Message of the Chairman of the Board
Stemming from the interest of the State of Qatar in being an active participant in the international community and under the wise leadership of His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, Amir of the State of Qatar, Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD) has been able to contribute to and facilitate a large number of sustainable and comprehensive development projects in many countries around the globe.
Stability, security, peace and justice for the peoples of the region and the world cannot be realized without the achievement of sustainable comprehensive development. We at QFFD work with our friends and partners around the world to provide the tools and strategies that help realize this development.
QFFD has contributed to relieving human suffering and investing in education, health and economic empowerment. We believe that these are critical strategies to combat terrorism and violent extremism. Such contributions help to provide hope instead of despair and help make the pen an alternative to weapons, especially among social sectors such as children and youth.
H.E. Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani
Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs
