How KSA’s Community Jameel is promoting inclusivity

Hemam Jameel, a Community Jameel Saudi’s Programme that is dedicated towards the empowerment and inclusion of people with special needs, has signed an agreement with Ebsar Foundation to launch the Capable Initiative – a training initiative to cultivate and nurture an entrepreneurial culture among visually impaired individuals.

For perspective, the family behind Saudi Arabia based diversified business Abdul Latif Jameel started Community Jameel Saudi Arabia as a separately funded and managed entity to support community centric initiatives and variou social initiatives aligned with the Kingdom’s efforts to achieve the Saudi Vision 2030 agenda.

The Capable Initiative project will focus on developing entrepreneurial skills of visually impaired individuals, exploring available opportunities and equipping them with the necessary tools to launch projects, fostering financial independence and facilitating the transition from dependence to personal growth and development.

Held in cooperation with Nafisa Shams Academy, the Capable Initiative starts in July and will run for four months. The initiative is expected to attract up to 200 beneficiaries of training sessions and 1,000 beneficiaries of enrichment activities, in addition to supporting 20 people with visual impairments to establish their e-commerce startups.

“The partnership between Hemam Jameel and Ebsar Foundation is a testament to our shared vision of promoting inclusivity and creating a supportive environment for people with visual disabilities. By empowering individuals and fostering self-reliance, Hemam Jameel, under the Community Jameel Saudi umbrella, is positively impacting the lives of those who face unique challenges. The Capable Initiative enables individuals to develop and launch successful business ventures giving them equal opportunities to achieve financial independence. Ultimately, Hemam Jameel is raising the success rates of individuals who may have otherwise struggled to find their place in the professional world,” said Abdalla Taleb, Manager for Social Initiatives at Community Jameel Saudi.

The Capable Initiative project is aligned with the objectives of integrating people with disabilities into the labour market as stipulated in the National Transformation Programme, one of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 Realisation Programmes.
