Dr. Reem Al Kindi confirmed the Foundation’s interest in consolidating awareness among youth, adolescents and youth groups, based on its role in enhancing knowledge building for these groups, and hence the importance of the workshop, which is based on three interactive axes.
The workshop dealt with the importance of integrating roles between the family, school and social development institutions to improve the knowledge building of these groups, especially at an early age, so that the individual can identify the best applied practices that enable him to master these skills and present them well in his scientific and practical life.
