Qatar Foundation for Social Work’s NAMA Center recently participated in the Qatar Total Women’s Open  Tennis 2017 through an exhibition of four projects by young Qatari men and women, beneficiaries of NAMA’s incubation services with support of the Qatar Tennis Federation. The Federation presented a number of shops to host the projects at the village set up on the sidelines of the tournament for the sixth year in a row.

Products on display include traditional clothing, perfumes and incense, Arabic hospitality tools, natural honey products, traditional Qatari cuisine, gifts and accessories, pottery, paintings, spices, promotional materials, printing on clothing, herbs and natural flowers, and many others.

Mariam bint Abdullatif Al Mannai – Director of the Community Services Department and Director in charge of running NAMA’s affairs said:

I was pleased to participate in this special event and introduce to the public and the Qatari society our efforts in the field of sustainable social development. We provide all forms of support for small and medium projects, paving the way for innovative entrepreneurs to launch their businesses towards success. The event is also the perfect occasion to give these entrepreneurs a glimpse of the projects’ inner workings and get the public a preview of their products in real life, encouraging community members and institutions to participate, so that we all become shareholders in achieving the Qatar National Vision 2030. Participation in such a major event is considered the perfect way to enhance the level of awareness of entrepreneurship in Qatari society, which in turn is one of the key channels towards achieving human capital development, leading to the development, prosperity and sustainability of the Qatari economy.

It is worth mentioning that NAMA Center has also participated in the 2017 Qatar ExxonMobil Open for men’s tennis, which took place in Doha from the 2–7  January, in order to shed more light on the status of entrepreneurial projects in Qatar as well as introduce the largest possible number of community members to NAMA’s outstanding services to the owners and pioneers of Small and Medium Enterprises incubated by the Center, in addition to promoting those projects and their products.
