End Poverty. Educate Now.

End Poverty. Educate Now.
Half the children around the world are born poor and will likely remain in poverty, just like their parents, their own children and generations to come. Join us in changing their destiny. End Poverty. Educate Now.
End Poverty. Educate Now.

Out of the 2.2 billion children around the world, 1 billion live in poverty.

According to UNESCO, education is the best possible investment against exclusion, inequalities and poverty. One extra year of schooling increases an individual’s earnings by up to 10%. Studies have also shown that better educated people have a greater probability of being employed and are economically more productive.

In a move to address these daunting figures, Dubai Cares launched its “End Poverty. Educate Now.” campaign, which runs throughout the Holy Month of Ramadan to spread awareness of the importance of education, as one of the most effective tools to break the cycle of poverty. The campaign will also be raising funds across different fundraising channels in support of providing children in developing countries access to quality primary education.

How can you help?

With every donation made to the “End Poverty. Educate Now.” campaign, you can help provide children in developing countries with the opportunity to receive quality primary education. No matter how big or small your donation is, you can make a huge difference in a child’s life.

 You can support our campaign by:

  1. Adding AED 5 or more to their purchase at participating retailers in The Dubai Mall

“Education makes the difference” stand at The Dubai Mall.

Join us at the Star Atrium in The Dubai Mall and help us in making a difference in the lives of children around the world. The interactive stand, which will run throughout the first 20 days of Ramadan, will start with black and white posters on tiles showing children living in poverty, which will gradually transform into a colored image representative of children receiving an education. The change will take place every time a donation is made or someone registers to support the campaign. This symbolic activity will help convey the impact and difference that every dirham donated can make on a child's life. Visitors to the stand will also be able to get their picture taken at a photo booth and keep it as a souvenir.
