About the Project
The Medersat.com program guarantees a year of pre-school education in poor rural areas, followed by a six-year curriculum leading to the Certificate of Primary Education (CPE).
In remote rural sites, this program aims to provide quality education that is in harmony with the local cultural environment and open to the universal values of the “Medersat.com” schools (61 to date). The schools form a network that is connected to the Internet via satellite and managed by an administrative coordinator.
The 420 Medersat.com teachers are overseen by 12 educational supervisors. Education monitoring and real-time management of the school network is facilitated by an information system. The pedagogical design is based on a modern pre-school, open to children aged four and a half.
* The project received the special mention for “access to education”. This emphasis reflects the support of Qatar Foundation Chairperson Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser for United Nations Millennium Development Goal (MDG) 2 on achieving universal primary education.
