Press Conference to Launch ‘Nahda-Based Education’ Campaign, Wednesday
Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood political wing, the FJP, holds an important news conference to kick off a new campaign for an inclusive education overhaul based on Nahda (or Renaissance) Project for real comprehensive revitalization of the whole country.
Wednesday, September 12,2012 06:31

 The Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) is holding a press conference tomorrow (Wednesday) to announce the details of the ‘Nahda-Based Education’ campaign, which focuses in its first year on developing schools and boosting school attendance and activity, as well as creating a better learning environment for students in all governorates across Egypt.

The Conference begins at eleven in the morning, at the party's headquarters, in the presence of the Minister of Education, Dr. Ibrahim Ghoneim; acting head of the FJP, Dr. Essam El-Erian; the FJP’s Secretary-General, Dr. Saad Katatni; and campaign officials.

As the name suggests, the ‘Nahda-Based Education’ initiative stems from President Morsi’s Nahda (Renaissance) Project, which includes – among its main objectives – enhancing education and mobilizing civil society as a whole.

The campaign covers all provinces across Egypt. In order to find out the most appropriate starting points for an effective, real and comprehensive educational overhaul, in the next few years, the FJP recommends holding an expanded scientific conference on education, under the title ‘First Scientific Conference for the Advancement of Education’ and under the slogan ‘Nahda-Based Education’ in January 2013.

That proposed conference should see positive participation by national stakeholders and educationalists, as well as civil society players, businessmen and their establishments, associations and federations, chambers of commerce and industrial institutions, so they would all contribute to the implementation of the conference’s findings, resolutions and recommendations.

The ‘Nahda-Based Education’ campaign will target, in its first year:

- Building schools in disadvantaged areas.

- Providing support for technical industrial and commercial education in cooperation with civil society organizations.

- Boosting education quality as well as attendance and discipline at school.

- Providing important services and facilities in Azhar schools and institutes, such as the maintenance of doors, windows and toilets, and providing seats and desks.

- Providing medical care for students through medical convoys to schools, including medical teams in all areas of specialization.

- Providing social welfare for needy students, including school bags, tools and eye-glasses etc, to motivate them to attend school.

- Supporting gifted students, in collaboration with businesses, businessmen and NGOs.

- Developing schools in some provinces – as necessary – to match the nationwide system of educational requirements and approved quality standards.

- Contributing to the development and activation of educational print and broadcast media, to maximize the effect of the educational process and all its objectives.
