DUBAI: In line with its Global CSR policy, Lulu Group has teamed up with Dubai Cares to adopt schools in Gaza and Nepal. The project aims to improve the infrastructure of primary school classrooms and provide safe and sanitary areas for children to learn and for teachers to teach. It also aims to improve the access to adult education and literacy skills by providing training to local facilitators to teach illiterate women the fundamentals of reading and writing.

Speaking about the project, Salim MA, Director of Lulu Group said, “We have always believed in playing our role as a responsible organiSation with strong CSR motives. We are delighted to join hands with Dubai Cares, which is in the forefront of world philanthropies.”

Tariq Al Gurg, CEO, Dubai Cares said: “I would like to thank Lulu Group for their commitment to our cause. The support of the UAE community has been an integral part of our success in providing children in developing countries with access to quality primary education. I am confident that both of these adopted schools will have a significant impact and cater to the improvement of literacy standards in Gaza and Nepal. We encourage more organisations in the UAE to follow suit and dedicate their CSR efforts to similar philanthropic causes.”

In Gaza, the programme will focus on Early Childhood Development (ECD). ECD is defined as programmes and services for parents and children from conception to eight years of age in the field of education, health, nutrition, protection, and sanitation. Dubai Cares will be involved in upgrading and equipping year 1 pre-schools with all necessary infrastructure in addition to helping in literacy and teacher training for children in the age group of 1-2 years.
