opportunities in finding permanent employment.Zayed Humanitarian Work Day falls on the 19th day of Ramadan every year in memory of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan (May Allah rest his soul in peace), who passed away on this day.

The FamTrip program is part of our strategy to promote the Emirate of Ajman as a unique tourist destination and provides a platform for our strategic tourism partners to experience what Ajman has to offer. As one of the world’s fastest growing tourism markets, Russia is an important market for us and I am confident that Ajman’s superior hospitality facilities, resorts and hotels, will continue to attract visitors from Russia.” The FamTrip program is in line with the strategic objectives of increasing visitors to the Emirate ahead of Ajman Vision, which, through showcasing a number of Ajman’s major tourism projects and services, aims to make the Emirate one of the world’s top tourist destinations. The FamTrip also comes in line with the ATDD’s ongoing participation in regional and international trade shows and initiatives, which serve to raise the profile of Ajman as a unique destination on the world map, and follows its participation in the Moscow International Travel and Tourism Exhibition (MITT) earlier this year, during which it was agreed to host this very important FamTrip. The ATDD’s figures clearly demonstrate that the number of Russian tourists for 2016 increased by more than 200%, in comparison to the previous year, highlighting Ajman’s popularity and high demand. “The FamTrip will allow us to strengthen our relationship with Russia’s leading travel and tourism agencies, enabling us to harness strategic trade relationships and promote the Emirate and its world-class tourist sites, services and attractions. We are honoured to invite Natalie Tours to experience the spirit of Ajman, which is reflected in our destination brand “Sincerely Emirati”, and sample the true spirit of modern Emirati hospitality. Our mission is to instil the image of Ajman as an emirate with rich tourist, natural and cultural components, helping us to raise the profile of our unique tourist destination and increase the number of visitors in the future,” he added.  On their final evening yesterday, the delegation gathered at the Fairmont Ajman for a farewell Iftar dinner, concluding the end of the FamTrip.
