“Social Development” enhances the values of social solidarity through “Giving Challenge” initiative

The Ministry of Social Development and Family, represented by the Family Empowerment Department, in cooperation with Qatar Charity and Ajyal Educational Center, continues the activities of the “Giving Challenge” initiative, which will continue throughout the holy month of Ramadan.

This initiative comes in cooperation with Qatar Charity, as it is the social partner of the Ministry in implementing several distinguished future projects, programs and initiatives that support Qatar National Vision 2030 and preserve Islamic values and good morals, in addition to activating the role of social care.

The Home-Grown project comes as the first of future projects in cooperation with Qatar Charity. It is a national social project through which the Ministry of Social Development and Family seeks to provide daily iftar meals for fasting people, created and produced by owners of productive projects during the holy month of Ramadan.

This initiative aims to open the doors wide for owners of national production projects (Home-Grown) to engage in the experience of supplying large quantities to the public with the aim of empowering them economically. It also educates children about the importance of breaking the fast for those who are fasting, and about the importance of volunteering in charitable social work that benefits them, to produce a generous, proactive generation that has social responsibility and will lead society in the future.

The Giving Challenge intiative included the distribution of approximately (90) daily iftar meals to those who were fasting through the Home Grown’s project, which are integrated meals distributed to needy families affiliated with the Qatar Charity Society.

In addition, the Ministry of Social Development and Family, in cooperation with the Ajyal Educational Center, distributed (50) breakfast meals prepared by one of the distinguished production projects daily in the public gathering square in the Cultural District in Katara, in addition to the Iftar Cannon event.

Young volunteers from the Ajyal Educational Center distributed distinctive, breakfast meals, including some traditional Qatari foods: Harees, Madrooba, Luqaimat, and others, to the public.            

Mrs. Fatima Mohammed Al Nuaimi, Director of the Family Empowerment Department at the Ministry, stated, “The Giving Challenge initiative includes an electronic media campaign on the Ministry’s social media platforms, and it is a campaign that accompanies these events, as it aims to instill the values of giving and social solidarity in the hearts of children.”

For his part, Dr. Abu Bakr Musa Abdullah, Director and Founder of the Ajyal Educational Center, said: “We are pleased to participate in the initiative of the Ministry of Social Development and Family “Giving Challenge,” by involving the center’s children in distributing breakfast meals. This participation comes in line with the Ministry’s goal of instilling values and promoting the virtue of morals and charity during the holy month of Ramadan.”

Dr. Abu Bakr Musa added, “We at the Ajyal Educational Center appreciate the efforts of the Ministry of Social Development and Family in implementing such initiatives that enhance brotherhood and giving in society and enhance the importance of volunteer work. This participation also highlights the close and fruitful cooperation between the Ministry of Social Development and the Ajyal Educational Center, which is embodied in a group of programs and initiatives aimed at investing in and developing children’s capabilities, so that they can be leaders in the nation’s development.”

Student Hamad Al-Salah, a member of the Ajyal Educational Center and participant in the initiative, explained, “I participated with pride and honor in the “Giving Challenge” initiative, where I, in cooperation with my colleagues, distributed breakfast meals to fasting workers, passers-by, and visitors. This experience was inspiring and fruitful for me, as I felt joy and inner satisfaction with my contribution to bringing joy and happiness to the hearts of others in the blessed month of Ramadan. Thanks, from the bottom of my heart, to the Ministry and to the Ajyal Center for this opportunity.” 

Student Maryam Al-Qahtani, a member of the Ajyal Educational Center and participant in the “Giving Challenge” initiative, said while highlighting his experience, “it was a moment full of joy and satisfaction. This initiative reinforced in me the value of cooperation and social solidarity and left me with a feeling of happiness and satisfaction in contributing to providing support and assistance to others in this blessed month. I cannot fail to thank all the organizers and those responsible for this initiative.”
