Ayla hosted the “Golf Day” event, organized by the ProjectSea voluntary initiative, to promote volunteer work and integrate it with the sport of diving. The event focused on organizing campaigns to collect waste from the sea.
Ayla’s sponsorship of this competition exemplifies its crucial role in preserving the natural life in Aqaba. The goals of the ProjectSea initiative align with Ayla’s efforts as an environmentally friendly project, dedicated to protecting marine resources through a multidimensional strategy. Ayla’s commitment to not disrupting ecological systems is rooted in its unique nature and approach.
Ayla’s support for the “Golf Day” idea, launched by 14-year-old Jordanian golfer Sam’an Akroush, highlights its involvement in local efforts that leverage sports activities to support environmental conservation.
Apart from Ayla, the ProjectSea Golf Day received sponsorship and support from “Cloud 7 Residences Ayla Aqaba,” “Ayla Aqaba Regency Resort,” “Hyatt Amman,” “Hertz Car Rental,” and “Gulf Jewelry.”
At Ayla Academy’s fields, 53 golf players from various nationalities participated in the ProjectSea “Golf Day.” Their collective goal was to protect the environment and rally efforts to preserve marine resources from pollution. The participants managed to raise 7,000 Jordanian Dinars in financial support, which will be directed towards ProjectSea’s projects and programs for public cleanliness in Aqaba’s tourist areas.
Ayla’s Managing Director, Sahl Dudin, expressed his satisfaction with contributing to the mobilization of support for ProjectSea programs, which align with Ayla’s environmental goals. Ayla employs a multidimensional strategy, capitalizing on its location on the Gulf of Aqaba, to implement, sponsor, and support initiatives that preserve the marine environment. Ayla also conducts environmental education and awareness activities, and its corporate social responsibility strategy offers ample space for programs that protect natural resources from pollution.
Dudin concluded by stating, “Today, we utilize the capabilities and facilities of Ayla for this creative initiative that combines sports and environmental goals. It sheds light on the voluntary work carried out by Jordanian youth to protect beaches and the marine environment.”
Seif Al Madanat, the co-founder of the ProjectSea initiative, expressed appreciation for Ayla and the sponsoring institutions of the “Golf Day” competition. This campaign represents the largest support initiative for the ProjectSea initiative, with broad participation from the local community and Jordanian institutions in the private sector. It enables volunteers to continue playing a pioneering role in society.
Beisan Al Sharif, the co-founder of the ProjectSea initiative, stated, “We are pleased to collaborate with Ayla in this initiative, where our values and efforts align to support the local community and raise awareness about the challenges facing the marine environment. It emphasizes the need to unite efforts in mitigating these challenges.”
The ProjectSea initiative aims to implement activities that uplift the local community and integrate volunteers within it. The initiative seeks to highlight the potential of volunteers and provide them with leadership roles in improving the community environment through voluntary work.
Since its inception, the ProjectSea initiative has organized monthly sea cleaning campaigns, successfully completing 22 campaigns. With the efforts of 400 volunteers from 38 countries, they have collected over 100,000 pieces of various harmful waste, weighing more than 7.5 tons.
