MADA MEETS QU

Qatar Today - - AFFAIRS > LOCAL -

Qatar As­sis­tive Tech­nol­ogy Cen­ter (Mada), a non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion ded­i­cated to con­nect­ing Per­sons With Dis­abil­i­ties ( PWD) to the world of in­for­ma­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion tech­nol­ogy, has joined hands with Qatar Univer­sity to pro­vide as­sis­tive tech­nol­ogy to dis­abled stu­dents on cam­pus.

“Ed­u­ca­tion is one of the three key pil­lars of our mission at Mada, and many of our ser­vices re­volve around this area,” said CEO Maha Al Man­souri. “We be­lieve that ed­u­ca­tion has the po­ten­tial to pos­i­tively im­pact the PWD com­mu­nity in many ways. It is where the ground­work for so­cial in­te­gra­tion is laid, and it makes PWD and their com­mu­ni­ties aware that dis­abil­i­ties do not sub­tract from ca­pa­bil­i­ties. We are hon­oured to have made a mean­ing­ful im­print on the cam­pus of Qatar Univer­sity and to fa­cil­i­tate ed­u­ca­tional op­por­tu­ni­ties for stu­dents with dis­abil­i­ties.”
