HI SCODA allies and Atif.

Atif, I have hosted a few SCODA like workshops in Doha Qatar, where I live.
It was well-received. There are a few of us in the MENA region attempting
to stitch together a network of 'data-driven' activities.

This really stems from a community network that IDRC and UNDP are fostering
- http://www.ddi-mena.org/

Ali and Bahia of Data Aurora have been hosting workshops in Arabic
throughout the region. Hopefully they will see this note too.

All the best and keep us posted on your events
