Student Shopping Festival

The first student shopping festival opened yesterday at the Night Market in Al Duhail with the participation of 24 students from 22 government and private schools.

The participation is aimed at enhancing students’ investment attitude and encouraging their love for work.

Salah Al Yafie from Tarbiya Center, one of the partners and supervisors of the initiative, said that the idea is unique.

“We chose the best group of students and trained them to acquire a number of marketing, selling and purchasing skills. Then we went on a business trip to China to get a close look at the most famous international markets there. Many Chinese goods were bought and brought to Doha to be sold in the Qatari market by the students themselves.”

Talal Al Tamimi, one of the organisers of the initiative, explained that organising of such a student festival comes with the aim of pushing students to the field of honest work, relying on themselves.

“We received training courses and then travelled as a group of students to China’s Quanzhou city, which is famous for markets and trade fairs under the supervision of the participating centers with the Ministry of Education schools,” said Khalid Hamad Al Madfaa, a 12-year student, from Al Hayat International School.

He also said that during the trip to China, they bought a wide variety of accessories. “We succeeded in our investments,” he added.

“The idea of the initiative and the festival is a unique idea, and for the first time students participated in it. The place of the market is also suitable and the shops are well prepared for sale, purchase and auction. We have a wide variety of products,” said student Abdullah Rabia Al Kuwari.
