Dubai Cares, a UAE based charitable establishment, was launched on September 19, 2007 by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Prime Minister and Vice-President and Ruler of Dubai. Inspired by His Highness' belief that education is the most effective tool to break the cycle of poverty, Dubai Cares aims to improve children's access to primary education in developing countries. Through the introduction of philanthropic initiatives and promotion of social entrepreneurship, Dubai Cares works to mobilize Dubai's multicultural community to contribute to sustainable growth and development around the world.
Dubai Cares' educational focus goes beyond the delivery of the basic needs of school supplies and facilities; it seeks to deliver needs-based development packages which include assistance in the areas of health, nutrition, teacher training and life-skills. Now considered to be the largest NGO dedicated to primary education globally, Dubai Cares is a fully transparent charitable establishment that is run based on international best practices for international NGOs.
Dubai Cares has prioritized its phase one grants to countries that demonstrate the highest gap in primary education. In early 2007, Dubai Cares announced 12 beneficiary countries including Bangladesh, Bosnia, Chad, Comoros Islands, Djibouti, Maldives, Mauritania, Niger, Pakistan, Occupied Palestinian Territories, Sudan and Yemen, as well as Palestinian refugees (in Lebanon and Jordan).
The charitable organization has positioned itself as a strategic coordinator actively engaged with international aid agencies to develop primary education programs addressing the full value chain of education and to ensure immediate impact on the ground. Dubai Cares has active partnerships with Save the Children, UNICEF, Medecins Sans Frontieres, OXFAM and Care International, helping millions of children break free from the trap of poverty by providing them the means to overcome obstacles and become positive contributors to their national development.
