Gulf Times - - FRONT PAGE -

Qatar Char­ity (QC) has launched ‘Tamken’, an in­te­grated train­ing pro­gramme of­fered re­motely via its so­cial me­dia ac­counts, to en­hance the eco­nomic, so­cial and psy­cho­log­i­cal skills of in­di­vid­u­als, un­der the aus­pices of Et­laqq Busi­ness Man­age­ment and Be­daya Cen­tre.

The pro­gramme targets male and fe­male in­di­vid­u­als with ideas and small projects, those in need of train­ing to enter the mar­ket, and per­sons with spe­cial needs, in ad­di­tion to those af­fected by the Covid-19 pan­demic and those will­ing to have a project that en­sures a steady source of in­come for a more sta­ble life, QC has said in a state­ment.

Jas­sim Mo­hamed al-Emadi, direc­tor of the Lo­cal De­vel­op­ment Depart­ment at Qatar Char­ity, said: “We, through the com­mu­nity pro­grammes, aim to hone the ca­pa­bil­i­ties and en­er­gies of peo­ple to make them self-re­liant in or­der to sup­port the achieve­ment of Qatar Na­tional Vi­sion 2030 and Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment Goals of the United Na­tions.”

He added that the ‘Tamken’ pro­gramme aims to en­able peo­ple to have op­por­tu­ni­ties that as­sure them of a sta­ble life at all lev­els, not­ing that it is a multi-dis­ci­plinary project aimed at hon­ing the nec­es­sary prac­ti­cal skills. He also in­di­cated that the pro­gramme will in­clude peo­ple with spe­cial needs in the next stage, in co-oper­a­tion with the au­thor­i­ties con­cerned and com­mu­nity part­ners.

He said Qatar Char­ity is keen to en­gage govern­ment and pri­vate sec­tors in eco­nomic em­pow­er­ment projects in sup­port of the com­mu­nity, as it aims to con­trib­ute to the achieve­ment of Qatar Na­tional Vi­sion 2030, es­pe­cially with re­gard to eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment.

On the side­lines of the press con­fer­ence, Dr Lat­ifa al-Dar­wish, CEO and co-founder of Et­laqq Busi­ness Man­age­ment, said: “The ‘Tamken’ pro­gramme is a se­ries of work­shops that will con­trib­ute to trans­form­ing ideas of in­di­vid­u­als into suc­cess­ful com­mer­cial projects that will add eco­nomic value to so­ci­ety.”

She also noted that the work­shops would cover the field of mar­ket­ing, vis­ual iden­tity and project man­age­ment, based on the model adopted in Qatar.

“We will work to help in­di­vid­u­als who have ideas to in­tro­duce their prod­ucts to the mar­ket and de­velop their projects,” said Ab­dul­lah al-Saeed, a mem­ber of the board of di­rec­tors and of­fi­cer-in-charge of Be­daya Cen­tre. “We are tar­get­ing nearly 30 peo­ple to par­tic­i­pate in the first phase of the pro­gramme.”

He also noted that in case of fur­ther de­mand for the pro­gramme, other work­shops would be or­gan­ised in co­op­er­a­tion with Qatar Char­ity in the fu­ture.
