The special staff at the cafe underwent a six-month training programme learning about food preparation, hospitality, food services, hygiene, sterilisation and first aid.

It is the first branch of the Bee Cafe outside the ZHO offices and was inaugurated by Abdulla Al Hamed, the DoH chairman.

“We are dedicated to supporting our wise leadership’s vision to foster a more inclusive society for people of determination, offering health-care support and community initiatives that help them pursue their ambitions and achieve their full potential. We are honoured to host the first external branch of the Bee Cafe at our headquarters. Working alongside these talented and resilient individuals will no doubt inspire our own drive and motivation for continuous learning and development,” Al Hamed said following the inauguration.

“At Zayed Higher Organisation for People of Determination, we seek to empower People of Determination across all segments of society. We do this by forging public-private partnerships to enable them to pursue careers they are passionate about. Many people of determination have already been trained to enter the labour market across various fields and have launched several innovative projects, including the Bee Cafe for speciality coffee, which is associated with the unique Bee brand,” said Abdullah Al Humaidan, the ZHO secretary-general.
