World Links Arab Region (WLAR) signed on Monday the 20th of July a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Ministry of Education in Yemen and Al Awn Foundation for Development regarding the joint two-year World Links Teachers' Professional Development (TPD) Program in Yemen for 2009-2011, to train 1200 teachers in the Capital Secretariat, Aden and Hadhramout.

The signing of the MoU was attended by Yemen Education Minister Abdul-Salam al-Jawfi, Executive Director of Al Awn Foundation Adel Ba-Homid and WLAR Chief Executive Officer Reem Bsaiso.

The MoU will be co-financed by Al-Awn Foundation at $430,000 and World Links Arab Region at $120,000, with the Ministry contributing to part of the training expenses, in addition to its in-kind contribution and support.

The program aims to trains teachers to effectively use advanced ICT and gain new skills, such as critical thinking, problem solving, employing research techniques and working collaboratively within groups. Teachers, in turn, pass over these new acquired skills and techniques to their students, who immediately gain these new skills and start producing advanced online content.

Staffed with experts in educational technology and entrepreneurship training, WLAR has so far trained more than 10,000 teachers and educators in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine and Yemen, reaching over 2 million Arab students, and with its proven success, is expanding the program to include more Arab countries in the coming few years.

The signing of the MOU shows the common commitment of the Yemeni Ministry of Education, Al Awn Foundation for Development and World Links Arab Region to equip teachers and students with the necessary technology skills to allow for the growth of a community of life-long learners and knowledge economies.
