We joined hands with the Ministry of Education, Khawater and the schools in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to help students across Saudi Arabia study in a clean and healthy environment
My School, My Responsibility
In 2010 ALBAIK joined forces with the Ministry of Education and Khawater to launch the Feena Khair – ‘My School, My Responsibility’ program encouraging elementary grade students to take pride in maintaining a healthy and clean school environment by spending the last 15 minutes of their school day cleaning their classrooms.
The Feena Khair program seemed to be the perfect way to take Nazeeh & Wartan’s anti-littering message from the city streets into the classrooms. With direction from the Saudi Minister of Education, HH Prince Faisal bin Abdullah Al Saud, the Nazeeh & Wartan campaign team at ALBAIK in cooperation with Khawater’s Ahmed Shuqairy developed a pilot program for two schools in Jeddah during the first phase of the Feena Khair My School, My Responsibility program.
The pilot program held in cooperation with Al Noor Educational Complex and Dar Al Fikr schools proved to be a huge success and was in turn extended to 52 more schools in 2011.
Feena Khair … My School My Responsibility program was further developed for the participating schools in the Makkah Al Mukarramah Region with the involvement of teachers and principals, who were trained to deliver the campaign message to students – to Sort, Straighten, Shine, Standardize and Sustain their classrooms at the end of each day, as part of their school curriculum. Standards and guidelines were also developed to help assess participating schools and classrooms with selected schools being audited every month and the winning classrooms were recognized accordingly. At the end of the year the top 3 schools were recognized by the Ministry and partners.
Over 1280 schools in Saudi Arabia have participated in the 2013 – 2014 school year campaign with the participation of over a million students and 30,000 teachers.
