The UAE’s commitment to improving the quality of life for people of determination continues through a number of new community initiatives.
The Qelada project, an initiative rolled out by the Ministry of Community Development, aims to rehabilitate and empower boys and girls of determination through skill-building and participation in large-scale events.
Through the project, 25 girls will showcase their creativity in gemstone making across the UAE.
The Qelada project saw significant success at the Jewellery Exhibition, which took place last year in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Sharjah as well as the Dubai Bride Show 2019.
The girls of determination have participated in 13 exhibitions across the UAE.
They will be showcasing a new collection of brooches and pins in collaboration with Emirati designer, Maryam Hosni, and Saudi designer, Khulood Arab at the Watch & Jewellery Middle East in Sharjah on 1st to 5th October.
The Qelada project aims to empower girls of determination by showcasing their talent to the community, enhancing their self-reliance, employing their promising creative abilities in designing unique bracelets, necklaces, brooches and cufflinks.
The project is part of the initiatives of the national policy for empowering the people of determination and one of the new milestones of their ongoing training and empowerment.
