The KEYSS Project is a mission driven organization that aims to bridge the gap between challenges of our youth and the need for advancement of our communities. We provide foundational skills development using evidence-based practices that aim to build the capacity of our youth and civic leaders.
KEYSS = Knowledge Exchange for Youth Supporting Society
Our journey to empowering youth in Saudi Arabia and inspiring a generation of active citizens with strong values, begins with coaching them on self-awareness, helping them in discovering their purpose, and supporting them to learn and practice new skills while engaging in impact projects within their communities.
The KEYSS Project aims to enable and empower our youth in the region to build positive lives and communities.
The KEYSS Project bridges the gap between challenges for youth and social & economic goals of the Saudi Vision 2030 through training, resources, and community engagement.
Why We Start With Purpose
The KEYSS Project Team
I began my personal mission of building the third sector capacity in Saudi Arabia in 2011 when our team, under a grant from the US Department of State, introduced the concept of social entrepreneurship to the Kingdom. Since then, I have personally trained thousands of our youth and am committed to helping them find their purpose.
The KEYSS Project allows me to scale and grow this work exponentially, but also pays tribute to some of the outstanding, impactful projects currently taking place throughout our communities across the Kingdom. The time is now to give thanks to, and build capacity of, our third sector of whom are feeding our hungry, caring for our orphans, ensuring the elderly have their medications, and our special needs children obtain the support they need to thrive. We have countless noble causes, and we must work together to build a generation of empathetic and skilled leaders to advance our society.
One of the most exciting targets of our Vision 2030 is to build third sector capacity; which includes NGOs, NonProfits, and social enterprises. It is my honor and privilege as a female founder, a Misk 2030 Vision Leader, and a humble citizen of this great Kingdom to give back through an initiative that brings global standards to our youth while maintaining our culture, our traditions, and our values.
Live with Passion, but most importantly Live with Purpose.
