English is the key for employment globally
English is a necessity and a way forward for the 21st Century
English at school allows reading/writing skills but VITAL conversation is poor *
Fluency in spoken English builds confidence needed for international standards
abc connects abc graduates to local and international hospitality opportunities for greater financial rewards

Inspirational Aga Khan Quote
"The question is, not only what I have achieved. The question is what have I helped others to achieve? That is the notion of social conscience in Islam."
The Aga Khan (Excerpt of Speech – Maputo, Mozambique, 12 Aug, 1988)
These inspirational words hit a chord, as abcFoundation got established as a not-for-profit organisation to help development of young adults to a globally recognized standard, to enable them to take up employment in the hospitality industry.
abc's core initiative is to impart learning made available by trained abc tutors of a specially developed curriculum "English for Hospitality Professionals" to young adults having completed successful specially designed abc assessment tests. Graduates benefit further through relevant grooming skills and job application skills.
Employment opportunities for abc graduates are made available through an affiliated abc placement company for employment in the UAE if growth in their host countries is not possible.
The end result is gratifying as we witness our graduates going towards further education or employment that had deluded them earlier, or even becoming entrepreneurs. abc does not only benefit graduates financially, but helps eradicate poverty, as their families and indeed society sees a transformation.
