We're inviting the UAE community to join us in packing 50,000 school kits for the children of Gaza as part of our "Rebuild Palestine. Start with Education" initiative. This volunteering initiative which is scheduled to take place between the 8th and 11th of January 2015 from 10 am to 6 pm at Al Boom Tourist Village, addresses the shortage in basic educational supplies in Gaza amidst the aftermath of the latest round of violence.
Volunteers will have the opportunity to assist us in assembling school kits that will provide the conflict-affected children the basic educational supplies required for school. The contents of the kit, sourced by Dubai Cares in accordance with UNRWA guidelines, include a backpack, notebooks, sketch books, geometry kit, calculator, pencil case for stationery including pens, pencils, erasers, sharpeners, crayons, rulers etc. The school kits will be given to 50,000 children currently studying in UNRWA schools.
Registration is open to the general public and will take place at the venue.Back to listing
