Al-Saad Foun­da­tion signs agree­ment with UNESCO

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

Al-Saad Foun­da­tion for Knowl­edge and Sci­en­tific Re­search said that it signed an agree­ment of co­op­er­a­tion with the United Na­tions Ed­u­ca­tional, Sci­en­tific and Cul­tural Or­ga­ni­za­tion (UNESCO) for sus­tained de­vel­op­ment and woman em­pow­er­ment.

Foun­da­tion pres­i­dent Sheikha Fadiya Saad AlAb­dul­lah Al-Sabah said the agree­ment was made per the rules and in­struc­tions re­lated to UNESCO’s re­la­tions with sim­i­lar or­ga­ni­za­tions that were ap­proved by the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s gen­eral as­sem­bly in 1991.

She fur­ther in­di­cated that UNESCO’s ac­cep­tance to sign the co­op­er­a­tion agree­ment came due to the clear link be­tween the foun­da­tion’s ac­tiv­i­ties with the cur­rent pro­grams and pri­or­i­ties, par­tic­u­larly in the ed­u­ca­tional field for sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment and women in the field of sci­ence.

Fur­ther­more, she said that the foun­da­tion is a pri­vate body that com­ple­ments the role of var­i­ous en­ti­ties re­spon­si­ble for sup­port­ing the prin­ci­ple of ed­u­ca­tion and de­vel­op­ment for the ser­vice of the Kuwait so­ci­ety, through boost­ing the par­tic­i­pa­tion re­spon­si­bil­ity and seek­ing in­ter­na­tional part­ner­ship with ex­pe­ri­enced es­tab­lish­ments in this field.

Sheikha Fadiya said the goal of co­op­er­a­tion with var­i­ous con­cerned author­i­ties is to raise the lo­cal cadres’ ef­fi­ciency and meet na­tional needs, adding that the pri­vate sec­tor must have a role in ac­tive con­tri­bu­tion to the ser­vice of the Kuwait so­ci­ety. More­over, she hoped to form a Kuwaiti na­tional team that has dis­tin­guished pro­grams and ex­pe­ri­ence, so that it can con­trib­ute to deepen and de­velop sci­en­tific ex­change in the ed­u­ca­tional, pro­fes­sional and ed­u­ca­tional fields.
