The Al Qasimi Foundation’s Hands on Learning (HOL) pilot program seeks to re-engage male students at risk of dropping out or disengaging from school. Adapted from an Australian initiative, the program creates a safe space for students to build positive relationships with teachers and peers and discover how much they capable of doing. Students participate in special projects outside their normal classrooms one day each week. During the 2016-17 academic year, the program saw a 70% improvement in student attendance as well as substantial gains in students’ life skills including collaboration, leadership, problem solving, resilience, communication, and empathy.
