Youth Empowerment

Youth Empowerment

The youth is the pillar of society

We can call the Saudi society as the society of young people, as the young people under the age of 30 years constitutes the greatest portion of the Kingdom's population, which makes them an essential base for economic and societal transformation and in all areas. The young people's exceptional capacities and continuing aspiration to positive change form a great power for success of the Kingdom's Vision 2030. It is not surprising that the young people (of both genders) are the most optimistic about objectives of Vision 2030 and engaged in its programs. The belief in visions and mega strategic projects always requires a deep understanding of its components and building bridges of knowledge in their accurate details to enhance confidence in their objectives and in those in charge of such visions and projects.

In addition, MHRSD seeks to overcome all obstacles and utilize all capabilities to serve such important group of the society by creating a positive social perspective through vocational rehabilitation programs and various activities provided to them.
