HE Ms Buthaina bint Ali Al Jabr Al Nuaimi, Minister of Education and Higher Education has underlined that education is a basic right for children both in times of stability and crisis. HE pointed out that education for children in times of emergency is in essence related to more than the right to education, as it provides them with psychological support and stability to help them overcome the traumas they face every day. 

HE pointed out, at the "Education and Learning in Times of Emergencies and Protracted Crises" session within the activities of the "Transforming Education Summit", which was called for by the UN Secretary-General to be convened in New York on September 16, 17 and 19, that education provides a sense of life returning to normal, enhances resilience, supports long-term recovery processes and rebuilds a better future.

HE the Minister of Education presented an overview of Qatar's "Rasikh" initiative, the new digital learning platform launched by Qatar Foundation in partnership with the Ministry of Education and Higher Education, in cooperation with the Republic of Djibouti and the UNESCO Regional Office in the State of Qatar.

This platform connects all teachers and local institutions in the State of Qatar, from the public and private sectors and other key institutions, in a codified mechanism to establish knowledge that can immediately reach the classrooms. The content was developed by teams of educators in the field of general education (kindergarten to twelfth grade) with local expertise in both Arabic and English. The content includes links with the relevant sustainable development goals, and the context of their impact in the State of Qatar with detailed links to the study curriculum to facilitate its use in schools.
