As part of its continued efforts to support Bahrainis throughout their developmental stages, Tamkeen participated in several career fairs at various universities including the University of Bahrain, Gulf University and the Royal University for Women. Tamkeen’s participation in the career fairs comes in support of youth empowerment through vocational training and skills development.
During the fairs, Tamkeen highlighted to participating students and attendees Tamkeen’s various programmes and how they can utilise them to enhance their future careers and businesses.
Tamkeen is a semi-government organisation in Bahrain established in 2006 under Law Number (57) as part of the country’s national reform initiatives, with the task of making the private sector as the key driver of sustainable economic development.
