Qatar Unified Imaging Project Mission
I have come across the Qatar Unified Imaging Project Mission(QUIP), which aims to provide open access to the historical and cultural material of Qatar and to promote awareness and understanding of Qatari history, culture, and heritage.
It is really commendable that such initiatives to understand your cultures and traditions, and the rich history are undertaken. I hope that there is awareness of such projects (there may be many unknown to us).Kudos to all the people involved in such projects.
To quote Marcus Garvey-"A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots."
