Generation Amazing teams up with Qatar Foundation to deliver summer camps

The Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) is working with Qatar Foundation to sponsor its first Pre-University Education team's summer camp, and as part of the collaboration is delivering bespoke Generation Amazing sessions for attendees. 

The camp, which is running from 2–27 July in the state-of-the-art Awsaj Academy in Education City, is open to boys and girls aged 6-17.

Mead Al Emadi, the SC's Corporate Social Responsibility Local & Regional Manager, said: "We are delivering the Inclusive Generation module of our Generation Amazing programme to 120 children. 

"With these sessions we will reinforce communication, teamwork and leadership skills with two different sets of students."

Schoolchildren from across the country, including from nine Qatar Foundation schools under the Pre-University Education team's banner, have been invited to attend.

Since it was founded in 2010, the Generation Amazing programme has provided workers, schoolchildren and vulnerable people the skills and means to help effect social change in their communities. 

The programme has been driven by the belief that change works best when people lead it themselves. It empowers people to create united, healthy and sustainable societies through its three primary initiatives: Inclusive GenerationHealthy Generation and Green Generation.

Participants at the events spoke positively of their Generation Amazing experiences so far.

"I love that girls are able to play football," said Maha Al Salem, 10. "This game is not just for boys. It's so fun to take part; it doesn't matter who wins or loses."

Mohammed Shaqfeh, nine, explained that he wasn't really a fan of sport before he started the camp.

"Since I've become a part of Generation Amazing, I've started to love playing football. I've learned that you can only succeed if you work together as a team and through this I've made many friends here."

Meanwhile, Hissa Al Kubaisi, QF's Head of Curriculum, added: "The SC's participation, represented through the Generation Amazing programme, has immensely contributed in reinforcing team building skills, integrity, and honest competitive spirit among participants."
