Under the patronage of Princess Sabeeka bint Ebrahim Al Khalifa, wife of his Majesty the King and the President of the Supreme Council for Women, Riyadat Mall has been established to help promote and develop the skills of Bahraini women. Providing this public platform, Princess Sabeeka has sought to empower Bahraini women through Riyadat Mall.
Princess Sabeeka emphasises greatly on the importance of females to being seen as equal to their male counterparts. Riyadat Mall encourages Bahraini females to overcome difficulties and help provide income to support their families and leads to an increase their livelihood and the economic security. The initiative helps promote innovation and creativity amongst Bahraini females and further enhances their talents.
Located in Al Ali, Riyadat Mall has stores and restaurants owned independently by Bahraini females. This project was set up by the Supreme Council for Woman in alliance with Bahraini Development Bank and Bahrain Centre for Industrial Development to help women to find better work opportunities.Through means of Tamkeen subsidies, the businesses are provided financial help and business development advice.
