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.
Both myself and Maria have been studying together at Dubai College for almost 6 years now, and have been fortunate enough to have ben a part of the rich philanthropic environment it has fostered since day one. A product of this environment has been our own desires to give back to communities around us. As a result, we both volunteer on a weekly basis at children's special needs centres, Jad's Inclusion and Dubai Centre for Special Needs respectively, both to support the children as much as possible on an individual level, and to give ack to the education sector in Dubai, which we are thankful to have supported us, especially in regards to philanthropy. Moving forward, we have our own hopes of establishing a fundraising event for Dubai Cres to continue in this endeavour, assisting education as much as we can for those who need it most. We are both extremely passionate about the cause and will undoubtedly work very hard to make the event a success for Dubai Cares.
A big thanks to our supporters
