In its most recent efforts to further support entrepreneurship and instill it in Bahraini youths, the Ministry of Youth and Sports Affairs (MYSA) announced the launch of its latest initiatives, called ‘Youth Market.’
The initiative offers an extraordinary opportunity for Bahraini youths who own a virtual business (Virtual CR) to experience owning a real-life store. Not only so, but the stores are also located in a highly distinguished area in Bahrain. Youth Market aims to support, promote and highlight unique and creative youth projects in the Kingdom.
Wondering what are the terms and conditions to participate? You’d be pleased to know that they’re quite reasonable:
- The owner of the project must be Bahraini.
- The age of the project owner should be within the age group of 18-35 years old.
- To have a valid Virtual Commercial Registration (Virtual CR).
- The project should not be related to the sale of home-cooked foods or live cooking.
Youth Activities Specialist at MYSA, Ahmed Alasad, has commented on the occasion: “We hope to empower young Bahrainis to unlock their entrepreneurial potentials, and encourage entrepreneurship as a path rather than solely relying on full-time jobs as an only source of income.
Ultimately, this supports the Bahrain 2030 Vision and His Highness Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Representative of HM the King for Charity Works and Youth Affairs, Chairman of the Supreme Council for Youth and Sports‘ vision to create a competitive, equal, and open environment through which youth are positioning Bahrain at the top of the countries in the field of youth empowerment.
Such an opportunity will strengthen creativity, innovation, and responsibility. It’ll also give youths a chance to get a more hands-on experience with operating an actual marketplace.”
