Qatar Museums (QM) and the Protection and Social Rehabilitation Centre (Aman) signed a memorandum of co-operation to rehabilitate and reintegrate into society children who fall victim to violence and family disintegration.
The two institutions will combine their efforts and strengthen bilateral co-operation in pursuit of the shared objectives of supporting children and providing youth with the best appropriate care.
The three-year agreement was signed by QM CEO Ahmad Musa al-Namla and Aman executive director Mariam bint Ali bin Nasser al-Misnad.
In line with the agreement, QM will seek to offer suitable and professional training to empower the Centre’s beneficiaries to join the job market. QM will also support scholarship applications sponsored by the Ministry of Administrative Development, Labour and Social Affairs while endorsing artistic talents at Aman as well as any other activity that the two parties deem necessary to achieve their objectives.
“QM seeks to discover and attract local artistic and creative talents and works on supporting and developing these talents to broaden the creative horizons of community members who contribute to Qatar’s rich artistic scene,” al-Namla said.
“We are pleased to co-operate with Aman Centre to offer scholarship and job training to beneficiaries of the Centre’s services in a bid to guarantee youth a decent life and a bright professional future in line with our social responsibility principles,” he added.
For her part, al-Misnad said: “We at Aman Centre are keen to open horizons of co-operation with various sectors in the state whose paths and goals meet ours towards serving Aman’s target groups”.
She stressed the importance of promoting co-operation bonds between Aman Centre and QM, seeking to realise common goals of supporting children and providing suitable care in the best possible ways.
Al-Misnad added that the agreement will contribute in promoting social responsibility and increases horizons of creativity of all individuals in the society, sprung from its social responsibility mandate.
Furthermore, she noted that this agreement is expected to have a positive impact on community members, particularly in terms of creating a safety net for target groups who will gain access to job opportunities and professional training, while also supporting artistic talents.
Al-Misnad reaffirmed the keenness of civil society organisations to provide and develop the best services for the target groups, continuously.
