    Somali Magazine- The Qatari company has worked on a number of projects around the world to improve education for underserved populations.

    Doctoral students in Somalia will receive financial assistance under a new arrangement inked by Qatar Charity and the United Nations University for Peace (UPEACE).

    The move is part of Somalia’s President Hassan Sheikh Mahmoud’s grant plan, which will offer 100 Somali researchers with grants for PhD studies over the following three years.

    The document was signed by Abdel Fattah Adam Muallem, director of QC’s office in Somalia, and Professor Samuel Kali, UPEACE’s regional director for Africa.

    The signing was witnessed by Farah Sheikh Abdul Qadir, Somalia’s minister of education, culture, and higher education, Ishaq Mahmoud Mursal, the deputy minister of foreign affairs, and the ambassador of Qatar to Somalia.

    “Today, Qatar Charity has signed a grant for 40 Somali researchers,” Abdul Qadir stated.

    “The education cooperation agreement with Qatar Charity contributes to the investment of Somali intellectual with the goal of contributing to the country’s sustainable development through a package of disciplines that serve the security and peace process while empowering students with skills required for studies and research,” Kali explained.

    “The agreement also fosters an innovative spirit among students.”

    “Qatar Charity pays special attention to the education process in Somalia,” Muallem stated, “as it seeks to contribute to building a brighter future for Somali generations.”

    “For many years, Qatar Charity has worked in Somalia, providing support in the education sector, including building and renovating schools, providing scholarships to Somali students, supporting teacher training programmes, and providing educational materials and supplies,” he added.
