Qatar Charity supports winning projects in ‘Tamken’ program

Qatar Charity (QC), in cooperation with Etlaqq Business Management and Bedaya Center for Entrepreneurship and Career Development, continues to support the excellent projects under the ‘Tamken’ program, which is concerned with developing capabilities in the areas of economic empowerment and contributing to the field of entrepreneurship in Qatar, by launching a promotional campaign for these projects.

The marketing campaign aims to acquaint the people with projects, and support youth to launch their projects and encourage them to put forth their ideas. Among these projects is ‘Afaq’, which is an electronic platform and mobile application project for art lovers and organizations, in addition to the ‘Cakeaty’ project, which offers cakes, with a taste that recalls the memories of childhood.

The Director of Programs and Community Development, Mr. Jassim Muhammad Al-Emadi, said that Qatar Charity and its partners continue to support these projects. He indicated that Qatar Charity extends supports through a promotional campaign aimed at acquainting the people with the winning projects and encouraging young people to launch similar projects in the field of entrepreneurship, while the partners continue to provide support for the rest of the projects that require formal procedures and the necessary licenses.

Dr Latifa al-Darwish, CEO of the Etlaqq Business Management, affirmed that the provided workshops yielded significant results as the participants benefited from them. She said they are following up on the winning projects and their work procedures. She also thanked Qatar Charity and Bedaya Center for this fruitful cooperation, indicating that the participation of Etlaqq in the program aims to help entrepreneurs, especially in light of the continued coronavirus.

The owners of the winning projects expressed their happiness with the continued support for them. Sarah Al-Baqer, the owner of the ‘Cakeaty’ project thanked Qatar Charity for extending its continuous support to the project, noting that the promotional campaign by Qatar Charity for it received a good response from the Qatari community. 

Mona Al-Badr, the owner of the "Afaq" project, thanked Qatar Charity and the partners for providing unlimited support, constructive initiatives like Tamken, workshops, and consultations to increase the project owner's awareness of the Qatari market.

It is worth mentioning that the "Tamken" program was launched in late 2020. It is an integrated training program provided remotely through Qatar Charity’s social media accounts.

The program targets persons with ideas and small projects, those in need of training to enter the market, and people with special needs, in addition to those affected by the Covid-19 pandemic to enable them to enter the market and market their projects properly.
