July 10, 2019 | By RetailME Bureau

Princess Lamia Bint Majid Al Saud, secretary general of Alwaleed Philanthropies, has been appointed as a champion of Generation Unlimited, the global partnership working to prepare young people to become productive and engaged citizens. And Alwaleed Philanthropies is a philanthropic foundation that supports initiatives across the world in women’s and youth empowerment, community development, cross-cultural understanding and crisis and disaster relief.

Launched in 2018, Generation Unlimited is a partnership hosted by UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Fund) to connect secondary-age education and training to employment and entrepreneurship, empowering young people to thrive in the world of work.

Princess Lamia joins champions including Nikolai Astrup, the Norwegian minister of digitalisation; Takehiko Nakao, president of the Asian Development Bank; and Vera Songwe, executive secretary, United Nations Economic Commission for Africa, among others.

“The rising generation of young men and women across the world are inspiring, with creative answers to the challenges that will define the future of our economy, environment and society. But they need our support to unleash their potential. I am honoured to join the effort to connect the private sector, foundations and governments through Generation Unlimited to support their ideas and solutions,” said Princess Lamia.

Using her leading role and widespread experience, Princess Lamia will focus on generating private sector support and advocating for programmes that empower young people and provide them with quality education and training opportunities.

“There are currently two billion young people around the world – millions of them do not know if the skills they are learning today will help them earn a living tomorrow,” observed UNICEF executive director, Henrietta Fore. “Generation Unlimited – a global partnership designed to harness young people’s potential – is delighted that HRH Princess Lamia Bint Majid al Saud of Alwaleed Philanthropies is lending it her support.”
