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.
Jordan currently hosts the second highest number of Syrian refugees in the world (89 refugees per 1,000 inhabitants). It is reported that only 69% of children aged 0-6 have access to pre-primary care in Jordan, and this number is even lower amongst the Syrian community. The importance of Early Childhood Education (ECE) cannot be emphasized enough. For children affected by conflict, Early Childhood Development (ECD) programs offer crucial psycho-social support. In addition, data has confirmed access to ECD programs not only improves school outcomes in the later years, but in the case of Jordan, investing in ECD yields a 9 times return on investment (calculated by future wages).
