Dubai Cares is currently running a 1-month community awareness and fundraising campaign, known as #LastILearned, in support of raising funds and building awareness around the plight of children affected by conflict and natural disasters.
Education is a fundamental right of every child, yet in times of conflict and disaster access to education gets disrupted and in many cases results in lost generations of children and youth. Dubai Cares’ #LastILearned campaign takes away the numbers and tells the real stories of the children affected by emergencies such as the story of 15-year-old Nadia who has not been receiving an education since the beginning of the Syrian conflict and who shares the last thing she learned in school.
Today one in 113 people are either a refugee, internally displaced, or seeking asylum, and more than half of the world’s refugees are children. The problems faced by children and adolescents impacted by conflict and natural disasters cannot be ignored, and we at Dubai Cares intend to do everything we can to help them. We are committed to providing children affected by emergencies the education they need to give them hope, make them more resilient and help them achieve their full potential.
The UAE community, both individuals and corporates are invited to get involved in the campaign by:
