Manama, September 13, 2011
A new programme is set to be launched to train Bahrainis to become Quran tutors, said senior government officials.
A meeting was held to discuss the scheme at the Justice, Islamic Affairs and Endowments Ministry.
Present were ministry Islamic affairs under-secretary Dr Fareed Almuftah, Tamkeen human capital development senior manager Amal Kooheji and other officials.
The programme will focus on improving the socio-economic status of young Bahrainis by improving their knowledge, skill and experience of learning the Quran, said officials.
The initiative will train a core of 250 students over a five-year period. It will include tutors, mentors, supervisors and Quran competitions for both genders.
It will seek to use latest techniques during the initial training, making use of a wide range of technologies available, said officials.
Once fully trained, the students will be expected to pass on their knowledge, ultimately benefiting up to 20,000 new students across 225 Quran centres. – TradeArabia News Service
