Dubai Fitness Challenge - Education Uninterrupted

By Dubai Fitness Challenge

Expired

“Education Uninterrupted” is a nationwide campaign by Dubai Cares and the UAE Ministry of Education that is set to tackle the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on the education of children and youth in the UAE, providing students from low-income families with the necessary tools to join their peers in distance learning from home.

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

Dubai Fitness Challenge (DFC) was launched in 2017 by HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council. This year, DFC is partnering with Education Uninterrupted. The organisation plays a major role in improving the mental wellbeing of children and raising donations for this initiative can help transform lives – aligning perfectly with the objectives of Dubai Fitness Challenge. DFC provides an opportunity for Dubai residents to embark on a path of self-empowerment, encouraging 30 minutes of activity for 30 consecutive days. The challenge invites everyone in the city to enhance their health, fitness and overall wellness with a series of fun and socially-distanced activities. One million people accepted the challenge in 2019, greatly benefitting the overall health of the city, both mentally and physically. Great achievements have been witnessed during every edition of Dubai Fitness Challenge and even more are anticipated in 2020.
