Qatar partners with UNFPA for youth programmes

DOHA, October 21, 2017

Nama Centre, one of Qatar Foundation for Social Work’s affiliated Centres, said it has signed a co-operation agreement with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) to develop the youth programs provided by the Centre. 
UNFPA is one of the most supportive institutions of youth issues, including their right to quality education and health services of all kinds, in order to empower youngsters with the knowledge and skills to protect themselves and make appropriate decisions to realize their full potential, towards contributing to positive economic and social transformation in their communities. 
The Fund is also investing in youth as the vanguard of future leadership of their countries who are capable of achieving stability and prosperity.
"This UNFPA agreement comes in the context of the centre's continuous efforts to co-operate with international developmental institutions and organizations concerned with youth, with the aim of helping them refine their abilities and hone their personal and practical skills to qualify them to participate effectively in their own personal development and that of their community," remarked Maryam Bint Abdullatif Al Mannai, the acting executive manager at Nama Centre after signing the deal with UNFPA director for the Arab States Regional Office Dr Luay Shabaneh. 
"We are definitely looking forward to more cooperation with international bodies and organizations active in the fields of youth development, as a service to our future generations and developing our society," she stated.
According to her, Nama Centre offers many initiatives, programs and scientific and practical courses aimed at youth in various fields. 
The centre also strives to meet the requirements for social entrepreneurship, as well as support startup owners and provide them with all forms of moral, material, consultative and logistical support in order to help them achieve their aspirations, which serve the community, diversify the national economy and contribute to the achievement of the Qatar National Vision 2030, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
