Dubai Cares held the third edition of “Volunteer Emirates 2014”, which was sponsored by Al Tayer Group, on Saturday November 1, 2014 from 8 AM – 2 PM at National Charity School in Dubai.

The second edition of Dubai Cares’ Volunteer Emirates 2014 was sponsored by DEWA, brought together individuals, academia as well as corporate volunteers in an effort to complete an array of maintenance activities - from painting murals to assembling school furniture - that play an integral role in creating the ideal learning environment for students. Over 130 volunteers joined Dubai Cares and DEWA staff for the second edition of the initiative at the Gulf Model School in Dubai to give the 32-year old school premises an uplift. As part of this edition of Volunteer Emirates, participants refurbished and enhanced the school premises; repairing furniture, painting doors, procuring and organizing playground toys, painting murals in the school hallways, assembling 30 computers and a projector, equipping the library with educational books as well as landscaping the premises with plants donated by Dubai Desert Group. In addition, the team also prepared the Chemistry lab with scientific equipment and painted murals in the multi-function room.

The first edition of Volunteer Emirates took place on Saturday May 17, 2014 where Dubai Cares along with 100 volunteers upgraded the premises and enhanced the learning environment of Al Bustan School, the Ras Al Khaimah-based boys-only school. Over the course of 8 hours, the volunteers undertook a number of refurbishment activities including drawing murals on the walls of the teachers' lounge, science lab, computer lab and outside the classrooms, as well as landscaping the premises and installing playground toys.
