The men’s branch of Qatar Charity (QC) Centre for Community Development in Al Khor has held a number of educational, cultural and family activities and competitions for non-Arabic-speaking communities living in Al Khor.

The activities were conducted in co-operation with the Friends Cultural Centre of QC as part of the continuation of the charity’s Tawasul programme, which has witnessed the active participation of both male and female participants.

More than 150 women and children have taken part in its different activities, which are expected to continue next year. New activities will also be added to the programme’s list, QC has said in a statement.

The programme includes several activities, the most important of which is Thamheedul Mar’a, an educational activity for women initiated by the centre in October, which will continue until the same month next year.

Some 15 female participants regularly attend this educational activity to learn the Holy Qur’an, Hadith and Islamic jurisprudence (Fiqh) and know about the history of the Righteous Caliphs. The centre also intends to launch another activity for men in order to benefit everyone.

The centre has also organised cultural competitions for children over the past two months, in which about 80 boys and girls have participated. Other competitions are expected to take place in the coming months.

Further, the centre considers holding other activities during the holy month of Ramadan, as well as during Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha.

The centre has also held a counselling session as part of the Tawasul programme, which was delivered by Nasiruddin, a family counselling expert, and attended by 60 women. Also, Dr Jaseera, a senior physician in Doha, spoke about psycho-physical issues of children during the session.

Sajidurrahman, an Indian community activity organiser, said QC’s Tawasul programme is a “very useful initiative” for the non-Arabic-speaking communities, especially for those living in Al Khor, where no such activities were earlier available for their children, families and women. The participants enjoy the activities of the programme, he added.

Qatar Charity, through this programme, aims to provide cultural, social, family and educational services to the non-Arabic-speaking communities in Al Khor and Al Thakira, and enhance communication among them, the statement adds.
