Doha, Ad Dawḩah

In a region where failure is looked down upon that success is the only concept that society wants to see, most success stories do have mounting failures preceding them but they are never shared nor discussed. Teaching the youth of Doha to accept the notion of failure as part of their growth is to help reinforce that their dreams shouldn't stop just because they fear that it'll never become reality.
