DAR ES SALAAM, Nov. 9 (Xinhua) -- The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in cooperation with a Saudi Arabian non-governmental organization (NGO) has launched a project in Tanzania aimed at supporting culture-related vocational education and training.
The project aims to foster community-based development through culture-related technical and vocational education and training and employment in Tanzania, a UNESCO statement said. The project, which will be implemented between 2023 and 2025, will foster inclusive and sustainable development of the cultural and creative sector of Tanzania through enhanced access to culture-related education and training.
"This project is important to us because it promotes first and foremost the human dimension, the encounter of communities and generations, and the process of learning and advancing together," said Princess Lamia Bint Majid Al Saud, the secretary general of Alwaleed Philanthropies, the Saudi Arabian NGO.
"Through culture-centered education and vocational training, we are setting forth on a path that leads to job creation, poverty alleviation, and community development," said Tabia Maulid Mwita, Tanzania's Zanzibari minister of Information, Youth, Culture and Sports. ■
