Education Above All (EAA) Foundation’s programme, Reach Out To Asia (Rota), has concluded its four-day Rota Youth Challenge training at Hamad Bin Khalifa University.
The Rota Youth Challenge aims to enhance the capabilities and potential of the youth, thus creating an enabling environment for effective citizenship and leadership to contribute towards the progress and prosperity of their nation and the world.
More than 45 male and female students in universities and high schools between the age of 16 and 26 years attended the Youth Challenge training. The 42 chosen participants went through a learning journey that enabled them to discover their voice and build their knowledge, skills, and experiences, towards creating a positive change for themselves and their communities, as well as ultimately become active leaders in their societies.
The training will be followed by a project from October 2018 until March 2019, where the participants will furthermore master the skills they learnt during the training period, until the inauguration of Empower 2019.
Mohamed A Saleh, national programmes director of Rota, said: “The youth are the backbone of every society and determine its future. Nowadays, they have great responsibilities towards their community and must aim to create positive and impactful change. Therefore, our youth were invited to invest and harness more of their time, energy and efforts to make the most out of this unique and empowering event that has enabled them to become capable and productive citizens to tackle the challenges faced in their communities”.
The Rota Youth Programme supports EAA’s mandate of Quality Education through creating the suitable environment and platform for young people in Qatar to experience an interactive and participatory educational experience to learn about sustainable development and global citizenship. The programme empowers young people as learners, contributors, decision makers, and citizens, by giving them special attention; and forges future leaders who take on active leadership roles through innovative projects and ideas.
