About the Cause

Dubai Cares’ programs are designed to reduce, if not remove, the greatest obstacles that prevent children and young people in developing countries from attaining quality education. With each intervention, Dubai Cares evaluates the need for assistance across two key areas: 
 
Access to Education which allows Dubai Cares to improve children’s health and learning environment, increase education enrollment and attainment, increase access to education, reduce absenteeism, increase gender parity and increase promotion rates.
 
Quality of Education which enables early learning, enhances educational attainment and school progression, improves literacy and numeracy skills among children, enables teachers to access teacher training resulting in better learning outcomes, reduce dropout rates and increase primary school attainment.

Dubai Cares is a long-term advocate of safeguarding children and young people’s right to education and is currently playing a global advocacy role in spreading the knowledge about the importance of providing education to the unprivileged children.
We also champion education through research - There is an overwhelming lack of evidence as to what works to promote children’s learning in crisis-affected contexts. Research plays a pivotal role in tackling this issue.
 

My Story

My name is Ayaan. I am a 16-year-old, Indian American High School Student. Every year, my family and I travel to Bhopal, a small city in India. When I was young, I never really understood the concept of poverty and the difficulties that people had to face in developing countries. As I have gotten older, I have become more perceptive to the realities of the world and how many, if not most people in the world do not have the opportunities that have been given to me. In my last two trips to Bhopal, the monsoon season was very harsh, the lightning was turning on the lights in the house and the roof felt like it would cave in. I want to be able to make a difference in the lives of the unfortunate by fundraising for the Dubai Cares Organization for their operations.

A big thanks to our supporters
