AlMabarrah AlKhalifia Foundation (MKF) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Royal University for Women (RUW), which aims to advance the role of both entities by achieving common goals related to the development of professional skills across various fields.

The signing ceremony witnessed the presence of MKF executive director Saba Seyadi and RUW president Professor Yusra Mouzughi, in addition to a number of employees from both entities.

The agreement included providing MKF beneficiaries with training opportunities at the RUW, and enabling the foundation to utilise the university’s facilities to host events, educational activities and organise workshops aimed at refining basic academic skills.

Ms Seyadi commented on the fruitful partnership between the university and the foundation, praising the university’s leading role in developing the future generation of female leaders in Bahrain and beyond.

Ms Mouzughi expressed her excitement at opening new horizons of co-operation in various fields that serves the goals of both entities. She also praised the effective role and efforts made by the foundation in empowering and preparing Bahraini youth for the labour market by providing them with a range of activities in accordance with their aspirations and interests.

The Rayaat Scholarship programme is one of the most prominent programmes of MKF, and was launched in 2011, in line with the foundation’s goal aimed at empowering youth and developing their academic and practical skills in various fields.

The programme seeks to provide academic scholarship, in addition to organising workshops and educational courses throughout the academic year and creating job opportunities in government and private sectors.

The programme also aims to enhance the concept of social responsibility towards the country and urge students to participate in volunteer work to serve the community.
