Year Of The Fiftieth​​


Children’s programs and values challenge

Inspiring from the efforts exerted by Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, Mother of the Nation, to support motherhood and childhood, and in line with Awqaf’s strategy in consolidating the society’s cohesion and maintaining its identity, and as part of the UAE President Guest Scholars Program, Awqaf organises a symposium titled "Children’s Programs and Values Challenge".

The symposium is held with the participation of preachers, educators, thinkers and specialists in the field of children care in which they will highlight the role played by the media content targeting children and the extent of its impact on their psychological construction, social relations, academic abilities, linguistic interaction, and cultural and moral acquisitions.

The symposium is an opportunity to come up with an innovative future vision of purposeful children’s programs in a step to create an educated generation and a secure society.
