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.
Starting November 10th, Yoko and I will be trying our hardest to hang on to a small peloton of professional and quasi-professional cyclists for 550 km across all seven of the UAE's beautiful Emirates. In a way, it's something of an analogy for the challenge facing the children who attend the Rashid Center for People of Determination: something that is so easy for the rest of the pack is just so much harder for them. We are excited to support Dubai Cares and the Rashid Center in their important missions. 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. The Rashid Center provides invaluable educational and life training support for a very disadvantaged and important group of people. Having visited the Center, Yoko and I have witnessed the quality and the care with which they treat these often challenged but wonderful children and young adults. The amount of one-on-one support required is truly immense (and costly), and the Center relies heavily on charitable donations to accomplish its noble mission. We hope that our participation in the TFG 7 Emirates Challenge can bring some awareness to the needs of this organization and its students, and a bit of funding as well. Support us all, as we try not to be left behind by the peloton -- both literal and figurative!
