    04-01-2006 1:00 pm In 2005, the Arab Gulf Programme for United Nations Development Organizations (AGFUND)donated US$ 465,000 in order to co-finance the following three UNESCO projects: Early Childhood Development in Yemen; Improving Quality Teaching and Learning in Primary Schools through Diagnostic Teaching Methodologies in Tanzania; and Building National Capacity in Early Childhood Care and Education in Syria through the Set up of National ECCE Resource and Training Centre.

    AGFUND is a regional development institution, established in 1980 upon the initiative of His Royal Highness Prince Talal Bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud, President of AGFUND, and UNESCO Special Envoy for Water. Since the creation of AGFUND, UNESCO has constantly been one of its main partners and UNESCO projects have been a major beneficiary of AGFUND’s funding activities. AGFUND supports sustainable human development efforts, targeting the neediest groups in developing countries in cooperation with UNESCO and other organizations and institutions active in this field.

    To date, AGFUND’s continuous financial support has enabled UNESCO to plan and implement 71 projects, the majority in the field of education, with a special focus on education for women and girls, early childhood care and education, literacy, life skills training and teacher training. Eighty-five countries have benefited from AGFUND’s contributions to the total amount of more than US$ 24 million.
