Queen Rania's working visit to Turkey: February 23-24, 2006
 
I found this in yahoo.news:

http://www.turkishpress.com/news.asp?id=108398

JORDAN’S QUEEN RANIA TO VISIT TURKEY Jordan’s Queen Rania El Abdullah, who has spearheaded many important projects on women, children, families and education, will visit Turkey on Feb. 24 as the guest of honor of the Mother Child Education Foundation’s (ACEV) campaign to promote universal kindergarten. Many domestic and foreign economists, academics, investors, businessmen and media representatives are expected to take part in the conference, which will last one day. Early childhood education’s role in brain development and its continuing influence during adolescence will be discussed. /Aksam/

Thank you for that information, asturiana. I think this will be Rania's 3rd visit to Turkey, although I'm not sure.

Beautiful pictures!
I thought the Queen wouldn't be in Turkey until tomorrow.

Little_star 02-23-2006 11:38 AM

Thanks for the pictures, they are lovely.
I was under the same impression too, Humera, I'm sure the original date was the 24th of February. Not that i'm complaining about getting pictures a day early!

Humera 02-23-2006 11:40 AM

we're still right.
According to the Turkish article, the conference is tomorrow.

JORDAN’S QUEEN RANIA ARRIVES IN ISTANBUL
Queen Rania El Abdullah yesterday arrived in Istanbul on a private plane for an unofficial visit. Queen Raina was welcomed by Istanbul Governor Muammer Guler’s wife Neval Guler, Deputy Governor Hasan Duran and Istanbul representative of the Foreign Ministry Fazli Kesmir at Ataturk Airport.

First off, the photos of Queen Rania are wonderful. I'm glad to see her in Turkey participating in this very worthy program. I found the website provided by Humera fascinating and highly recommend it to those interested in learning more about education in Turkey. The "7 Is Too Late" Initiative is excellent. From the site:

The child's cognitive, social, physical and emotional development is almost completed within the first 6 years of life. Compensating for a lack of education and stimulation within these years, later on in life, is almost impossible.
Children who do not have access to preschool education have an increased likelihood of being unsuccessful at school, of dropping out and of experiencing social adaptation problems later on in life.
Children who live in disadvantaged socio-economic conditions are already at high risk developmentally. Unfortunately, only 14% of preschool aged (for 5-6 age groups) children have access to preschool education in Turkey. Although these children are those most in need of support early on in life, they have the least access to early childhood education. It is therefore most important that these children be provided with a chance to have a 'fair start' in life by being given equal opportunity to access preschool education.

• More Info »»»
Mothers and fathers—as a child's first educators in the home—play a crucial role in their child's development.
Parents may need support in the area of child development and education to contribute to their child's development.
But if we take a look at the general education portrait of Turkey, we see that the need for support and education goes beyond parent training. In Turkey, while the average number of years spent in formal education is less time than 5 years, there are still over 7,000,000 individuals who cannot even read or write their own names. It is therefore very difficult to focus solely on early childhood education in a context in which millions of adults (mostly women and mothers) are unable to express themselves effectively and who have had little or no formal education.
For this reason, AÇEV also focuses on and trains parents and teachers--those who comprise the child's immediate environment--and aims to empower them in their roles as educators


It will be very interesting to read about what transpires at this forum. Queen Rania, thanks to her work with children and education, has a great deal to contribute in this particular arena. If she makes any remarks, I hope someone will post them as it would be good to hear what she has to share about the challenges and successes Jordan has encountered--as well as what other participants also think. The importance of making a positive, substantive impact on children and ensuring they are properly educated and well treated is vital--perhaps now more than ever. The "7 Is Too Late" initiative really piqued my interest because it has been established that education at an early age has a direct correlation to, among other things, physical and emotional health, safety, and stable development. This is an excellent conference. Kudos to the attendees and thanks to those who have posted information about it!

Thats true. And I think its the sort of program Queen Rania must want to take inspiration from to start something similar in Jordan, if they haven't already done that.

gorgeous pictures fanletizia! thank you.
I love seeing royals with children. QR is such a natural with them.

Some pictures from yesterday, from newscom. They're quite small, it almost makes me wish for the older bigger version of the their pics with all the watermarks.

The lady next to the Queen in the first pic is Aysen Ozyegin, chairman of the Mother and Child Education Foundation.

Emine Erdogan looks like a very nice and graceful lady. I've seen her only a few times before (during her daughter's wedding and with Asma Assad) but she always comes across as warm and personable.

Little_star 02-24-2006 07:07 AM

Thank you for all the new pictures, they're great, I love the pictures with all the kids, and on an aside, Emine's jacket is a fantastic colour.

She is a nice woman - very old school and her husband is a decent guy - Islamic Welfare background, they have both done huge amounts of work for the under privileged in Turkiye.

A Warm Welcome For Rania from Turkish Pupils

24 FEBRUARY 2006

It was back to school for Jordan's Queen Rania this week, when the stylish royal joined youngsters at a primary school during an official visit to Turkey.
And the attractive mum-of-four, who was in Istanbul to promote Jordanian-Turkish collaboration in the field of early childhood development, clearly had a close affinity with the children, looking on intently as a young pupil showed off her drawing skills.

Older children, welcoming the queen to an education volunteers' foundation, seemed equally taken with their royal visitor, who leaned in close to show her appreciation for the bouquet of flowers she received from a pair of denim-clad students.
WARM WELCOME FOR RANIA FROM TURKISH PUPILS
