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

I was lucky enough to meet Rob Burns, CEO of The First Group (TFG), through our wives a number of years ago in Dubai. Rob is a man of great adventure, vision and a passion for social responsibility and I had the privilege to be invited to participate in the inaugural TFG 7 Emirates Cycle Challenge in 2021 which was motivated by Rob's desire to raise awareness and support The Rashid Center for People of Determination. The Rashid Center provides unique therapeutic and educational programs for children of determination that enable them to enjoy success scholastically and socially. In 2022 Rob and the team at TFG are extremely pleased to form a partnership with Dubai Cares for the second TFG 7 Emirates Cycle Challenge which greatly broadens the ability to make a difference in the lives of children around the world. The Dubai Cares unparalleled Early Childhood Development Program includes country-based interventions that support learning, school readiness, physical, cognitive, and social and emotional development through multi-sectoral approaches. 100% of funds raised will go to support these extraordinary causes that impact the lives of children globally. Once again Rob has assembled a great bunch of people for the ride and I feel privileged to be able to participate in the event again this year and to be able to do something for Dubai Cares and The Rashid Center. Your donation will truly make a difference, please dig as deep as you can. Regards, Wayne

A big thanks to our supporters
