The symposium, organized by the Community Development Department of the Ministry, discussed the importance of reducing illiteracy and raising awareness about the significance of education. It provided an opportunity for relevant authorities, civil society organizations, and stakeholders to discuss and present the major improvements in literacy rates.



Assistant Undersecretary for Social Development Affairs, Ghanim Mubarak Al Kuwari, emphasized the ministry’s keen interest in empowering and facilitating opportunities for those affected by illiteracy by providing them with education and engaging them in public life. He added that the ministry implements national strategies, plans, and policies related to family care, especially for the elderly.



He underscored the ministry’s keenness to celebrate this day to highlight the significance of literacy and education for individuals and communities. He stressed that education plays a pivotal role in community development, providing individuals with the knowledge and skills needed for personal and professional success.



Acting Director of the Community Development Department, Hadeel Al Ajeel, stressed the importance of this annual event, pointing out that various concerned entities use this platform to showcase their efforts, projects, and supportive programs aimed at eradicating illiteracy.



She said that Qatar has made significant contributions to the establishment of numerous educational centers for adult education and literacy, pointing out that the Ministry of Social Development and Family plays a pivotal role in achieving sustainable development and improving the quality of life for individuals affected by illiteracy and directs its efforts and resources towards this goal.
