The face of the world has rapidly changed due to the shift in the structure of communities from local to global citizens. People are communicating from all over the world, regardless of time differences, to share knowledge, skills, and values. The disadvantaged communities of many countries can voice their needs instantly to the world for help. There are vast opportunities to engage with faraway peers to pursue great efforts towards the betterment of humanity. Thus, people need to be skilled in communicating with others from around the world. The ability to communicate and express themselves internationally has become imperative.
Professionals from non-anglophone countries often find difficulty in performing at an international level due to their lack of ability to express themselves in English.
Ida Rafiqah Services for Humanity and Development Global (IRSHAD Global), helps non-English-speaking professionals to embark into a global stage to overcome language barriers to improve their productivity, facilitate understanding in communication, and increase the confidence needed to bring one’s best to the world stage. IRSHAD Global arrives as an answer to an increasing demand of skills in communication using English as a global language. It challenges these professionals to identify aims, set directions, and specify steps towards the goal.
