AlMabarrah AlKhalifia Foundation signed an agreement with Tamkeen to support a number of programs designated for enhancing the skills of the Bahraini youth and preparing them to embark on their careers. The agreement is entered into by the two entities for the 3rd consecutive year, stressing the Foundation’s vital role in supporting its students through “Rayaat” Scholarships Program, as well as training youth within the “Ithra’a Youth Enrichment Program, which is being supported by Tamkeen for the first time.

‘AlMabarrah AlKhalifia Foundation has offered until now more than 270 scholarships for students, enrolling them in different programs, according to each individual’s natural orientations, capabilities and skills, while taking into consideration labor market needs and Economic Vision 2030. We look forward to further cooperation with Tamkeen in the future, aiming towards the creation of a generation of powerful, skillful and efficient youth to lead the development of the Kingdom of Bahrain.”, added HRH Sheikha Zain.

For his part, Dr Ebrahim Mohammed Janahi Chief Executive of Labour Fund Tamkeen stressed the importance of partnerships between different local parties to create more opportunities for Bahraini youth. “Our partnership with Al Mabarah Al Khalifa Foundation continues for the third year aiming at supporting Bahraini youth and developing their professional and leadership competencies alongside with their academic progression, to increase their ability to compete in the labour market whether they choose to become employees or to take the path of entrepreneurship. ”

Having a closer look at the programs, “Rayaat” program offers training sessions and workshops that aim to reinforce self-esteem, develop self-assertion, and enhance speaking, management and communication skills, with a focus on English fluency, giving students a good platform to engage in the market and fulfill their roles.

Other supported courses include time management and presentation skills offered by BIBF, and also advance First Aid course offered by the General Directorate of Civil Defense and Bahrain Red Crescent Society. Tamkeen’s support will include more courses on effective teambuilding, vocational protocol, and leading high performance teams, offered by Golden Trust Institute.
