Jawaher Al Qasimi: Sharjah Ruler has planted seeds of knowledge to enable you to reap its fruits

His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, has designated the enhancement of children’s knowledge as a strategic pillar of the emirate’s cultural project, and books will play a vital role in enabling them to realise their aspirations and take the nation into the future, noted H.H. Sheikha Jawaher bint Mohammed Al Qasimi, wife of His Highness the Ruler of Sharjah and Chairperson of the Supreme Council for Family Affairs (SCFA).

Sheikha Jawaher made the remark while on a visit on Thursday to the 12th edition of the Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival (SCRF), organised by the Sharjah Book Authority (SBA) under the theme, »For Your Imagination« at Expo Centre Sharjah.

Her Highness added that the Ruler of Sharjah has made government departments and state entities equal stakeholders in the process of children’s empowerment by unlocking their promise and potential. By integrating the vital role of parents with that of educational and cultural institutions in fuelling the holistic development of children, the emirate has created a supportive ecosystem that emulates a sustainable global society.

Addressing children, young adults, and parents at SCRF 2021, Sheikha Jawaher said: “His Highness the Ruler of Sharjah has planted the seeds of knowledge to enable you to reap its fruits”.

H.H. Sheikha Jawaher Al Qasimi added: “The Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival is a key component of Sharjah’s cultural project. It stimulates creativity and innovation and serves as a bridge between our children and literature and various arts. Through their interactions with authors and artists at SCRF, children have the opportunity to expand their horizons and become a part of a global intellectual culture that unites all civilised communities”.
