(MENAFN - The Peninsula) Seventeen female volunteers have joined hands to renovate a house for Reach Out To Asia's (Rota) 'Reach Into Qatar' pilot project which began on Friday.

Sponsored by Msheireb Properties, the project aims to extend community development assistance across Qatar outside Doha.

The eight-day renovation will see a full makeover for one of the less fortunate families in Sailiyah.

The volunteers' tasks include cleaning out the house, scraping and plastering the walls before painting them, and assembling and installing new furniture.

Qatar Foundation's Facilities Management Directorate is contributing by carrying out essential maintenance and repairs.

"Rota's Volunteer Programme activities aim to develop skills of volunteers, raise their awareness of community needs and engage them in a meaningful and positive way.

"Renovating homes allows us to achieve this while making a tangible and sustainable impact on the quality of life of less fortunate families in our community," says Rota National Programmes Director Mohammed Saleh.

Fatma Almutawa, one of the volunteers, said, "We are proving that we, the girls of Qatar, can do something for others. We can work with our hands and we are serious about what we are doing. Rota's initiative has given us a great chance to experience the real meaning of giving."

Kholoud Khalil, another volunteer, added "I have always believed in giving back to the community and was excited to help a family in need of a better home.

"When Rota asked for volunteers for the project, I was ready to take on the challenge of renovating a home for a deserving family."

In the first pilot year of the project, 'Reach Into Qatar' will focus on providing quarterly house renovation for needy families in communities across Qatar. The project is in line with Rota's goal of developing high impact, sustainable, quality, cost-effective and innovative programmes based on research, responding to changing environments and reflecting priorities of local communities.
