Dubai Cares, part of Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives, has completed another successful edition of its Volunteer Emirates initiative.
The campaign, which supports UAE non-profit schools and education centres, saw more than 200 volunteers from across the UAE come together to dedicate their time and efforts to enrich the learning environment of the Gulf Model School in Dubai. The initiative benefited more than 2,600 Primary schoolchildren by providing desks and chairs for teachers and students; books and playground toys, essential stationery items and backpacks.
“Following the success of our previous community engagement initiatives this year, Dubai Cares is delighted to host another edition of Volunteer Emirates in the Gulf Model School. Our primary objective from this initiative is to ensure that children in non-profit schools and from low-income families have equal opportunities to learn and prosper,” said Abdulla Ahmed Al Shehhi, Chief Operating Officer of Dubai Cares.
Al Shehhi added, “By enhancing the learning environment and providing essential supplies to the teachers and schoolchildren at Gulf Model School, we are confident that teachers and schoolchildren will be encouraged to participate in education with greater enthusiasm and achieve better learning outcomes.
We would also like to thank our passionate volunteers for their continuous commitment in supporting Dubai Cares’ community engagement initiatives.”
S. Reshma, Principal of the Gulf Model School expressed her appreciation, adding, “We are extremely grateful to Dubai Cares for their support towards upgrading the learning environment for our primary schoolchildren, who are from low-income families.
“The school community is truly excited about the new supplies that have been donated by DubaiCares, as it will certainly enhance their learning journeys and contribute towards a more impactful academic experience. We are also thankful to all the volunteers brought together by Dubai Cares, for their time and generosity in supporting our school.”
