The Ministry of Education has finalized preparations for opening a school uniforms factory in Khoms city, east of Tripoli.
The factory is among the investment projects approved by the Board of Directors of the Social Solidarity Fund, affiliated with the Education Department of Khoms, the education Ministry explained on Facebook.
The regulations of the Social Solidarity Fund allow its governing board to carry out investment projects and benefit from the yields of that investment.
Many of the regional education departments have established the fund referred to under the Labour Act No. 12 of 2010, but the law was only activated in 2017.
The ministry reaffirmed it had dedicated its efforts to create a fund that would benefit teachers from all regions.
In this regard, the ministry has worked to develop a comprehensive uniform regulation of the fund and sought to obtain the approvals from the Ministry of Finance to ensure better health and social services for teachers, the Ministry of Education noted.
