  • Date: 24 Apr 2019

AMMAN – Under the patronage of the Palestinian Minister of Education & Higher Education, HE Dr. Sabri Saidam and in the presence of HE Dr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh, the first performance of the “Talal Ibn Adeebah” children’s play was presented at Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Knowledge Forum (TAG-KF).

The Cast of the “Talal Ibn Adeebah” play included Palestinian students who came from Nablus, Palestine, to present the play which was organized within the framework of  Palestinian cultural activities held in Amman.

The play is based on the “Talal Ibn Adeebah” story which represents the Palestinian cause depicting the life story of Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh, illustrating the hardships suffered by displaced Palestinians, their strength in overcoming pain, and the challenges they endured to achieve great success armed with patience and determination.

Due to the inspirational and motivational values and important life lessons it disseminates, the story was approved as a part of the  elementary school curriculum in some Arab and western countries. Moreover, some schools, initiated by the Palestinian ones, adapted the story as a children’s theatrical performance attributed to its outstanding educational and moral significance.

On the sideline of the play's first performance, and in a meeting held at Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Global, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh in the presence of Minister Saidam and a host of representatives of the Palestinian Ministry, extended gratitude to the General Director of Student Activities at the Ministry, Mr. Sadiq Al-Khadour for taking the initiative to adapt the story into a theatrical performance which will be presented in different Palestinian cities including Jaffa, the hometown of Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh, the city of Acre, Nazareth and Haifa.

During the meeting, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh was selected as Chair of the Board of Trustees of the Palestinian National School Orchestra, for which he profoundly expressed his pride in accepting this nomination. 

Furthermore, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh presented one thousand TAGITOP devices to students at Palestinian schools to be distributed by the Palestinian Ministry of Education & Higher Education.

It was also agreed that HE Dr. Amin Mahmoud, former minister of Jordan Higher Education and the Senior Advisor on Education at TAG.Global, and the Palestinian Minister Saidam would prepare the ‘Arab Commission for Quality in Education’ project which will be presented at the Education Conference to be held next September in Cairo at the headquarters of the League of Arab States under the patronage of the Secretary-General of the League.  

Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh concluded by expressing enormous pride in the fact that the illiteracy rate in Palestine is the lowest in the world for the age category ranging from (6-24 years old).
