BisB and INJAZ Bahrain Launches Second Edition of Future Leaders Camp

Following the success of its first edition, Bahrain Islamic Bank (BisB), the leading provider of Islamic digital banking services in the Kingdom of Bahrain in partnership with INJAZ Bahrain, launched the second edition of its Future Leaders Camp in collaboration with the Ministry of Information, Benefit, Gulf Air and Seef Mall, from the 15th to the 28th of August 2023.

The Camp highlighted BisB’s range of products designed for youth, especially for holders of the Future Leaders wearables, a cashless payment solution that enables parents to track and manage their children’s spending through a prepaid card, the BisB mobile application, or the Bank’s website.

Around 200 students took part in the Future Leaders Camp including a tour of the Bank’s departments and attending educational and recreational trips to the program’s partners organized by INJAZ Bahrain, which aimed to equip the students with a variety of skills and knowledge in financial management and develop their creative thinking and leadership skills through various activities. The participants engaged in a treasure hunt located in Seef Mall – Manama which gave them the opportunity to win immediate cash prizes. The initiative also raised awareness on the importance of preserving the environment by encouraging students to use Future Leaders wearables to buy recyclable eco-friendly goods. During the conclusion of the program, the winning students were honored by the Chief Executive Officer of BisB and INJAZ Bahrain representatives.

Commenting on the occasion, Her Highness Shaikha Hessa bint Khalifa Al Khalifa, Chairperson of INJAZ Bahrain, said: “The second edition of the Future Leaders Camp further strengthens our partnership with BisB and reiterates our ongoing efforts to enhance the skills of up-and-coming youth as we give them the opportunity to enrich their knowledge and refine their skills in an exciting and positive environment.”

Mr. Yaser Alsharifi, Chief Executive Officer of BisB, added: “We were very pleased with the success of the first edition of the Future Leaders Camp. As such, we launched the second edition by expanding on our partnerships with the aim of enriching the program’s agenda and including more interactive sessions. We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to all our partners and look forward to continuously developing the Camp over the coming years by enhancing our partnerships with various entities and organizations.”

On her end, Ms. Fatema AlAlawi, Chief Retail Officer of BisB, said: “The Future Leaders Camp is a unique initiative within the local banking sector that provides participants with the chance to learn the art of financial management. In addition to embedding a culture of saving and other essential skills for future leaders through a diverse range of recreational and educational activities. We look forward to hosting an upgraded third edition next year which will include various events suitable for different age groups.”
