Cathay Pacific gets creative with Al Noor Training Centre

10 Jul 2017

The airline’s Dubai-based team extends its support of the non-profit organisation for people with special needs

Cathay Pacific has continued its successful partnership with Al Noor Training Centre for Persons with Disabilities by initiating an interactive painting project with students of the non-profit organisation that provides high-quality professional training to the special needs community in Dubai.

During the recent activity led by volunteers of Cathay Pacific’s Dubai-based team, the students learned to use various techniques with art materials donated by the airline to create a world map painting on canvas. The map now hangs in Cathay Pacific’s Dubai office. 

Cathay Pacific Country Manager for UAE & Oman Ashish Kapur said: “Our partnership with Al Noor has continued to flourish and now we have an incredible piece of art created by some very talented students and our staff as a reminder of how important it is to give something back to the local community.” 

Al Noor Training Centre, which was established in 1981 as a non-profit organisation, works tirelessly to support those with special needs in Dubai.

Earlier this year, 25 volunteers from across Cathay Pacific’s management and various departments, including Airport, Cargo, People, Finance, Sales and Engineering, supported a garage sale during Al Noor’s annual fun fair.
