Doha College

Over the years, Doha College has raised awareness and funds to help our fight against avoidable blindness.

Hrh the Countess of Wessex and Orbis Visit Doha College

Established in 1980, Doha College is one of the leading British curriculum schools in Qatar, for students aged 3 to 18. Doha College was the first school in Qatar to introduce The Duke of Einburgh’s Award in 1998 - the programme works with over 300,000 young people every year, helping them to develop skills for life and work.

In 2015, HRH the Countess of Wessex visited Doha College in her role as Global Ambassador for the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness, and as Global Ambassador for the Duke of Edinburgh International Award. The visit was held during World Sight Day to raise awareness on our fight against avoidable blindness, as well as to meet the students participating in the Award.

The Story Continues

Orbis and Doha College’s story continued through the years. In 2016, to once again celebrate World Sight Day and raise awareness, children from Doha College participated in blindfolded lunches and blindfolded PE lessons.

In 2017, Doha College students were invited to tour the Orbis Flying Eye Hospital when it visited Qatar. They enthusiastically took part in a learning session where they received first-hand accounts of sight saving activities from our amazing staff who work aboard the plane.

The students have raised more than QAR 16,000 (over £3,500) to support Orbis through the fundraising campaign led by Qatar Charity.
