The women’s event, held at the World Trade Centre, was hosted by Shaikha Manal bint Mohammed, President of Dubai Women’s Establishment, who encouraged women in Dubai to help provide children — especially girls — access to education in the most impoverished countries.

“We in the UAE enjoy the gifts of education and knowledge. Unfortunately, millions, especially young girls, are deprived of these,” she stated.
