Silatech, an international, social development organisation, established by Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, participated at the side events of the 140th Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) which concluded on Wednesday.

Silatech's participation aimed at demonstrating its role and mission to socially and economically empower youth, as the driving force for community development, thus achieving stability and transforming these communities and societies, according to a statement.

Silatech’s CEO Sabah al-Haidoos stated that “the IPU assembly in Doha, with the participation of politicians from all over the world was a valuable opportunity to demonstrate Silatech’s mission and its role in achieving development in volatile communities and those in conflict through the provision of job opportunities. This message aligns with the IPU agenda in tackling issues of security, peace, fighting hunger, poverty, and achieving welfare and UN SDGs”.

“The call of Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser at Silatech high-level event in Geneva last month was clear. She called upon the leaders, politicians, governments, businessmen and NGOs to co-operate and join forces for the interest of youth and incorporate them to drive the development of their societies”, added al-Haidoos.

Participants at the IPU meetings visited Silatech's booth to learn about its pioneering experience in providing jobs to youth in 17 countries in Africa and the Middle East and its success in providing more than 1,000,000 jobs since its inception in 2008.

Participants also learned about the future programmes that Silatech intends to implement to reach the goal announced by Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, founder and chairman of the Board of Trustees of Silatech, to provide 5,000,000 jobs for youth by 2022, as well as inviting leaders and politicians in the world to join efforts towards this goal, which is considered as a global challenge.

Silatech is seeking more partnerships to join a network of more than 300 local, regional and international partners with the objective of expanding its operational outreach in new regions.

Silatech also provided an overview on its programmes that align with a number of UN SDGs and UN Youth strategy 2030.

Silatech aims to combat unemployment, extremism and the marginalisation of youth and women and youth through employment and economic empowerment initiatives. It works to empower to become agents of change, capable of transforming their lives and societies for the better.
