MUSCAT , OMAN, July 15, 2018 / — Al Jisr Foundation visits Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) and United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) in New York after signing the UN Global Compact earlier this year. The UN Global Compact is the largest corporate sustainability initiative in the world and CERF is a humanitarian fund established by the United Nations General Assembly in the year 2005.
Being one of CERF’s donors, the directors of the Al-Jisr foundation met the chief of the CERF secretariat Lisa Doughten in her office to enhance the relationship between both the organisations and to discuss potential future co-operation on international sustainable projects including the possible new areas that can be focussed and ventured. These initiatives definitely has given Al-Jisr Foundation a global reach as its projects focusses outside of its home country Oman.

Zaher Al Hosni, Director of Miras Investment, Mazaya Oman and Al Jisr Foundation said, “the only way for us to see a positive change in our future is if we all come together and work as a nation. Only after understanding our differences and seeing how our differences can be made advantageous, we will be able to create a bigger positive impact in the world.”

Then the directors met Alex Stein, Managing Director, Foundation for the Global Compact & Chief Financial Officer, UN Global Compact.

After signing the UNGC, it was important for Al Jisr Foundation Directors to have an insight on the procedures, policies and best practices for an efficient implémentation process. Moreover, this complements Al Jisr Foundation’s new strategy which focuses on sustainable projects in healthcare and education. Furthermore, the next agenda will be to promote UNGC in the country of Oman and its region by being a role model and enhance their partnership with CERF.
