In order to identify program opportunities, Dubai Cares assesses the needs of local communities and designs interventions that generate immediate and long-term impact in the lives of children and their communities. Dubai Cares works through an implementing partnership model with UN agencies, multi-lateral international and national non-governmental organizations.
Our mission to increase children’s access to quality primary education is realized through integrated programs that eliminate the underlying obstacles that prevent children from going to school and learning. This is achieved through building and renovating schools and classrooms, improving water, sanitation and hygiene in schools, providing school feeding, deworming activities, early childhood education, as well as teacher training, curriculum development, literacy and numeracy.
Gender equality is a cross cutting theme in all Dubai Cares’ education programs with an approach that aims to secure equal access for boys and girls to safe learning environments with adequate facilities, materials and academic support from qualified teachers and engaged communities.
Moreover, central to Dubai Cares’ approach is a focus on monitoring, evaluation and learning. Through the design and support of catalytic and innovative programs, Dubai Cares seeks to test alternative models and hypothesis that can increase the impact of interventions and contribute to the global body of evidence-based best practices.
