Chairperson of Education Above All (EAA) HH Sheikha Moza bint Nasser announced a new strategy for Educate A Child (EAC) programme to help secure universal primary education during a speech at EAA’s plenary session at the World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE 2019) on Thursday.
The new strategy will be implemented in select countries with the purpose of ensuring the number of out-of-school children in these countries reaches zero.
“Education Above All is launching a new strategy to be implemented in selected countries, with the aim of ensuring the number of out-of-school children in these countries reaches zero,” Sheikha Moza said, adding that “By doing this, we can prove that nothing is impossible if we all determine that education truly is above all.”
“Since its launch at WISE in 2012, the Education Above All Foundation embodied the spirit of innovation and developing and implementing its programmes. Indeed, EAA has succeeded in enrolling 10 million children back into school. However, according to official statistics, there are still more than 59 million primary-aged children around the world who are not enrolled in schools. In reality, this number is much larger because there are large numbers that haven’t been mapped. The statistics lagged behind actual numbers. Many children go unaccounted for due to inadequate monitoring mechanisms and most of these children are in areas hard to reach,” Sheikha Moza said.
“Through this we prove that nothing is impossible if we all decide that education is truly above all.”
In addition, Sheikha Moza highlighted the development of portable multi-functional schools designed by the late architect Zaha Hadid and equipped for the families of refugee children to use for education community engagement.
The prototype model was made to be affordable, adaptable to different climate conditions, easy to compact for transporting from one location to another, the official said.
After the session, Sheikha Moza officially unveiled the prototype classroom during her tour of the WISE Majlis.
EAA and Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy (SC) have partnered to fund the construction of the structures which will be used during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 and then redistributed to EAA projects in many countries.
