Reach Out to Asia (Rota) has completed the first phase of its Leadership Training Programme in cooperation with Msheireb Properties.
The programme, which ran from October 29 to November 1, has been created to develop and enhance youth leadership and communication skills. It provides know-how for youth to be able to participate in the development of their communities and engage in local and international humanitarian action,
according to a statement.
“The Leadership Training Programme is the first phase of Rota’s three-phase Youth Challenges project that will be rolled out over the next five months with an aim to develop leadership, communication and community service skills. We believe that youth empowerment, including building and investing in their capabilities, is a substantial contribution to developing communities,” said Abdulla Albakri, community
development manager at Rota.
Noora Ali al-Rumaihi, public relations and communications supervisor at Msheireb Properties, said: “We at Msheireb Properties, believe in our Qatari youth’s capabilities. We also believe in supporting and developing these capabilities to enable them to take the lead and contribute to the realisation of the national vision. We are proud to support their thoughts and visions and to be a contributor that empowers them to turn it into reality.”
Participating in the programme were 45 youths aged 18 to 26 years, of whom more than 30 were Qataris. They were divided into six groups and each group was responsible for the development of an idea for a community service project and its implementation once approved.
The youth showed creativity and knowledge of the Qatari community’s needs and challenges.
Maha Kahmis al-Sulaiti, one of the participants, said: “We want to give back to our local community and this leadership training is a great opportunity to do that. As the youth of Qatar, it is part of our responsibility to improve our communities positively by utilising the knowledge served to by institutions like Rota.”
Leadership Training is the first phase of the Rota Youth Challenges project. The second phase will continue from this month until March 2016 and involve the practical execution of the
approved projects.
The projects will culminate with Empower 2016, where participants will share their results.
