NAMA Center recently had a remarkable participation in the activities of the Qatari Youth Forum in its second edition, where it organised several activities that followed three main orientations.
At the NAMA Pavilion, the services provided to youth were presented, along with the outcome of the social entrepreneurs’ development project.
The outputs of the project were developed by the social entrepreneurs. In parallel, the Center’s team, in cooperation with Qatar University’s Center for Humanities and Social Sciences (CHSS), supervised the management of several workshops.
Through the forum, NAMA Center also sought engagement with youth, as it considers engaging with them and reaching out to them is one of the most important mechanisms to achieve the Center’s strategic directions for 2017-2020.
The Center has set up its pavilion to be an interactive platform managed by ‘Sama Nama’ youth themselves, in order to motivate young people to participate in community service, discuss the various participations of Sama Nama’s youth, present their community projects and encourage them through dialogue to engage in capacity building projects at the Center.
The Entrepreneurship Department participated in the various events of the Qatari Youth Forum with a number of projects incubated by NAMA Center. Participants in the “influencers” segment included Al Jazi Al Manaa, Latifa Al Bouainin, Roqaya Issa Al Sada and Fatima Ibrahim Al Ansari. Meanwhile, Salem Khamis Saif Al Alawi, Hind Abdulmalik and Ghanem Al Kuwari participated in the “Wings” segment.
As for the “Restaurant” activity, the participants were Mubarak Mohammed Al Khulaifi, Khuloud Rashid Jassem Rashid Al Rumaihi and Aisha Mubarak Marzouq Al Abdullah.
“Our participation in the second edition of the Qatari Youth Forum is a reflection of our strategy to empower young people, build their capacities and invest in their potential through the development of initiatives and programs that contribute to activating their participation in community development and to contribute effectively and dynamically to the realization of the Qatar National Vision 2030,” said Maryam bint Abdullatif Al Mannai, Acting Executive Manager of NAMA Center.
“We spare no effort at NAMA Center to provide all that contributes to the development and capacity-building of youth to assume their leading role in shaping a bright future for themselves and their society. We continue to listen to them and nurture their creative ideas, while striving to find practical solutions to their problems.
“We are also working to open communication channels among youth themselves, to share ideas and experiences, and build on their successes and achievements, including helping them to continue their march towards supplying the nation and society with all that is useful and beneficial”.
