Mohammad Mahfouz Shadid: CEO of Connec ME Education said: “Over half of the MENA region’s population is aged under 25 years, so by empowering youths we are actually uplifting the entire region. When you train a youth, you are developing an entire generation. These are not just the leaders of tomorrow but the leaders of today, because we are seeing very young achievers changing the world in business, technology, media, social activism, education and other fields.”
Connec ME Education, together with its business partners will empower youth in the MENA region for them to reach endless possibilities in this challenging business around the globe. When we take care of the youth, we are looking to a bright and better future.

Our youths have the advantage of being highly tech-savvy, very comfortable with using apps, very active on social media and they have their fingers on the pulse of the latest trends worldwide. When you add the region’s high internet, mobile and social media penetration rates, there is no reason why our youths can’t take the lead globally by learning smarter, faster and easier.” With the youth empowered, we are looking at a bright and better generation.
