PAAET seeks to em­power women to face chal­lenges

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

The Pub­lic Au­thor­ity for Ap­plied Ed­u­ca­tion and Train­ing (PAAET) is hard at work to em­power women in the Gulf to face con­tem­po­rary chal­lenges, PAAET Di­rec­tor Gen­eral Dr Ahmad Saleh Al-Athari said. Al-Athari made the state­ment at a meet­ing yes­ter­day for the higher com­mit­tee of the sec­ond sci­en­tific and cul­tural fo­rum of stu­dents of the Gulf Co­op­er­a­tion Coun­cil (GCC) univer­sity and ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions.

The meet­ing fo­cused on set­ting the axes and the goals of the fo­rum slated for March 19-23, 2017. The PAAET is mak­ing hard ef­forts to pre­pare for the fo­rum, to en­hance bases of fair com­pe­ti­tion and sci­en­tific in­tegrity in ad­di­tion to high­light­ing cre­ativ­ity and skills of the GCC women in sci­en­tific, eco­nomic and so­cial scenes, he said.

Also, the au­thor­ity seeks more co­op­er­a­tion ac­cords with Kuwait’s Pub­lic Au­thor­ity for Youth (PAY), which is a strate­gic part­ner in sup­port­ing young peo­ple, Al-Athari noted. It also as­pires for con­clud­ing fur­ther agree­ments with ex­ter­nal au­thor­i­ties and seeks to shed light dur­ing the fo­rum on the achieve­ments of the Gulf women, as well as the chal­lenges and ob­sta­cles they are fac­ing.

For his part, PAY Di­rec­tor Gen­eral Ab­dul­rah­man Al-Mu­tairi said that they would of­fer sup­port to youth through ex­perts and spe­cial­ists, to as­sess their be­hav­ior and de­fine their needs dur­ing panel dis­cus­sions, and will also lis­ten to their views, Al-Mu­tairi said. He stressed the fact that PAY is work­ing in line with di­rec­tives of His High­ness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah to sup­port youth. —KUNA
