We're building schools with Dubai Cares
Dubai Cares, part of Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives, is a UAE-based global philanthropic organization working towards providing children in developing countries with access to quality education through the design and funding of programs that are integrated, impactful, sustainable and scalable. Education is more than a human right, it is an irrevocable asset. Yet, 124 million children and young adolescents around the world don’t go to school and a further 250 million children cannot adequately read and write.
Education is one of the most effective tools to break the cycle of poverty, a belief held by our founder His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. It was from this belief and the desire to give children - regardless of their gender, nationality, race or religion - the opportunity to become positive contributors to society, that His Highness established Dubai Cares on September 19, 2007.
"Adopt a School" is one of the Dubai Care's initiatives which aims to provide children in developing countries with access to quality primary education. Last year, a total of 15 schools were adopted in Palestine, Nepal, Senegal and Malawi by corporations and individuals who believe in the power of education to transform lives.
