Youth Employment Initiative in Qatar, Al Amal Bil Amaal

Silatech launched the Youth Employment Initiative in Qatar, Al Amal Bil Amaal program to facilitate access to the job market for young men and women in Qatar. This initiative is based on tenets of the Qatar National Vision 2030, which aims to balance economic and social growth for all residents of Qatar by investing in them and ensuring the provision of care, attention, and justice for all residents. The initiative aims to develop skills and provide economic empowerment opportunities for residents of Qatar, mainly those suffering from unemployment due to COVID-19, and the lack of skills necessary to enter the Qatari job market.


Bedaya Center for Entrepreneurship and Career Development, a joint initiative between Silatech and Qatar Development Bank, provides youth with access to a wide range of services including career guidance, self-assessment, employability skills development in employability and entrepreneurship, mentoring opportunities, volunteering, practical training, networking activities, and lecturers programmes.

Silatech’s Employment and Enterprise Development programmes work closely with the Bedaya team to provide services to youth in Qatar through the Bedaya Center.
