The Tawasol Centre has launched a national campaign under the slogan 'We became stronger proud of our history', aiming to highlight the history and development of the government sector in Qatar.

The campaign was announced at a press conference on Tuesday held in cooperation with the Media Centre for Youth at the Ministry of Culture and Sports, media partners and a number of local bloggers. Speaking to Qatar Tribune, Ahlam al Mendany from Tawasol Centre said the campaign aims to preserve the Qatari heritage and"document all the developmental stages of the State of Qatar since the independence until now". "All governmental sectors and ministries are contributing with us to this campaign to come up with a valuable collection that includes photographs and descriptions. This will be published in a book format which will be a tribute to the stages we have passed to become what we are now,"she said.

The book will be released on the Qatar National Day this year at a large ceremony which will be attended by several public entities and figures. Ahlam added that the important events the campaign focuses on had contributed effectively to forming Qatar's economy, diplomacy and many other vital fields. She stressed that the non-profit campaign aims only to document the history of Qatar and make all Qataris proud of their heritage. It is worth mentioning that the same group had launched a campaign titled 'The Glory of Qatar' last June and come up with a book in a similar initiative.
