The agreement was signed recently by the Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research, Shaikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, who is also the FCSN’s Chairman, and KCC Director Edmond Kriks.

Shaikh Nahyan stressed on the need to benefit from Germany’s experience in assisting people with special needs in their day-to-day life. He said it was very important to ensure their successful integration in the society. While praising UAE officials for showing great care for this segment of the society, Kriks said the KCC will share with the FCSN its experience in modern methods of taking care of people with special needs.

The FCSN, a non-profit organisation that was established in 2000, is run by a team of highly-skilled specialists and dedicated staff with the main objective of promoting awareness regarding challenges faced by students with special needs. The centre’s mission is to equip individuals with necessary knowledge and skills to enable them to realise their full potential in a safe, secure and stimulating environment in order to enable them to lead a fulfilling life.
