Dubai: A new book titled the ‘DP World Success Story’ will be used in government and private schools as an introduction to logistics and global trade, DP World announced during the book launch at Raffles School International in Dubai on Monday.
The move is a part of the company’s efforts to support the UAE’s education system.
The book includes details of how the global supply chain works and is aimed at students between grades six to ten.
Using creative storytelling, it tells the story of Saeed, a young publisher, who manages to ship over five million copies of a book from the UAE to different Arab countries.
“As our first official book, DP World Success Story helps broaden the horizons of our children so they can learn about trade and explore career options,” said Mohammad Al Muallem, CEO and managing director of DP World, UAE Region.
The book’s release is part of DP World’s Global Education Programme, launched in 2016 that seeks to introduce children to the world of port operations, logistics, and other related fields. Using DP World volunteers, the programme aims to engage with 34,000 children between the ages of 8-14 by 2020 across its global network of 40 countries and has already been delivered in India, Senegal, the UK, Argentina, and the Philippines.
