Qader Award 2020

The Ability Friendly Program is an initiative that supports people of all abilities to engage in sporting and developmental activities, including those with autism, learning difficulties, hearing, visual, and physical impairments, among others.

The program offers specialized football and swimming classes and seasonal camps that are tailored to participants' individual needs. They are open to anyone ages four and above. The Qader Award was created to ensure this community-driven initiative is available for all families and individuals with specific needs living in Qatar. For the second year running, it will offer them the opportunity to participate in either the swimming or the football program at no cost for the full academic year 2020-2021.

The online application will be open from 5 April – 30 April 2020, and those selected to receive the award will be eligible to begin in September 2020. All submissions should include supporting documents, as any incomplete application will not be considered.
