A local volunteer initiative supporting children’s education in the UAE and beyond
Volunteer Emirates is a local volunteering initiative that rallies the UAE community throughout the year to donate their time in support of the educational cause. The initiative has different editions such as:
- Enhancing the learning environment of a UAE-based non-profit school by installing desks and chairs for students and teachers; mounting bookshelves and equipping libraries; installing whiteboards, projectors and air conditioners; installing playground toys as well as sports and musical equipment; drawing murals across the school corridors; installing shade umbrellas to protect students from the hot weather; among others.
- Participating in a “Back to School” edition where members of the community help with the assembly of school kits that are later distributed to children in need both locally and globally.
- Supporting children of determination by providing support at the dedicated centers.
- Delivering summer camps for orphans and children from low-income families to help enhance their learning capabilities.
