Youth Centre planned in Southern Governorate
A youth centre could be established in the Southern Governorate after a plot of land was allotted for the project. The Southern Municipal Council has approved a proposal to establish a youth centre in the governorate. The proposal has been referred to the Ministry of Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning and the Ministry of Housing.
“There is a lack of facility for the youth to practise their hobbies, sports and other interests,” the proposal stated. Southern Municipal Council chairman Bader Al Tamimi stressed that youth are an important segment of the society and the council hopes to support them.
A prominent proposal put forward by the Southern Governorate recently came to fruition as a park in the southern region, which has been equipped with special facilities to cater to special needs population.
A number of council members expressed their delight for the success. Khalid Janahi, a municipal council member of the Southern Municipal Council said that the initiative is an amazing example of becoming an inclusive society. He praised the efforts of the municipality in taking such steps.
“The move comes with our belief that people with special needs are an important part of Bahraini society and the too have recreational needs that they want to experience,” the Municipal Council said in a statement.
