MyMaximus is the first-of-its-kind vocational and job placement centre built in a concept of a shopping mall with the theme of ’Learn and Earn’ for the adults of determination, the centre was born from the critical need for educational, vocational and job placement support to adults with mental disabilities in UAE after the school years.

Nahid Mudathir Hassan, Founder and Chief Executive Officer at MyMaximus, said: Creating productive society and sustainable living for people of determination is the dream of each parent who is blessed with a determined child. MyMaximus is designed with a vision to create and develop a comprehensive eco-system to support the employment of the mentally impaired. The determined through their training and early intervention have already gained and developed multiple skills, but due to the nature of their needs, they still face difficulties to cope with the real working environment when they start working. Bridging the gap of the knowledge and the readiness of the working environment is what we are aiming to achieve through this initiative.

Nahid added we are not here to reinvent the wheel but to identify a skill that a determined person has developed through his/her training life. We build on it and support the determined with employment. We believe that some modifications are required in the working environment today to support the employment of the intellectually determined. We are working closely with our partners on several fronts to close this gap.

She added “MyMaximus is designed in a shopping Mall concept to replicate a real working environment and provide the determined people with a seamless working environment”. The centre comes with commercial outlets opened to the public to include public evening training classes , gym facilities , retail shop, beauty salons and café to promote inclusion and empowerment.

Nahid concluded “we are also encouraging and promoting self-employment programs”. Some of our determined will not be able to work in the conventional working environment available today. Hence, we are in contact with local and international organization to support funding and supporting SME for people of determination.

“Empowering youth is a strategic priority for us that will help us prepare a generation capable of keeping pace with future changes. and in this light we would like to congratulate MyMaximus for its efforts towards launching such an inspiring centre” said Mohammed Saeed Al Raqbani, General Manager, Dubai Investments Industries and Head of Sustainability Committee, Dubai Investments.

He added these initiatives help create an inclusive and empowering community contributing continuously to the role of the People of Determination in our society. By enhancing educational infrastructure and boosting creative skills, we are happy to announce the opening of such a unique centre that will help facilitate the needs of the communities not only in and around DIP but also across the region”,
