Saving young people around the world from poverty

“ Access to financial services has been recognised as one of the most critical factors in eradicating global poverty ”, Silatech CEO Hassan Al Mulla notes , as he reflects on the achievements and ambitions of the international development nongovernmental organisation .

Silatech was founded to connect young people to economic services , employment opportunities , and hope for a better future , and has developed into a leading pioneer of global youth empowerment .

“ These structures , when in place , provide thousands of jobs to marginalised young people , those who otherwise would be left susceptible to radicalisation , extremism , and violence . Organisations like Silatech create hope from despair , fostering entrepreneurial environments that are conducive to youth empowerment and enable young people to become agents of change ”.
This is how CEO Hassan Al Mulla summarises the work of Silatech when asked , further noting that the organisation is there to provide the “ resources , skills , and guidance ” that young people need to succeed .
“ My personal favourite moments of success all emerge from seeing the impactful results of our life-changing and inclusionary initiatives . Our motivated teams and strategic partners are all unwavering in our commitment to the core vision of our founder , Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser . Every success we have seen is a testament to our partners and our broad alliances of government leaders , global experts , community organisers , and youth advocates ”.
