Princess Taghrid's Institute for Arts and Handcrafts Development was established to assist
orphans and abandoned youngsters above the age of 18 to start their life in the local
community. We have noticed that this group have been abused and maltreated from the local
community, especially the girls.
From here came the idea of our institution to start training these groups and enable them to
release the creative energies in them in a way that provides them appropriate sustainable
career within their abilities, and build a promising future.
Our ethos is to work with the local community to accept those wonderful young women and
integrate them and acknowledging their strengths and needs with respect and integrity. In
addition to make the local community accept and support this category and consider them like
any other part of the community The institute works with additional challenging groups such as
the disabled and special needs students. We deliver specialized programs that recognize their
abilities and capabilities.
The Institute is also focusing on becoming a cultural resource for Arts and Handcrafts for the
Arab and the Islamic World.
Through training in Reviving Traditional Arts with its quality and designs, we offer
the opportunities for any interested member of the society to explore their talents and
obtain knowledge and skills needed for the traditional and industrial crafts.
