Filed on October 30, 2020 | Last updated on November 1, 2020 at 04.14 pm

Female athletes in the UAE continue to make strides in a wide range of sports. The year 2020 marks the 10th anniversary of Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Sports Academy (FBMA), one of the largest women's sports organisations in the Middle East. The Academy's first support came from Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, Chairwoman of the General Women's Union (GWU), President of the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood, and Supreme Chairwoman of the Family Development Foundation (FDF), Mother of the Nation, who has always believed in the abilities of Emirati women and has worked on bracing them.

Providing all opportunities for Emirati women empowers them to unlock and refine their talents, which means participating in competitive forums and fields, achieving gains and opening doors that contribute to their leadership to play an active role in the process of developing the society. This development role has been based on a fundamental idea the Academy implemented over the past 10 years. Creating a healthy lifestyle, developing women's sports and a creating a sporting future for ambitious generations in the UAE especially in Abu Dhabi. A journey of giving and moving forward has been formed through several stages in which all goals have been accomplished in a record period of only 10 years.

Her Highness has always bel   ieved that Emirati women are capable of being outstanding and have the strength to transfer their sporting ambition to the world.
