Omani Women Culture Salon
The idea of this Salon is summarised as a group of female volunteers and specialists who are interested in different cultural, political and social issues. In this Salon, viewpoints on a certain issues are discussed with professionals leading to a set of results raised to the decision makers. The importance of this Salon is expressed through its support dedicated to the cultural role played by the Omani Women Associations. This Salon is also important as it draws attentions towards the significance of women role in the development process as an essential pillar necessary for establishing a civil society.
The family institution is an important social establishment that performs a greater task within the community and makes changes to social communities. This establishment is also a social organization known by the individual from an early age. It is almost the foundational pillar of society as it teaches an individual the social values, customs and traditions. In addition, society in turn gives this individual a recognition of identity and sense of belonging.
Based on the role assigned of the Omani Women Association in Muscat to support and promote this trend, the Association sees that it is important to develop a Comprehensive Awareness Program to help developing the woman status within her family and decide ways of strengthening her role in maintaining family cohesion.
This can be conducted through enabling the Association volunteers via organizing, motivating, training and qualifying them to perform their work efficiently and effectively as well as to increase their skills and experience. Moreover, during the period from 21/08/2016 to 1/09/2016, a training program was run on leadership and planning ability development and implementing the volunteer programs during. This program is part of the campaign “ANA AMANA” that consists of three other programs within the campaign. This aims to provide cognitive framework of scientific and practical tools that enable them to strengthen the Association role and achieve those expectations.
We call on the Omani women everywhere in the village, the city, in urban areas, the desert, the valleys and mountains to buckle up and contribute in the movement of the economic and social development, according to her ability, capacity, experience and skill and its place in society because the homeland needs all the hands in order to continue the march of progress, development, stability and prosperity.
