Jotun Paints UAE partners with Al Noor Training Center

by Madaline Dunn

Jotun Paints UAE has announced that it has partnered with Al Noor Training Centre for Persons with Disabilities under the “Adopt a Class” initiative.

This initiative aims to support less-privileged families and empower children of determination with comprehensive education opportunities. Further, it enables Jotun to support the Primary Yellow classroom in Dubai’s legacy institution for people of determination through financial sponsorship, enhancement of facilities and more to promote safe, inclusive and accessible learning environments for those in need.

Jotun shared that as part of the partnership, it has committed to contributing a financial donation of AED 405,000 over three years, which will assist in offering holistic training for children of determination through a range of professional disciplines.

The contributions will also assist in recovering the centre’s deficits from student discounts, contribute to the Centre’s consistent provision of quality services and provide opportunities to the corporate sector to support the cause of People of Determination.

Jotun’s efforts for the Primary Yellow classroom will directly assist eight children of determination aged between seven and nine years with conditions such as Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Epilepsy, various intellectual disabilities and more.

It has also repainted the entire classroom interior to encourage positivity and innovation, it said.

The paint used was the Fenomastic Wonderwall Lux, the region’s first washable matt paint with no smell or harmful chemicals. Further, it said it actively purifies the air, and improves the indoor air quality for students and training centre personnel.

Commenting on Jotun’s contribution, the Director of Al Noor Training Centre for Persons with Disabilities, Ranjini Ramnath, said: “Jotun’s sponsorship of the Primary Yellow class has allowed Al Noor to enhance the learning environment and experiences of the students in the class in ways that would not have been possible otherwise. Through their support, Jotun Paints has transformed the classroom, creating a more stimulating and inspiring atmosphere for our students to thrive in.”

Meanwhile, Kjetil Urheim, the General Manager of Jotun Paints UAE, said: “Jotun Paints UAE is proud to support the Al Noor Training Centre for Persons with Disabilities as we believe that every child is special and has unique abilities. By supporting them, we not only empower them with essential skills and future career opportunities, but we nurture their resilience which is vital in breaking stereotypes and making the next generation of this nation a more inclusive and accessible society. We hope our endeavours paint smiles on their faces and profoundly impact their lives.”

The brand previously financially sponsored two children’s education from 2015 to 2021 with a contribution of AED 45,000 per year to support their continued rehabilitation and education.

The brand also provided critical crisis support during the COVID-19 pandemic through fundraising, supplied paint donations and empowered children from the training centre to showcase and sell handmade products at Jotun’s UAE facilities through a program named the ‘Al Noor Bazaar’.

Jotun shared that it will also soon be organising a corporate day wherein employees can volunteer and interact with the students at the training centre while embracing inclusivity and supporting their learning journey first-hand.
