DUBAI: The Community Development Authority in Dubai (CDA) in a media round-table unveiled the details of the  volunteering and community service associated with the education policy adopted recently by Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council of Dubai.

CDA has developed the policy based on the need for an integrated regulatory framework for volunteering and the necessity to raise awareness of the volunteering culture among individuals and joint working groups.

The implementation of the policy will have a direct impact on Dubai’s community and will help ensuring social development sustainability and social cohesion.

CDA said that the policy has come into force, communication with the concerned authorities has started to discuss the suggested application paths. CDA will be responsible for follow-up and submit regular reports about the policy implantation stages.

Ahmad Abdul Kareem Julfar, Director General of CDA, talking to the media said that having an adopted methodology to improve volunteering and regulating it helps boost the productivity of several national sectors, increases the chances of positively utilising the community members’ efforts and mitigating the financial burden on the government.  The percentage of the volunteering work in any society is an indicator of how this society is able to respond to economic and social changes smoothly.

“After adopting the Volunteering Policy Proposal that CDA prepared, the Social Development Committee of the Executive Council of Dubai has assigned CDA to draft a law to regulate volunteering in collaboration with the involved authorities. This will constitute an integrated and unified framework for regulating and promoting volunteering in the Emirate to serve the social and economic needs. We will follow up on the policy implementation as per timelines and will submit regular reports about it to the Committee,” he said.
