Mohammad Al Sharif, 28 Aqaba

Be Happy Café

After an honorable end to his military career, Mohammad Al Sharif decided to turn his attention toward helping the civilian community by starting his initiative, the Be Happy Café, where a group of local youth volunteer to help the less fortunate and raise awareness about the concept of sustainable development. Handing out food parcels to underprivileged families on a weekly basis, in addition to aiding in the renovation of a local religious youth center and providing much-needed home appliances during the summer months to low-income families are among the initiative's most notable achievements to date. Mohammad and his team participated in the Arab Youth Summit, held in Morocco, in order to further increase the visibility of their initiative and the impact it is creating. In the future, Mohammad envisions expanding the Café into a full restaurant in order to support a larger segment of the local community.
