The involvement of Saudi girls in national development has been on the rise, with female youth playing vital roles in various sectors, including volunteering and community service. This initiative ensures equal opportunities for both male and female youth in Saudi society, Al-Mudaires added.

He praised Princess Sama bint Faisal bin Abdullah, chairwoman of the Saudi Girl Scout Committee, for her efforts. “Princess Sama’s dedication to ensuring the presence of girl scouts in diverse volunteer activities has been instrumental in their achievements and contributions,” he noted.

During the 2023 Hajj season, 150 girls from the Saudi Girl Scouts Committee volunteered at King Faisal Hospital in Makkah and guided pilgrims in collaboration with the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah.

This initiative underscores the commitment to empower and support Saudi girls, enabling them to excel and contribute meaningfully to society.
