In the framework of the joint cooperation between the Qatar Foundation for Social Work (QFSW), IHSAN Center, one of the QFSW Centers, has organized two arts and handicrafts workshops for IHSAN members over the period of four days, in collaboration with NAMA Social Development Center.

The workshops’ activities revolved around crochet handicrafts, with the aim of empowering mothers and providing them with new productive skills that help boost their income and self-reliance, as well as to strengthen their hand muscles, and integrate them with fellow affiliates, which helps break their daily routine and enhances their self-esteem.

It is worth mentioning that IHSAN Social Club is currently witnessing significant development through the creation of new services, programs and activities, so as to cover all aspects of life, from sports activities and handicraft skills to cultural and recreational seminars and lectures in a variety of fields. This is in addition to the Club’s elderly patrons and frequenters during daytime with supervision and health care services. The Social Club seeks to attract the elderly and create social interaction among them, where they can exchange experiences among themselves in various disciplines, as well as to empower them and strive to leverage those experiences for the benefit of the community.

IHSAN Center also focuses on the provision of initiatives and programs that seek to empower the elderly and promote solidarity between generations, as well as the promotion of opportunities for interaction between them. The first arts and handicrafts workshops kicked off on March 5, 2017 and continued for two days, while the second took place from March 12 to March 14, at the headquarters of IHSAN Center. Through those workshops, NAMA Center aims to achieve optimal investment in human capital, through the social engagement of youth and facilitating communication between them and the elderly, as well as the exchange of experiences, and endeavoring to utilize such experiences to serve society.
