Dubai Cares is a UAE-based philanthropic establishment launched in September 2007, which aims to improve children’s access to quality primary education in developing countries. Dubai Cares plays the role of a strategic coordinator, actively engaging with international aid and development agencies to implement comprehensive development programs that promote an integrated approach towards education, providing assistance in the areas of infrastructure, quality of education, health and nutrition, and water and sanitation.
Dubai Cares’ programs are implemented in countries with the highest gap in primary education. Dubai Cares is mobilizing local communities in the UAE through fundraising and volunteer initiatives that support children’s primary education worldwide.
Dubai Cares has partnerships with global NGOs, aid agencies and private corporations, including Care International, Médecins Sans Frontières, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Microsoft, Oxfam, Room to Read, Save the Children, UNICEF and UNRWA.
Dubai Cares implements programs that address a fully integrated approach towards education that include assistance in the areas of water and sanitation, health and nutrition, infrastructure and quality of education. With its comprehensive approach to development, Dubai Cares is helping reduce the underlying causes that prevent children’s access to quality primary education and is providing individuals the tools to overcome both personal and social challenges and to make concrete contributions to sustainable development.
