EYEAFRICA TV: News York, USA: Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, Qatari Emir Tuesday said his country would provide “quality education” to one million girls by 2021, Qatar’s official QNA news agency said.

Emir Al Thani also laid emphasis on Qatar’s “Educate a Child” program, which recently succeeded in providing some 10 million marginalized children with access to primary education.

He announced the initiative while participating in a roundtable discussion on women’s education held on the sidelines of a UN General Assembly meeting currently underway in New York.

Participants at the roundtable discussed ways of eliminating the huge obstacles preventing girls and women; especially those in crisis-prone areas from obtaining quality education.
