Dar Al Atta’a Association opens Community centre to empower women

Muscat: A new community centre has been opened at Al Dhuwaiher in Al Hamra with the aim to empower women through education.
The centre, opened by the Dar Al Atta’a Association (DAA), consists of a classroom where the Holy Quran would be taught, a hall equipped with books and six computers equipped with internet connection.
The project aims to encourage reading and spreading awareness of science and knowledge among the students and the people of the state. The centre will give an opportunity to women who missed out on their studies.
“The centre will also feature classes where the Holy Quran will be taught throughout the year to even the illiterate women in the state. Classes to teach the Holy Quran to children will be undertaken during the summer holidays,” Maryam Al Zadjali, the chairperson of the DAA, said.
The project will be managed by a committee of volunteers drawn from the Ahal Al Khair Team working under the office of Al Hamra State. A teacher to teach the Holy Quran will be appointed by the Ministry of Endowments and Religious Affairs.
Engineer Abdullah Al Mazrooey, a board member of the DAA, gave a speech about the Association’s duties. He informed that the DAA was formed in 2002 and was formally registered as a charity with the Ministry of Social Development in 2006. The creation of Al Dhuwaiher Centre at a cost of more than OMR 22,000 is one of the Association’s achievements.
