Economic Empowerment

The OECD defines inclusive growth as economic growth that is distributed fairly across society and creates opportunities for all.

Challenges

Unemployment and underemployment lies at the core of poverty and today, more than 736 million people live below the international poverty line.

Poverty manifestations include hunger and malnutrition, limited access to education and basic services, social discrimination and exclusion, as well as the lack of participation in decision-making and in the global economic processes.

The Covid-19 pandemic exacerbated what already was a catastrophic economic outlook for millions and affected 81% of employers pushing millions of workers into unemployment, underemployment and working poverty.

While vulnerable populations have long been passive recipients of aid, further exacerbating their economic uncertainty,Qatar Charity envisions empowered communities with a self-sustained productive capacity and a sustainable earning power.
