The Ministry of Labour & Social Development pays much attention to the provision of care for the disabled. The Ministry received additional support and motivation in light of the national reform project launched by His Majesty King Hamad Bin IsaAl-Khalifa, the King of the country, may Allah sustain him. Civil society and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) also play an important role in providing different types of care for the disabled such as social, health and cultural care as well as in training and qualifying them so that they would be able to integrate into society and the business market. The Ministry has not neglected the role of the laws and legislation issued to protect the right of citizens with disabilities to get their basic needs.


To fulfil its mission, the Ministry works very closely with the governmental institutions which play important and major roles in the qualification process. It also works with civil society organizations in addition to the private sector. In this way roles are integrated in the form of a partnership among all parties.
