New Tamkeen drive to help businesses
Manama, September 4, 2013
Tamkeen, Bahrain’s labour fund, has launched a scheme where community leaders chosen as official representatives of the fund will be stationed across the kingdom’s five governorates to promote entrepreneurship within their societies.
The Community Engagement Initiative seeks to enhance the organisation's reach within communities across Bahrain, said a report in the Gulf Daily News, our sister publication.
Fifteen representatives from leading youth, social and charitable organisations have been already selected and trained to engage with people in their respective areas to promote Tamkeen's programmes.
The number of representatives is expected to increase to 35 as more people are being trained.
The scheme was launched at the Gulf Hotel by Tamkeen chairman Shaikh Mohammed bin Essa Al Khalifa in the presence of senior officials, stakeholder representatives, as well as community representatives.
"This level of engagement enables us to reach more people and enterprises and stay in tune with market requirements," said Shaikh Mohammed.
"We hope the new initiative will entrench these relations in communities in the kingdom's five governorates." – TradeArabia News Service
