Inauguration of schools in Tunisia, restored with Kuwaiti funding
TUNIS-- Kuwait's Ambassador to Tunisia Ali al-Dhafiri on Thursday inaugurated schools in Tunisia's inner provinces of Qairawan, Mahdia and Siliana that have been rebuilt with Kuwaiti funding as part of a restoration project.
The project included the restoration and maintenance of schools in Tunisia's inner regions, and equipping those buildings with latest technology, which positively affects the educational process, Al-Dhafiri said.
The first phase of the project was funded by the Foreign Assistance Committee in the Kuwaiti Cabinet, in coordination with the Tunisian Ministry of Education, while other Kuwaiti donors will contribute to the financing of the second phase, he explained.
Ambassador Al-Dhafiri considered the project as a confirmation of Kuwait's keenness on contributing to development in Tunisia.
In late 2015, the Tunisian Education Ministry launched a national project to renovate and improve all Tunisian schools, especially in the interior provinces.
