Princess Jawaher’s Mashael Al-Khair Center

Brief Description :

Women population constitutes half the Saudi community and their contribution to development and raising the standards of living of their own families and the community at large is of paramount and strategic importance. To play their role efficiently and effectively to women and young women in particular, need to be empowered. This empowerment may not be achieved in schools only. There is a lack of volunteer organizations that take empowerment of women as a main goal and establish projects for its realization. Therefore a large number of women are unable to achieve their ambitions because they lack the support and the skills required.

Goals:

  • The main objective of the funds of the Center is to contribute efficiently to reducing women’s unemployment and improving their living conditions. It also endeavors to promote entrepreneurship and the culture of self-reliance and assist female investors in starting feasible projects based on sound scientific foundations. The establishment of small industrial enterprises providing craftsmanship and services as a support for existing large-scale industries is encouraged.
    The Center implemented a large number of training courses to help young women acquire leadership skills, and a training program under the title “My Skills, My Future” for training young women on basic life skills. A number of young women were supported until their small business succeeded and produced products that were successfully promoted and marketed.

Targeting Group :

  • Women of the region generally and young women specifically.

Beneficiaries Number:

  • 583
