Strategic Alignment to Local and Global Frameworks
Promotes Locally Universal Values for Global Citizenship:
Inspired by His Highness the Late Amir Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmed Al Jaber Al Sabah, recognized globally as the ‘Leader of Humanitarian Action’ by the United Nations in 2014, Bareec’s curriculum cultivates local educational values stemming from the Tolerant Islamic Faith that promotes moderation and in consistent with the internalization of key universal values enshrined in the United Nations Charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights such as Tolerance, Peace, Freedom, Equal Rights, Social Progress and Human Dignity.
Bareec is also inspired by UNESCO’s Global Citizenship Education (GCED), which aims at “empowering learners of all ages… to become active promoters of more peaceful, tolerant, inclusive, secure and sustainable societies.”
Bareec’s Vision and Mission are consistent with the Speeches of His Highness the Late Amir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmed Al Jaber Al Sabah:
- “The development of education is not limited to education officials or the government, but is the result of a joint effort by all stakeholders in society.”
- “Supporting teachers and members of the educational system in Kuwait will motivate them to bear their responsibilities towards a promising future and building capable generations that realize and value their own responsibilities in supporting the journey of education in the country.”
- “What we hope to achieve is a qualitative leap in our educational system from the traditional model based on memorization to an active and distinct educational model based on thinking, creativity, interaction and the acquisition of skills and expertise; which contributes to our country Kuwait keeping pace with scientific and technical developments, and being an effective participant in the modern era of science and knowledge-based economy.
