Dhow workshops educate children

TRIBUNE NEWS NETWORK

DOHA KATARA hosted informative workshops for children as part of the Second Annual Dhow Festival, recently.

The children attending the workshops learned art and crafts, fishing and Dhow building with traditional tools. The workshops for local schools across Doha, including children from Shafallah, featured traditional story-telling. Twenty schools took part in the workshops. Some of the schools were Al Manar School, the Lebanese School, Khalifa Independent School for Boys, the Qatar Canadian School and Omama Primary School for Girls.

Ahmed al Hitmi, Dhow Festival Committee Manager, said, “Qatar has invested heavily in education.

We want to contribute to this by sharing knowledge from our heritage with our future generations, so that they can carry on this legacy. We are proud to see children enjoying the workshops which bring entertainment to education.” The Dhow Festival which opened on November 13 will conclude at Katara’s Esplanade on Saturday.
