Mohammed Abu Jbara, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Manager at Qatar Shell, delivered a keynote speech at the opening ceremony saying, “Qatar Shell is very proud to have supported this outstanding program for 12 years since it first started as the Qatar MUN Programme then became The Hague International Model United Nations Programme five years ago. THIMUN touches both the human and social pillars of the Qatar National Vision 2030 which we strongly support, through its focus on education, teamwork, and leadership.
“The key objectives of the THIMUN programme are well-aligned with Qatar Shell’s CSR strategy, as we are committed to supporting and delivering sustainable contributions that positively impact Qatar’s society. A vital part of our CSR strategy includes collaboration with key local partners, which help to reinforce Qatari talent and capabilities,” he added.
Qatar Shell’s CSR programs support the development of the State of Qatar, in line with the Qatar National Vision 2030. In addition to the development and training of around 300 Qatari staff, Qatar Shell also contributes to national talent development in society more broadly. Examples of this include: The Enterprise Challenge Qatar, TAFAWOQ the Project Management Centre of Excellence and KOORA TIME, a five-year sustainable initiative designed in partnership with the Qatar Football Association to improve the health and well being of Qatar’s youth through football.
