Dubai Cares is inviting the residents of the United Arab Emirates to participate in the launch of Volunteer Globally, a pilot program which offers an opportunity to help construct 3 schools, install water and sanitation systems and build furniture for 777 children of primary school age in Cambodia. Dubai Cares partnered with PEPY an NGO in Cambodia to facilitate this pilot program in Chanleas Dai commune, an area in the Kralanh District of rural Siem Reap Province. The program helped construct/renovate 3 school buildings, including desks and classroom equipment for all classrooms, and toilets wherever necessary. As part of the program, Dubai Cares also provided optional additions for each school such as classroom mobile libraries, rainwater collection facilities and school material for students. The specific construction duties included activities such as mixing cement, hauling bricks, plastering and painting.
