Dr. Salim M. AlMalik, Director General of the Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ICESCO), met with Mr. Saleh Kebzabo, Prime Minister, Head of the Transitional Government of the Republic of Chad, to discuss ways of strengthening cooperation between ICESCO and Chad in the fields of education, science and culture.
The meeting, held on November 27, 2023, in N’Djamena, is part of Dr. AlMalik’s official visit to Chad, which began with the inauguration of the new headquarters of ICESCO’s Regional Educational Center, in the presence of a host of ministers, officials and public figures.
During the meeting, Dr. AlMalik underlined the Organization’s keenness to strengthen cooperation with Chad, particularly in the field of Arabic language teaching, pointing out that ICESCO will turn its Regional Educational Center in N’Djamena into a model for Arabic education in Africa. “The Organization will open two Arabic educational centers in Abeche, in eastern Chad, and Sarh, in the south. Besides, it will strive to open other centers in various regions of the country,” he added.
Dr. AlMalik also expressed ICESCO’s willingness to support Chad in building the capacities of women and young people, ensuring heritage preservation and inscribing historical sites and cultural elements on the Islamic world Heritage List.
For his part, the Prime Minister of Chad described ICESCO Director-General’s visit to Chad as historic, representing a qualitative leap in the cooperation process between ICESCO and Chad. He also commended ICESCO’s willingness to cooperate with his country and its outstanding support for Arabic education and bilingualism in Chad through its Regional Educational Center and other programs.
Moreover, Mr. Kebzabo pointed out that Chadian women need numerous programs and projects, including education programs for girls to address school drop-out, and that Chadian youth need reintegration programs in the fields of entrepreneurship, free enterprise and income-generating projects, as well as in the preservation of the rich heritage sites across various regions of the country.
At the end of the meeting, Dr. AlMalik presented the Prime Minister of Chad with ICESCO shield.
