A three-day workshop was recently held in N’Djamena to train 24 Koranic school teachers from Chad in interactive teaching methods.  Instruction was provided by an American non-governmental organization, Salam Institute, with funding from the USAID Peace through Development (PDev II) project.  The American instructor and Vice-President of Salam Institute, Dr. Amr Abdalla, was assisted by Chadian imams who had participated in previous training workshops under PDev II.   Deputy Chief of Mission for the U.S. Embassy and the USAID Country Program Manager handed out completion certificates to participants at the June 19 closing ceremony.
