 Her Excellency Sheikha Hind bint Hamad Al Thani, Vice Chairperson and CEO of Qatar Foundation (QF), has met with members of QatarDebate’s Elite Academy.
The gathering was also attended by Machaille Al-Naimi, President of Community Development, Qatar Foundation, and took place at QF Headquarters ahead of the 4th International Universities Arabic Debating Championship (IUADC), which will be held in Doha, Qatar, from April 8 – 12.

The Elite Academy is a unique initiative of QatarDebate, a member of QF, which aims to train and mentor young men and women from around the region through specialized learning opportunities.

The program is designed to help create a generation of skilled debaters, encouraging two-way communication and enabling its members to meaningfully serve the communities they represent.

During the informal gathering, H.E. Sheikha Hind spoke with the young men and women, some of whom will be participating in the IUADC as judges, about how they have helped promote a culture of debate in their own countries.
