Yas Island’S Joy Of Eid Initiative Tosee Two Schools Built In Pakistan And Mauritania

Yas Island, Abu Dhabi – 3January2017: Yas Island and Emirates Red Crescent confirmed plans to build two schools in Pakistan and Mauritania,following the success of Yas Island’s Joy of Eid campaign. Once built, the school in Pakistan will accommodate up to 200 students, while the school in Mauritania will accommodate 110 students. Yas Island revealed that funds collected will cover the costs of thetwo schools, including their classroomsand playgrounds. Furthermore, students at Pearl Primary and Yas West Academy schools penned a number of messages and warm wishes for future students. The “good luck” notes, drawn and written by students in grades 5 and 6, will form the basis for a bookthat Yas Island will create, which will then be given to the children of the yet-to-be-built schools, once they start their studies, as a gesture of goodwill from UAE students. “Yas Island’s ‘Joy of Eid’ initiative represented the best of Yas Island and the spirit of joy on which the Island was established,” said Mohamed Abdulla Al Zaabi, CEO of Miral, “The ‘Joy of Eid’spirit which we see on Yas Island daily was extended to children in need through the gift of education and the gift of fun. We are heartened by the generosity that visitors of Yas Island have displayed in supporting the campaign, as well as the spirit of the students from Abu Dhabi who have thoughtfully taken the time to wish these future students in Pakistan and Mauritania, good luck in their studies.” Cristina Jean Calera, a teacher at West Yas Academy said:“This project was a great way to promote respect, compassion and open-mindedness to our students. They had a lot of questions about who their letters were going to and enjoyed knowing they would be a part of greeting those students to their new school.” Thanks to the success of the inaugural campaign, officials at Yas Island have said that they intend to re-launch it in 2017 to extend the Joy of Eid even further and share Yas Island’s legacy of spreading joy, happiness and hopefulness even further. “Yas Island is a place where happiness is commonplace and through this campaign, we hope to extend this joy to children, their families and their communities this year, and for years to come,” added Mr Al Zaabi. Launching on Eid Al Fitr and running until Eid Al Adha this year, Joy of Eid saw smiles generated on Yas Island, and donations that were raisedvirtually on social media via the hashtag #YasJoyOfEid, converted into contributions towards the construction of schools and playgrounds for children in developing countries. The Joy of Eid initiative also saw cash donation boxes pop up across Yas Island’s 16 attractions including YasWaterworld, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and Yas Mall to encourage visitors to share a smile and donate to children in need.
