Developer to construct second educational facility for Dubai Cares ‘Adopt a School’ initiative
Property developer Deyaar Development says it has signed an agreement with the philanthropic organisation Dubai Cares to build a primary school in rural Senegal.
Part of the Dubai Cares ‘Adopt a School’ initiative, the school will be constructed in the region of Fatik and will be the second such overseas project Deyaar has supported, the first being a school in western Nepal that opened in February.
“We are very pleased to announce a second partnership with Dubai Cares, and to continue to work with them to improve access to quality education for children around the world. At Deyaar, we are committed to supporting a wide range of CSR activities to make a positive and lasting contribution to society, and to support the UAE government’s goal to help local and international communities in need,” said Saeed Al Qatami, CEO of the Dubai-based Deyaar.
Tariq Al Gurg, CEO of Dubai Cares, said: “We feel privileged that Deyaar Development has renewed its trust in us. Dubai Cares has seen first-hand how education can provide a way out of poverty for people in need, which is why our latest partnership with Deyaar is so crucial to the community in Fatik, Senegal. Together, we will not only bring safe and quality education to 150 local children, but also help to improve adult literacy across the community through a dedicated programme. By improving access to education among children and adults, we are helping the people of Fatik to help pull themselves out of poverty.”
