Developer will build a school for 150 students in the Himalayan country as part of its CSR strategy
Deyaar Development has started construction of a school in Nepal, in a project it has undertaken as part of the Dubai Cares Adopt a School initiative.
Under its CSR strategy, the developer has teamed up with Dubai Cares in the aftermath of the earthquake that hit the Himalayan country earlier this year.
As per an agreement signed between Saeed Al Qatami, CEO of Deyaar Development, and Tariq Al Gurg, chief executive at Dubai Cares, Deyaar will build the school in the western region of Nepal and equip it with furniture and educational resources. About 150 students will benefit from the project, Deyaar said in a statement.
The developer, which behind the Midtown project in IMPZ, has assigned a team of employees to volunteer their time supporting the school’s construction. Once complete, the new school will also offer adult literacy programmes to 60 women.
“We are honoured and delighted to be a part of Dubai Cares’ ‘Adopt a School’ initiative that will benefit generations to come,” said Mona Al Tamimi, Vice President, Marketing & Corporate Communications at Deyaar.
“It has been an enriching cultural experience for our team to participate in laying the foundation of the school. We are truly humbled by the warm welcome and heartfelt appreciation we have already received for our efforts in building an educational institution in the village.”
