The Social Development Center (SDC) announced its participation through BADR WA INT GADR program in “Forsaty” exhibition for productive families. The exhibition is organized by the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs place from the 23rd to 26th of March, “Aljiwan Hall” of Al Dana Club.
The SDC’s hopes that by this participation it can invite Qatari’ families to explore the beneficial opportunities offered by SDC programs like BADR, to help improve their entrepreneurial projects.
On this occasion, Mr. Munther Al-Dawood, Director of Project Management and Investment in SDC said, “We would like to take this opportunity to attract more Qatari families and encourage them to use our services. We are also pleased to have the families, who participated with us before, showcase their products at the exhibition.” Al-Dawood also focused on the importance of entrepreneurship programs in diversifying the economy, which is in line with the Qatar National Vision 2030 adding, “The department of small enterprises and development is keen on organizing training courses that meet the productive families’ aspirations, as well as, entrepreneurship project owners in Qatar.”
The “Forsaty” exhibition highlights the Ministry of Social Affairs’ role of supporting local production, Qatari talents, and raising awareness for the importance of saving and refraining from overspending. The exhibition is considered to be a hub for productive Qatari families that produce handicrafts, perfume, food and clothing.
The program provides full support for entrepreneurial projects by individuals and families alike across Qatar, by assisting them to develop successful enterprises and offering a range of services that support productive families to ensure the continuity of their success. Some of these services include training, marketing, administrative support, motivation, encouragement and funding.
BADR program was initially launched in 2002 under the name (The Modern Family Program) and rebranded in 2012 to Badr wa int Gadr, meaning “take the initiative” and “you can” which are key messages to all the program members.
