Category: Information

As always, Kuwaiti charitable teams have lent a helping hand to many countries around the globe, spreading messages of hope and optimism wherever they go.

In 1999, Kuwait Direct Aid Society have helped the African nation of Tanzania to erect a girls’ high school in the Morogoro region which is over 200 kilometers from the capital Dodoma.

Speaking about this contribution, head of the society’s bureau in Tanzania Dr Adam Othman told KUNA that the establishment of the school was undertaken due to the necessity of such facility in Morogoro.

The society took the decision to ensure that girls were educated in that area, said the official who affirmed that the spread of knowledge and education was an integral part of the society’s mission.

The school consisted of 10 class rooms, six dormitories, two laboratories, a library, and other facilities, said Othman revealing that there were 121 girls currently studying at the school.

Thus far, over 500 students have graduated from the school, said Dr Othman who noted that the society helped provide relief aid to Tanzania on numerous occasions in the past. The Direct Aid Society, also known as the African Muslim Agency, began its operations in 1981. It is a Non-Government Organization (NGO) which was established by the late Kuwaiti philanthropist Abdulrahman Al-Sumait.
