  • Contributions in 2006 to UNESCO projects by AGFUND, presided by HRH Prince Talal Bin Abdul Aziz, UNESCO Special Envoy for Water

    03-02-2007 1:00 pm In 2006, the Arab Gulf Programme for United Nations Development Organizations (AGFUND) donated US$ 150,000 for the co-financing of two UNESCO projects: "Improving continuing education in Viet Nam’s communities through ICT" and ”Enhancing the Capacity of Teachers and School Administrators for the Implementation of Inclusive Education (IE) in Cambodia”.

    The Arab Gulf Programme for United Nations Development Organizations (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 been one of its main partners and UNESCO projects have been a major beneficiary of AGFUND’s funding activities. AGFUND supports sustainable human development programmes targeting the poorest groups in developing countries, in cooperation with UNESCO and other organizations and institutions active in this field.

    To date, AGFUND’s 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 a total amount of more than US$ 25 million.
