Dubai’s education tourism initiative boosts growth opportunities for Nigerian students
To boost education opportunities for Nigerian students, the Dubai Tourism Corporation for Commerce Marketing (DTCCM), under its education tourism initiative, CLR education consulting, in partnership with Princewill Trust, has officially announced the winners of the 2021 Vision and Success Opportunity Challenge.
The winners of the challenge which was designed to help current Nigerian university undergraduates and postgraduates imagine realistic career models and investigate how to shift from concept to reality while still pursuing their studies are, Soruchi Nwanodi, Samuel Onyeocha, Melford Ekene, and Deborah Ibaningo.
The winners were rewarded with a group trip to Dubai in September 2021 which comprises an economy round trip flight ticket – origination Port Harcourt, Hotel accommodation for six-nights with breakfast, lunch and dinner. Also, Visa Entry Permit, COVID-19 tests, ground transportation in Dubai, airport transfer in Dubai and operational/leisure tours.
Created by Princewill Trust, the Vision and Success Opportunity Challenge is a forum where ambitious young leaders pitch ideas and strategies for furthering their vision and success in life.
Speaking on the initiative, Market Lead for Africa, Salim Mohamed Dahman said: “The city of Dubai was chosen for this challenge to gain first-hand knowledge of a global business hub known for its great vision, hospitality, and commerce. The tour is also intended to introduce winners to the next step in their vision and success journey, including learning resources and post-graduation opportunities in Dubai.”
Founder, Princewills Trust, Prince Tonye Princewill said: “We would have loved to have more people go, but the standards are high and this aspect will never be compromised. Lighthouses do not move for ships, it is the other way round. It took a huge effort by Stella Fubara-Obinwa and her team in Dubai Tourism, and Nneka Oduah and her team at CLR, to pull this off. For that, I am truly grateful. However, Princewills Trust will continue to support initiatives like this, with a view to further promote the next generation of our Rivers youths.”
