Social

Our workers have migrated to Qatar to deliver the FIFA World Cup 2022™ venues. Many have left families behind in their home countries and may feel isolated and homesick.

We give workers opportunities to socialise, enjoy their free time and play an active role in Qatar’s society through several outreach activities.

What are we doing and what have we achieved?

 

The Workers’ Cup was launched in 2013 by the Qatar Stars League and the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC). Many of the teams competing have players working on FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ projects. The tournament aims to widen access to football and inspire our workers to lead active and healthier lifestyles.

 

In March 2019, the SC arranged for 6,000 workers to attend a concert by Indian superstar A.R. Rahman at Khalifa International Stadium. Our workers were part of the 20,000 crowd wowed by the multi-Academy Award and Grammy winner.

 

Generation Amazing is the SC's flagship corporate social responsibility programme. It uses the opportunity created by Qatar's hosting of the FIFA World Cup 2022™ to empower and educate people across Qatar, the region and the globe.

In 2016, Generation Amazing delivered a 10-week pilot project to SC workers on behalf of the Workers' Welfare team. This involved weekly training sessions based on various football for development educational modules. These modules use football drills to teach social skills and induce behavioural change.

Over 2,000 of our workers were invited to the semi-finals of the FIFA Club World Cup 2019™ tournament. Seeing some of the world’s best footballers in thrilling contests was an unforgettable experience for our workers.
