Every year, Dubai's community comes together to walk in solidarity for children's education

Since it's inception in 2007 by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, Dubai Cares has worked endlessly to raise awareness and provide children and young people in developing countries with access to quality education.
After all, education is more than a human right.
It is an irrevocable asset, as the team behind Dubai Cares firmly believe. It is also one of the most effective tools to break the cycle of poverty.
For over a decade, Dubai Cares has been working towards giving access to education for children and young people in third-world countries, through the design and funding of programs that aim to be integrated, impactful, sustainable and scalable.
As a result, the UAE-based global philanthropic organisation has successfully launched education programs reaching over 16 million beneficiaries in over 45 developing countries.
Now, you can be part of this mission and help break the cycle of poverty.
On Friday 16th February, 2018, the Dubai Cares Walk for Education will march through Dubai Creek Park in support of children's education. Dubai's community are invited to attend and join in.
Join in with your family, friends and colleagues and walk in solidarity with millions of children in developing countries, who walk long distances every day to go to school.
Last year, over 14,500 people joined in the 2017 edition of the Dubai Cares Walk for Education, and as a result - the charity were able to raise vital funds to raise awareness for this cause.
