The Salem Bin Mahfouz National Foundation had completed its second annual operational plan by supporting dozens of development projects in the fields of education and empowerment of individuals and civil institutions in the three areas of its work, Makkah Al-Mukarramah, Madinah and Jizan.
Based on its vision of “leadership in developmental grants,” the Foundation participated with the community to confront the effects of the pandemic that the world witnessed this year, as it contributed to supporting national efforts to combat Corona by providing food baskets and promoting health and awareness aspects about the crisis, exceeding 12 million riyals.
The Foundation provided its support for initiatives to prepare second-grade leaders in the departments of education in Makkah and Jeddah, and for the second year in a row, in partnership with education departments.
It continued to establish the Smou program for the professional and educational qualification of primary school teachers, and the Essham program to prepare a generation of high school students who mastered the skills of the 21st century. In addition the foundation provided scholarships for students with the aim of obtaining higher academic degrees.
In empowering the non-profit sector, the Foundation made a contribution by supporting projects for the year 2020 in the Binaa and Badir programs.
Binaa is based on the idea of incubating 20 non-profit organizations and strengthening their institutional capabilities and financial sustainability.
Badir works to increase community participation through volunteering and social entrepreneurship through the rehabilitation and involvement of 30,000 volunteers, and the establishment and operation of five social entrepreneurship institutions.
The Foundation continued to support the establishment and operation of five entities specialized in serving the non-profit sector, and it also sponsored a range of initiatives and social, advocacy and scientific events.
