The Arab League Educational, Cultural, and Scientific Organization (ALECSO) praised on Monday the Gifted Arabs Initiative that has played a significant role in supporting talented individuals across all Arab countries.

The initiative is organized by the King Abdulaziz and His Companions Foundation for Giftedness and Creativity (Mawhiba) in collaboration with ALECSO, which held a General Conference in Jeddah on Monday.

The event was attended by Minister of Education and Vice Chairman of the Saudi National Committee for Education, Culture, and Science, Yousef bin Abdullah Al-Benyan, as well as ministers and heads of national committees for education and science from 22 Arab countries.

The initiative has been instrumental in creating an encouraging environment for talent and creativity in the Arab world for the third consecutive year.

It reflects the Kingdom's commitment to sharing its pioneering experience in discovering and nurturing talented students with the Arab world and supporting Arab youth in utilizing their energies and capabilities.

This is achieved through the development of a specialized assessment to identify talented and creative individuals in the Arab world, taking into account the diverse Arab environment and culture.

The assessment is based on a scientific methodology that incorporates the best global educational practices.

The Diriyah Gate Development Authority (DGDA) has announced the celebration of Eid Al-Adha with various artistic and cultural events designed to entertain and delight residents and visitors.

The celebrations are taking place in iconic locations around Diriyah, including At-Turaif district and Bujairi Terrace.

The festivities commenced on the first day of Eid and will continue for four days, DGDA said in a statement. Engaging live performances, such as the traditional Al-Ardha and Al-Samari and interactive shows in At-Turaif, will ensure entertainment for all who attend and invite everyone to participate in the celebration.

Highlights of the celebration will include Arabian horse shows, Henna, and candy distribution via roaming classic cars, all of which will add to the celebratory spirit, it said.

According to the statement, DGDA will distribute 25,000 cash gifts (Eidiya) and 10,000 Eid chocolate gifts to families and visitors.

DGDA will host events in three parks, each featuring ten pavilions that showcase Diriyah's cultural legacy.

Bujairi Terrace will be a focal point of the celebrations, hosting a variety of cultural events, live musical performances, and art installations. Visitors will have the opportunity to engage in the traditional art of drawing on pottery cups adorned with Najdi inscriptions, and the immersive 'Diriyah Calligrapher' experience will offer a glimpse into the rich cultural heritage of Diriyah.
