The Qatari entity has worked on various projects around the world to boost education for vulnerable communities.

Doctoral students in Somalia are to receive financial support under a new agreement signed between Qatar Charity and the University for Peace of the United Nations (UPEACE).

The move is part of a grant programme from Somalia’s President Hassan Sheikh Mahmoud, which provides 100 Somali researchers with grants for PhD studies over the course of the next three years.

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

Farah Sheikh Abdul Qadir, the minister of education, culture, and higher education for Somalia, Ishaq Mahmoud Mursal, the deputy minister of foreign affairs, and the ambassador of Qatar to Somalia were present at the signing.

“Qatar Charity has become the first organisation that enabled the president to fulfill this promise and today has signed a grant for 40 Somali researchers,” Abdul Qadir said.

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

“The agreement also enhances the spirit of innovation among students.”

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

“Qatar Charity has been working in Somalia for many years and has provided 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.
