Focus Areas

The focus areas prioritized aim at the local, integrated and sustainable development, focusing on the territorial development, seeking for proposals that maximize the synergies between the projects.

Through its social responsibility programmes, the Foundation renders support in four focus areas:

  • The Foundation focus on contributing to enabling an environment to the development of entrepreneurship, as job opportunities shall arise from the creation of new businesses and the improvement of the quality and productivity of existing producers and suppliers in the local economy. In order to support actions towards the improvement of income of small scale entrepreneurs the Foundation seeks to upgrade skills which promote the modernization of administrative practices, enhance the entrepreneurial spirit as well as the development of human resources in matters of research and technology.

    Therefore, the Foundation supports initiatives which:

    • encourage entrepreneurial activity, innovative applications and enhancement of Small & Medium Enterprises (SMEs);
    • promote the preparation and training of people for prospective employment in the industrial cluster, in small businesses and the creation of self-employment;
    • promote educational programmes which foster innovative entrepreneurial thinking and action.
  • Youth is one of the priorities for the Foundation. Investment in training and education for work shall increase the skills and capacities of the young people. It is about achieving proper levels of quality and productivity, particularly in the modern life, which requires a qualifying effort of manpower, and also of entrepreneurs and suppliers related to any field of work.

    Therefore, the Foundation supports initiatives which:

    • strengthen the education for work, increasing the skills and capacities of the young people for the labor market;
    • enhance the adaptability of young people to the rapid changes that characterize the labor market;
    • promote the insertion of the youth in the labor market.
  • Culture and sports are important tools to promote the development of communities. The focus area in culture and sport has the potential of enhancing sociability, collective entertainment and integration, thus leveraging the development of the other focus areas. Considering culture as a social aspect, development might not be truly achieved and sustainable, if it doesn´t consider the culture processes, if it ignores the lifestyles, values systems, the traditions, the beliefs and the knowledge of the community.

    In face of that, the Foundation supports initiatives which:

    • contribute to safeguard the intangible heritage of the Omani culture, enhancing the articulation between social and economic value of such heritage;
    • promote the sports development, creating qualification and professionalization opportunities, preferably revealing new talents in Sports;
    • promote sports activities, generating social integration.
  • The performance in the health domain aims at addressing key issues identified in the region: (a) the lack of health personnel in Al Batinah North Governorate, supporting the training of staff in the health area; and (b) the so-called epidemiological transition, by contributing to the reduction of the impacts of modernization, through the prevention and control of 'modern' diseases - such as obesity, hypertension, diabetes and others -, addictions, occupational accidents and traffic accidents.

    Therefore, the Foundation supports educational programs in:

    • training of health professionals;
    • education and prevention of traffic accidents;
    • health promotion and prevention of risk factors.

    In the Environmental domain, the Foundation supports initiatives which:

    • promotes awareness, attitudes and knowledge related to
      natural resources conservation, and environmental
      preservation;
    • environmental education programmes.
