The Social Development Ministry has closed the nomination period for both the 17th local edition and eighth Arab edition of the prestigious "Her Royal Highness Princess Sabeeka bint Ibrahim Al Khalifa Award for Productive Families."

A total of 89 projects are set to compete across three categories, with winners to be honored at a ceremony under the patronage of Her Royal Highness Princess Sabeeka bint Ibrahim Al Khalifa, President of the Supreme Council for Women (SCW), later this month at the Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Centre.

Enas Mohammed Al Majed, Assistant Undersecretary for Community Development at the Social Development Ministry, revealed that 60 local projects and 23 Arab projects are vying for the "Best Product" and "Best Productive Family" awards. Additionally, six nominated projects from Bahrain and other Arab countries will compete for the prestigious "Best Sponsor of Productive Families" award.
