Dubai Cares engages residents to support its efforts globally to provide access to quality primary education for children in developing countries, and organises a series of local initiatives that offer UAE residents opportunities to give back to communities.

In May, over 100 Dubai Cares volunteers helped improve the learning environment at His Highness Shaikh Rashid Pakistani School in Dubai, where they installed 630 chairs and desks, 21 white boards, 15 bookshelves and 10 air conditioners; painted over 50 classrooms and provided educational toys for 135 students.

Tariq Al Gurg, Chief Executive Officer of Dubai Cares, said: “Inspired by the philanthropic efforts of our founding fathers and leaders, UAE residents harness a very strong spirit of charitable giving and volunteerism, and the response that our local initiatives continue to receive is evidence of this spirit. The UAE in general is very responsive to any philanthropic causes. Volunteer Emirates is one such initiative that UAE residents are always happy to participate in to make a difference for students in the UAE.”

Dr Kamal Farhat, general manager for National Charity Schools, thanked Dubai Cares for the initiative, which serves the UAE community in general and specifically the National Charity School in Dubai. “This initiative will leave a lasting impression on the lives of the children and provide a conducive learning environment within our school. I wish Dubai Cares the very best in achieving their goals and objectives.”
