The Society develops and creates sustainable development programs that contribute toward responding to the needs of the Saudi society by offering rehabilitation and training for individuals (who are financially disadvantaged) based on their personalities and qualifications. In addition, the Society endeavors to find work opportunities for trained individuals, while continuing to support them financially and professionally. In designing these programs, the Society responds to residents’ needs then invites them to participate in decision-making processes. It also exposes them to similar local and regional experiences and proposes ways and means to derive value from such expertise, and forms strategic alliances to enrich the implementation of its current and future programs.
“To pioneer the building of a system of sustainable development, through exchange of expertise and implementation of mechanisms that empower individuals in their societies in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.”
