Dubai Cares focuses on primary education

08/15/2009 10:30 PM | Staff Report

Dubai: Dubai Cares aims to provide children access to primary education in developing countries and is considered to be the largest NGO in the world dedicated to this cause.

Reem Al Hashemi, Chairperson of Dubai Cares, said: "Limited accessibility to quality education among children in developing countries is a significant issue affecting their progress.

"As part of our endeavour to provide complete integrated education solutions, Dubai Cares strives to eliminate the main underlying issues that prevent access to basic primary education, which is every child's birth right and the foundation of sustained economic growth, sound governance and effective institutions."

Dubai Cares works closely with its international partners to develop and implement education programmes reaching four million children in 20 countries.

Al Hashemi said: "We have received and continue to receive tremendous support from the UAE community through generous donations that have been directed towards the building and renovation of 2,172 schools, training 22,370 teachers, establishing 3,157 Parent-Teacher Associations, creating 489 libraries and distributing 1.3 million books written in local languages."

Dubai Cares' achievements over the last two years also include the 'Volunteer for Gaza' campaign which saw the UAE community come together to help assemble 100,000 school and hygiene kits, and emergency aid.

This year, Dubai Cares has decided to centre its efforts on ensuring the integration and prioritisation of water, sanitation and hygiene in all its educational programmes. In January, Dubai Cares chaired the a roundtable forum in New York on the link between water and sanitation and primary education in the developing world.

About Dubai Cares

Dubai Cares, a UAE-based philanthropic establishment, was launched in September 2007 by His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to improve children's access to primary education in developing countries.

Dubai Cares works in accordance with globally recognised best practices for international NGOs, and has active partnerships with organizations such as Care International, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, OXFAM, Room to Read, Save the Children, Médecins Sans Frontières, UNICEF and UNRWA.

It implements comprehensive primary education programmes in 20 countries including Bangladesh, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Cambodia, Chad, Comoros Islands, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Laos, Maldives, Mauritania, Nepal, Niger, Occupied Palestinian Territories, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Yemen and Zambia, and with Palestinian refugees in Jordan and Lebanon, to help attain the United Nations Millennium Development Goal 2 of achieving universal primary education.
