Social and Economic Development
We believe that you don’t build capacity as a means to achieving development. Increased capacity is what development is. It is the end itself.
Better health and education help achieve empowerment. An empowered person or community is better prepared to respond to opportunities or challenges that come along.
Development is a process, not a result; it is the transformation of institutional and individual capacities that can lead to sustained change.
Achieving Sustainable Development Goals
Transforming lives through
Learning & technology
By applying our learning approach of mentoring and project-based activities, we provide communities with technical know-how, entrepreneurship skills, soft skills, and mindsets to realize their aspirations
By strengthening the soft skills that are critical for creating sustainable social change in a community, Smart Learning Arabia can improve the effectiveness and sustainability of programs such as youth mentorship, microcredit, community development, workforce development and entrepreneurship programs.
Our systems are designed to strengthen local leadership, governance capacity, and institutional bodies so communities can lead and manage the execution of their plan with minimal external support. Our process also provides mentors and program staff the tools to evaluate how behavior associated with the soft skill has changed
We help participants build practical skills, reinforce their ability and desire to learn, and develop the associated behaviors that are necessary for becoming self-reliant citizens and entrepreneurs.
