Omani contractor walks away with top honours at gala Muscat ceremony for Empowerment of Women programme
Douglas OHI has picked up the award for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Initiative of the Year at the Construction Week Oman Awards 2019 in Muscat.
The company’s six-month Empowerment of Women programme was praised by judges for helping orphaned girls to learn and develop new skills and create self-employment opportunities.
Douglas OHI's award rounds off a successful 12 months for the contractor, which picked up the same trophy at the Construction Week Awards 2018 in Dubai last December.
Larsen & Toubro was the finalist in the category after introducing 11 CSR initiatives in Oman between February and December 2018. These included providing yoga classes, making blood donations, and cleaning some of the country’s most important wadis.
The gala awards ceremony was held at the Kempinski Hotel Muscat on Monday, 25 March, 2019.
