The end of October has marked the book launch of the 8th Those Who Inspire country book. This time, the place chosen to endlessly inspire the local youth and offer them reliable mentors from all walks of life has been the Kingdom of Bahrain.

 

Under the patronage of H.E. Sheikh Hisham Bin Abdulrahman Al Khalifa, The Governor of the Capital Governorate, in conjunction with the Manama Entrepreneurship Week and with the active contribution of the Labour Fund “Tamkeen” as a strategic partner, Those Who Inspire BAHRAIN book was launched on the 22nd of October at the UNESCO heritage site Bahrain Fort Museum.

The purpose of Those Who Inspire is to empower Millennials and to boldly encourage them to pursue their dreams and, above all, believe in themselves.

Giving them with Those Who Inspire Bahrain a book that will allow them to explore a wide spectrum of role models and mentors from their own country.

 

Those Who Inspire BAHRAIN is a powerful tool for Bahraini Millennials for them to learn about experience, mentorship and inspiration… It’s a literal roadmap to the future, paved with storytelling, energy, and life.

 

All the Inspiring Bahrainis portrayed in Those Who Inspire Bahrain, renown or unsung heroes, will share their values and beliefs with the younger generations, will commit to act as mentors through one on one mentoring or participating in talks at universities.

 

For Those Who Inspire they donate their greatest resource of all: time.

“We know from experience that the right kind of inspiration can change the course of a young person’s life. That’s what inspiration is all about, and we are honoured to facilitate that in any way we can,” says Co-Founder & Publisher Delphine Barets.

 

“I just spent around eight months in Bahrain working on Those Who Inspire Bahrain, and I am amazed at how many inspiring Bahrainis I met and how Bahrainis are dedicated to empower their youth,” says Emilia Mirea, Co-Publisher of Those Who Inspire BAHRAIN.
