Qatar committed to help other nations provide quality education: Hammadi

Qatar remains committed to its humanitarian and international duties towards countries around the world by ensuring the provision of a high-quality education system, Minister of Education and Higher Education HE Dr Mohammed bin Abdul Wahed al Hammadi said.
He said education helps encourage interaction between people from different cultural backgrounds and enhances the valuing of human rights, justice and peace.
Speaking at the 13th Session of the General Conference of ISESCO in Rabat, al Hammadi shed light on the initiative of the Amir HH Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al Thani to provide education for a million girls around the world by 2021, during a roundtable meeting held on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York last month. He also highlighted the efforts of Education Above All in providing education to 10 million children around the world, through 'Educate A Child' programme.
He discussed Qatar's support to the Palestinian cause, pointing out that Qatar's commitment to the issue and to Al Quds was not limited to condemnations, but extended to material and moral support.
He also noted that the aid provided by Qatar to the Palestinians from 2010-2017 was QR 3.872 billion, in addition to non-governmental support from 2010-2016 that reached QR 2.345 billion.
The minister said that those large sums were directed towards humanitarian, developmental, healthcare, social services, wages, as well as the financing of public agencies. Qatar also provided $50 million to the UNRWA in 2018 to support the education sector, in addition to covering the payments of a number of Palestinian students in Lebanese universities worth a total of $1.
On Al Quds, he highlighted the decision of HE the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs regarding the reformation of the Permanent Qatari Committee for the Support of Al Quds, and the pledge to provide $250 million for Al Quds projects.
The minister noted that Qatar and its wise leadership has paid great attention to education in terms of curriculum development, the use of new technologies, and raising students' morale.
He also highlighted Qatar's good international rankings in terms of quality of education, according to the World Economic Forum's Global Competitiveness Report.
Meanwhile, the minister met with the Minister of Education, Culture and Higher Education of the Republic of Somalia Dr Abdullahi Godah Barre on the sidelines of the 13th session of the General Conference of ISESCO, and discussed cooperation between the two countries and ways of developing them in the fields of public and higher education.
He also met with the Minister of National Education, Vocational Training, Higher Education and Scientific Research of the Kingdom of Morocco Said Amzazi and discussed with him issues of mutual interests.
