About Us

Education is more than a human right, it is an irrevocable asset. It is also one of the most effective tools to break the cycle of poverty, a belief held by our founder His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. It was from this belief and the desire to give children - regardless of their gender, nationality, race or religion - the opportunity to become positive contributors to society, that His Highness established Dubai Cares on September 19, 2007. Since its inception, Dubai Cares, part of Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives, has been working towards providing children and young people in developing countries with access to quality education through the design and funding of programs that aim to be integrated, impactful, sustainable and scalable. As a result, the UAE-based global philanthropic organization has successfully launched education programs.

Our Mission

We believe education is an irrevocable asset and an essential right of every child. We uphold this belief by delivering integrated evidence based quality education programs through strategic partnerships  to create sustainable impact in the lives of underprivileged children globally. With the support of the local and global community, we promise to make this happen. 

Our Vision

To break the cycle of poverty by ensuring all children have access to quality education.
