Author to Donate Proceeds of Book Sale to ‘Educate A Child Programme’
Maryam Al-Mansoori, author of The 4ourth Floor: Career Counsel for Navigating the Corporate Maze published by Hamad Bin Khalifa University Press (HBKU Press), signed an agreement with Educate A Child (EAC), a programme of the Education Above All Foundation, to which the proceeds from the sale of her book will be donated for an entire year.
Educate A Child is a global initiative launched by HH Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, which aims to significantly reduce the number of children worldwide denied their right to education. It believes strongly that all children must have every opportunity to survive and thrive in education. Ultimately, EAC is a commitment to provide out of school children with opportunities to learn. It contributes to the UN Sustainable Development Goal 4: to ensure inclusive and quality education for all and to promote lifelong learning.
Al-Mansoori joins a long list of high-profile supporters of this initiative to help marginalised children across the globe realise their right to education by eliminating the obstacles they face.
Empowered by the belief in the importance of supporting education, its noble goals, and in understanding the crucial role that education plays in the development of nations and as a means to combat illiteracy and poverty, I decided to dedicate the proceeds of The 4ourth Floor to Educate A Child, to defend children’s rights to education all over the world.’
The 4ourth Floor, available in English and Arabic, aims to help readers critically consider their careers and evaluate how the choices they make today define their future. It targets anyone who has ever questioned their career path or wondered how to distinguish themselves from other employees by encouraging readers to actively participate in shaping their career based on their personal goals, instead of blindly following the path set before them. It provides practical tips on how to deal with a variety of workplace situations and each chapter addresses a problem head on.
Al-Mansoori provides pearls of wisdom based on personal experiences during her years as a management consultant in major companies across varying industries. The book is well-structured and articulate.
