KSA wants more discipline from Hafiz beneficiaries

March 3, 2014 2:14 am

Saudi Arabia’s Human Resource Development Fund (Hadaf) has warned beneficiaries of the Hafiz programme, which aims to support unemployed Saudis, that they would face a 10% deduction from the aid received in the event of absence from the training workshops to be held by the fund, or for failing to update their data on a weekly basis, Arab News has reported. Hafiz will embark on a programme to ensure the seriousness of beneficiaries through obliging them to join on-the-job-trainings. It will deduct 10% from the aid given to beneficiaries, which is SR150 out of SR1,500, if beneficiaries fail to show up for electronic training or fail to update their information each week.
