About the Cause

Gender equality is a cross-cutting theme in all Dubai Cares’ education programs with an approach that aims to secure equal access for boys and girls to safe learning environments with adequate facilities, materials and academic support from gender sensitized teachers and communities. 

My Story

Over one million refugees live in Uganda making it the third largest refugee hosting country in Africa. Refugee children are most likely to experience trauma or violence specially with the language barrier. In both refugee and host communities, children are facing barriers in accessing education. Girls tend to drop out-of-school earlier than boys. Reasons include teenage pregnancy, early marriage, distance to schools and fear of SGBV on route to school, and social norms of prioritizing the education for boys over girls.
