Doha - MENA Herald: Nama Center, one of Qatar Foundation for Social Work’s affiliated centers, has organized a special ceremony to honor the teachers and students who participated in its ‘Sekik’ life skills development program, in the presence of the heads of departments and media representatives, at ‘Ain Khaled’ Hall, in the center’s headquarters. Awards were given to teachers for their excellent performance during the training.

Seven educational projects have been implemented as part of the ‘Sekik’ program, inspired by everyday life skills. Participating schools competed to offer their best through implementing the workshops and creatively presenting information. Hanan Amin Al-Tairi, from Amna Bint Wahab Preparatory School for Girls, won the first place, and Shrooq Al-Mohannadi, from the Qatar Independent School of Banking and Business Administration for Girls, came in the second place. The third place went to Huda Musawi Osman, from Amna Bint Wahab Independent Secondary School for Girls.

‘Sekik’ program aims at improving life styles and skills, the main engine for developing youth capacities to become effective and productive members in the community. Through its ‘Sekik’ project, NAMA seeks to build the capacities and minds of young people to enable them to think positively, perform better in life, and strengthen their identity. The project is divided into two programs. The first is the "Life Skills Training Program", which revolves around developing the training capacity of teachers so that they can properly deal with the students and train them to develop their basic cognitive and life skills.

The second program is the "Life Enhancement Training Program", which involves providing students with the personal and social skills necessary to take steps towards achieving their goals. It also aims at helping students better understand their personal behaviors and improve their self-esteem so as to shape a brighter future for themselves and their community. The teachers delivered 32 workshops in 10 different schools, with nearly 130 educational activities offered to students. These activities focused on enhancing personal and social skills.
On this occasion, Mrs. Maryam Bint Abdullatif Al-Mannai – Community Services Manager Acting Executive Manager of NAMA Center, said:

“This special event is a tribute to the participation of teachers and students in the project and to the recognition of their outstanding interest and interaction during ‘Sekik’ project’s training activities. We are truly pleased to realize this remarkable achievement, which is a great success for our approach that is based on investment in human capital and active participation in training, qualification and awareness-raising among members of the community, especially the youth, and preparing them to meet future challenges through the application of educational and training systems to produce concrete and sustainable results.

Youth are the heart of our vibrant society, and we have great expectations that they lead the coming phases of the prosperity and progress of Qatar, which comes in the context of our active contribution to the realization of Qatar National Vision 2030. I also extend my warm congratulations to the teachers who have won with us today for their excellence and creativity, and I would like to express my sincere thanks and appreciation to the heads of departments at NAMA Center and everyone who contributed to the success of this leading project.”
