The ambassadors of a number of Arab and European countries, representatives of international organizations, business quarters and the UNESCO office in Moscow, as well as Russian goodwill ambassadors have been invited to the presentation which will take place on January 22. Speeches will be delivered by representatives of the Chechen Republic, the Russian Foreign Ministry and the Ministry of Education.
"The aim of the presentation is to attract finances of the potential donors to implement the project in connection with the opening of the UNESCO's special account," said Yakovenko.
He reminded the reporters that Russia's cooperation with UNESCO in the sphere of the restoration of the educational system in the Chechen Republic started in 2001. At that time, the achieved accords between President Vladimir Putin and UNESCO Director General Koichiro Matsuura resulted in the signing of an appropriate agreement.
The project that followed the agreement provided for raising the level of training of the staff-members of the Chechen Ministry of Education and for completely staffing the Institute for Improving Teachers' Qualification. The project provides for introducing information technologies in the educational process and for creating a potential for psychological, pedagogical and medical sociological rehabilitation in extreme situations.
According to Yakovenko, the secretariat of the Russian Commission for UNESCO will prepare special thematic booklets and compact discs for the coming presentation of the project.
