With volunteerism at the heart of the UAE society, Emirates Foundation has been at the forefront of championing volunteering and corporate citizenship activities for over a decade .
This year, Emirates Foundation launched a UAE wide project – Al Dunia B’Khair. Powered by its Takatof program, the Ramadan campaign aims at promoting a culture of volunteerism during the holy month of Ramadan and empowering Emirati Youth to engage in compelling opportunities for community support and development across the nation making a difference in the lives of hundreds of needy people and making the Takatof experience count for all volunteers.
Supported by the foundation’s partners, the campaign aims to engage over 1500 Takatof volunteers from across the UAE with a target of achieving 10,000 volunteer hours. The Takatof volunteers aim to distribute over 100,000 ‘Al Dunia B’Khair’ Ramadan packages to families and communities across the nation.
Since 2007, the Takatof program has organized Ramadan campaigns in an effort to instill a sense of civic engagement and responsibility amongst youth and provide its volunteers the opportunity to support community needs while developing their person-al and leadership skills in the process
