The third sector in general requires infrastructure organizations to meet development and sustainability needs. Sanad stands as the pioneering and sole institution in the Arab society that recognizes the imperative of developing the third sector within our community. As an infrastructure institution, Sanad provides associations with invaluable training, support and guidance. Additionally, it equips them with essential tools, professional knowledge, management methodologies, and fosters the establishment of diverse partnerships.
