Doha – Al Jazeera Children’s Channel concluded an agreement with the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) that will give unique learning opportunities to hundreds of thousands of Palestinian children across the Middle East. The new initiative will involve the use of the educational website Taalam.TV, launched by Al Jazeera Children’s Channel in January 2010, across UNRWA schools in Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Gaza and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem. As part of an agreement signed in Doha, students and teachers alike will be able to use tailor-made multimedia by Talaam.TV to support the normal curriculum. The agreement also heralds a long term partnership, under which JCC would provide UNRWA and the young Palestine refugee students with special online educational material in their classrooms. The project was given the green light after Dr. Caroline Pontefract, UNRWA’s director of education and Mahmoud Bouneb, executive general manager of Al Jazeera Children’s Channel, signed an agreement at JCC’s headquarters in Doha.
