About the program/Scholarship:
The Dubai Cares Foundation offers grants for basic education projects in developing countries to help them achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG), which aims to ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning by 2030, by supporting programs in early childhood development, access to quality primary and secondary education, technical and vocational education and training for youth as well as a particular focus on education in emergencies and protracted crises.
About the Program:
Dubai Cares also funds research-oriented programs and establishes pilot initiatives that provide meaningful and valuable evidence for governments, policymakers, and civil society, to support them in defining an educational framework for the future. Dubai Cares’ fundings are not awarded on a case-by-case basis. Rather, to be considered for funding, proposals should be consistent with Dubai Cares annual programming and approved the list of intervention countries. While proposals are assessed throughout the year, only during the last quarter are the new programs for the upcoming year finalized and approved.
About Dubai Cares:
Dubai Cares was founded by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai on September 19, 2007, out of his belief and the desire to give children – regardless of their gender, nationality, race or religion – the opportunity to become positive contributors to society. Since its inception, Dubai Cares has been working towards providing children and young people in developing countries with access to quality education through the design and funding of programs that aim to be integrated, impactful, sustainable and scalable. As a result, the UAE-based global philanthropic organization has successfully launched education programs reaching over 18 million beneficiaries in 57 developing countries.
