Introduction to the Orphan Care Center “Dreama”

The State of Qatar has been keen to adopt a rights-based approach and has worked to provide an environment that allows the well-being of children to be achieved, by following the necessary measures to supervise and monitor their implementation

The permanent constitution of the State of Qatar defines the components of society based on the pillars of justice, charity, freedom, equality, and good morals. 

The constitution also specifically affirmed the state’s responsibility to children, where the article (22) stipulated that: “The State shall provide care for the young and protect them from corruption, exploitation, and the evils of physical, mental and spiritual neglect. The State shall also create circumstances conducive to the development of their abilities in all fields based on a sound education.”

The Center, based on Qatar National Vision 2030, was keen to develop the message, procedures, and strategies to meet the needs of the Vision and its four pillars of human development, social development, economic development, and environmental development, in line with the country’s distinguished efforts in all vital fields. The third national development strategy 2024-2030 was based on establishing an integrated, effective and sustainable social protection system to all segments. The family continues to constitute the compass of social policies in the country, so great interest has been given to orphans who lack family support.
