H.E. Minister of Education and Higher Education Dr. Mohammed bin Abdulwahed Al Hammadi praised the United Nations General Assembly's adoption of the proposal made by H.H. Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, Chairperson of "Education Above All" and member of the UN Sustainable Development Goals' Advocates, regarding the allocation of September 9 as "International Day to Protect Education from Attacks", a resolution advocated and led by the State of Qatar to mobilize international support in order to ensure accountability for the persistent and deliberate attacks on education and the armed violence of which children around the world are suffering.
This reaffirms that Qatar is proving that education is the strategic choice that it has taken over two decades ago under the supervision of H.H. Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, H.E. the Minister said.
"The adoption of the draft resolution came during the crisis of COVID-19 pandemic, which had a profound impact on all aspects of life to emphasize the importance of education and schools as a safe haven for children against any attack, especially during armed conflicts targeting educational institutions," His Excellency added.
H.E. Dr. Al Hammadi went on saying, "We thank Her Highness for this proposal and we congratulate her and ourselves for adopting it."
