Educators Without Borders (EWB) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), Tuesday, December 17th, 2019 with Emirates College for Advanced Education (ECAE) in Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates capital. The move aims to strengthen mutual co-operation in the fields of promoting the skills of educators and development of education programs within crisis zones.
Dr. Karima El-Mazroei, head of EWB organisation and Dr. Ibrahem Al-Hajary, director of the ECAE signed the MoU in the Abu Dhabi-based college.
The MoU seeks to leverage the potential of both parties in order to equip teachers and allow teaching and administrative cadres, including students, to voluntarily participate in efforts to improve education quality within operation areas and contribute in various international events.
Through the MoU, both parties seek to promote and facilitate research efforts, make use of the full capabilities of both entities and exchange experience, with the ultimate goal of achieving the strategic visions of both EWB and ECAE.
Also, in accordance with the agreement, lessons, lectures and workshops will be organised for parents and caregivers to provide them with educational, social, psychological and cultural support.
The Geneva-based EWB is an NGO that focuses on providing educational services for students, and training for educators to enable them to work proficiently and ensure sustainability within operational areas. It also provides literacy programs.
The organisation depends on volunteer educators and others in order to contribute as a new generation that is able to help vulnerable and uneducated groups.
EWB represents the commitment of educators worldwide to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly the fourth one which is related to the provision of quality and comprehensive education to all by 2030.
