Over 15,000 people of all different ages and nationalities walked 4,000 steps this weekend for a great cause…
Occurring annual, the Walk for Education organised by Dubai Cares, is an initiative created as part of the Mohammed bin Rashid Global Initiatives – and this year saw its 10th anniversary.
Thousands of residents – including Fakih IVF Dubai’s very own team – joined together in walking 3km in solidarity with millions of children in developing countries who walk long distances ever day to go to school.
On February 15, Fakih IVF Dubai joined Dubai Cares in helping to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal, which aims to ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning.
About Dubai Cares’ Walk for Education
Since 2009, the initiative has invited residents to walk a total of 287 million steps in solidarity with children who embark on a long and treacherous journey to school every single day.
This year, for its 10th anniversary, the aim was to send a loud and clear message to the world about the importance of providing children and youth safe access to school.
Not only was there a walk, but there was a fun-filled and family-friendly lineup of activities that awaited participants after completing the 3k journey, including; face painting, hair braiding, carnival games, music and traditional dance plus hula hoop, bouncy castles and arts and crafts stations.
