Dubai Cares, part of Mohammed bin Rashed Al Maktoum Global Initiatives, extended its gratitude to the UAE community for its generous support over the past decade.
Dubai Cares also took advantage of this gathering of dignitaries, donors, partners and supporters to outline its achievements over the past decade, honor key donors and supporters who have been continuously supporting Dubai Cares over the years, as well as outline the future plans of the philanthropic organization to address needs and challenges in developing countries across the entire education spectrum.
While its emphasis during its first 10 years has been on supporting primary school-age children, as a key component of the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the organization will now extend its reach to address the systemic factors and causes behind the large number of out-of-school children and youth globally.
As part of its future plans, Dubai Cares will increase its focus on funding interventions in areas where governments are unable to provide services, such as Education in Emergencies programs, aimed at supporting the most vulnerable children and young people.
Dubai Cares will also increase funding for research-oriented programs, and establish pilot initiatives that provide meaningful and valuable evidence for governments, policymakers, and civil society, to support them in defining an educational framework for the future.
