Al Faisal Without Borders Foundation (ALF) and Qatar Voluntary Centre (QVC) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to share skills and knowledge in training.
QVC will also provide ALF with volunteers and ALF will conduct training for volunteers and provide them with details about events they are participating in before deploying them.
“ALF is steadfast in pursuing and achieving our aspiration of being a leading global humanitarian organisation,” said Abdullatif Al Yafei, General Manager of the foundation.
“Together with Qatar’s goal of realising sustainable economic growth and prosperity for citizens and residents as contained in Qatar National Vision 2030, we aim to contribute to the attainment of the objectives by developing, employing and managing quality projects that enhance education, healthcare, youth empowerment, entrepreneurship, charity and corporate social responsibility.
“In doing so, we believe in collaborating with entities such as QVC to collectively strengthen our capacities and realise common objectives.”
The MoU marks the first time that both organisations involved in humanitarian and volunteer work have teamed up in pursuit of noble causes.
Aisha Jassim Al Kuwari, Chairperson, QVC, said: “It is our pleasure to be working with ALF because it contributes to the achievement of the aspirations contained in Qatar National Vision 2030 and enables volunteers to participate in the initiatives it adopts.
“QVC aims, through its vision, to make volunteering a lifestyle, serve the community, foster volunteer work and raise awareness about volunteering. It also works on programmes and activities for Qatari and expatriate youth about its benefits to them and the community. QVC is also keen to spread Islamic and moral values among youth,” she added.
“ALF and QVC have a shared vision of providing innovative developmental opportunities for individuals and communities, including in the field of volunteer work,” said Ali Talal Mar’e, Executive Director, ALF Foundation.
“With the scope of work we are involved in and the energy and enthusiasm towards volunteerism of the people from QVC, I am confident that the synergies of our respective expertise will serve to further facilitate the achievement of our goals.
