Qatar Charity (QC) has received recognition from the Ministry of Education of Niger Republic for projects undertaken to improve educational infrastructure in the country.

Qatar Charity received the accolade in a ceremony held at the Educational Inspectorate headquarters in the Nigerien capital Niamey on the occasion of the country’s national day in appreciation of the QC’s significant efforts in supporting education during 2011-2012 academic year.

Niger’s minister of education presented a certificate of appreciation to the QC at the event attended by administrators of educational institutions and students. QC’s Executive Director for International Operations Mohammed Mubarak Salem al Adsani said, “This honour is the culmination of Qatar Charity’s efforts in Niger, especially in supporting and developing infrastructure in schools."

He said the charity body would continue to provide assistance to the country in different fields. Qatar Charity constructed 72 classrooms in a number of educational institutions in different regions of Niger in 2011 and 2012. The Niger Ministry of Education considers QC an important partner given the lack of sufficient classrooms for all students in the country.

In an attempt to improve its other services in Niger, Qatar Charity opened bank accounts for all recipients of its sponsorship who include orphans, preachers, teachers and families. The account will prevent the sponsorship funds from falling into wrong hands during distribution process.
