Juhayna constantly works to build a sustainable and positive relationship with its community, client base and employee pool. Below are some of our projects that come under ‘People’.
Juhayna signed a protocol of cooperation with the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ)
Where the latter agreed to provide financial and advisory support to Juhayna over the course of two years in support of our efforts to achieve gender equality.

We aim to continue building a diverse workplace and providing equal opportunities for women’s advancement by developing the skills and abilities of our female employees. After two years of assessment, Juhayna kicked off two projects with GIZ and EconoWin. The first program is a Mentorship program that aims to enhance the career development of the company’s female employees and the second project is the Gender Diversity Charter to be distributed to all employees through different internal mediums.
