Dubai Cares Is Funding AED 73.4 Million In Order To Educate Children In Need


In order to ensure the prevention of a lost generation, Dubai Cares has committed to support educating children who have been caught in conflict and emergencies zones with ‘programmes that work’. 

The global initiative, which was founded by Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, will put AED 73.4 million towards Education in Emergencies. This funding will help cover programmes in Lebanon, Niger and Sierra Leone.

The new programmes are all part of the ‘Education in Emergencies’ Evidence for Action. They bring together Dubai Cares, the International Rescue Committee and the Global Ties for Childern/New York University in a three-year initiative. The primary objective is to introduce targeted and evidence-based interventions to help those in need.

“The most neglected, the most marginalised, the most individuals who are not getting their privilege into any crisis in the world are children. They are not getting their education. And we don’t need any lost generation happening in this world. The opportunity costs of these years lost due to conflict and natural disasters is exceedingly high and we need to do everything we can to prevent it,” 

Tareq Al Gurg, Dubai Cares CEO
