Damascus, SANA – The Ministry of Education and Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) signed on Thursday a MoU that aims at framing the cooperation in the field of implementation of projects and programs to improve school environment.
The MoU also aims at boosting the capabilities of the administrative and teaching staffs, activating the role of parents in Basic Education schools and kindergartens, improving education quality, supplying schools with teaching equipment and requirements, raising the students’ health awareness level and supporting the establishment of early childhood clubs.
