It is also an effective tool in supporting the efforts of the Ministry of Education to implant noble values in students. Its goals, furthermore, are connected with the goals of the school curricula that aim to inculcate the intrinsic educational and academic concepts in students’ behavior, performance and future direction, in addition to implanting the values of responsibility, work, production and giving.

Fatima bint Mubarak Volunteering Programme

The initiative is the first of its kind and aims to establish the culture of voluntary work and humanitarian giving among women and children, both locally and internationally, by adopting initiatives to attract, train and build the capabilities of women and children, and enable them to participate in voluntary work.

The Fatima bint Mubarak Voluntary Programme focuses on the four pillars of thought, ability, empowerment and giving. It includes launching several initiatives that effectively contribute to developing the skills of women and children and enable them to take part in voluntary work through organizing summits, launching a program to enhance their abilities, and creating an award for women and children in the area of voluntary work.

The program will also launch an international campaign to invest in the efforts of women and children in the sectors of health, education, culture and the environment, as well as in other initiatives that will help to achieve a sustainable community and economic development.
