Dubai, 2 April 2023: Coinciding with the “Year of Sustainability”, Al Manal Humanitarian Initiative, launched by Her Highness Sheikha Manal bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, President of UAE Gender Balance Council (UAE GBC) and President of Dubai Women Establishment (DWE), wife of His Highness Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Vice President, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Presidential Court in 2013, this year marks ten years of continued philanthropic and humanitarian projects and campaigns by Al Manal Humanitarian Initiative. 2023 showcases the UAE’s sustainable approach in addressing the issue of climate change, which is one of the world’s most critical challenges at present, which requires united efforts of all countries to overcome for a healthy and safe life for future generations.
Al Manal Humanitarian Initiative campaign is being implemented this year in partnership with Dubai Cares, part of Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI), to support the integration of education into the global climate agenda, through transformed education systems that can drive progress for human development towards a prosperous and sustainable future for all, thereby consolidating the UAE’s position as a global beacon for development work and reinforcing its commitment to the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
Her Excellency Mona Al Marri, Chairperson of the Board of Directors and Managing Director of Dubai Women Establishment, said that “Al Manal Humanitarian Initiative” supports Dubai Cares’ efforts in highlighting and emphasising the importance of integrating climate change awareness into the educational system as a vital tool to raise awareness of the adverse effects of climate change that are threatening our planet.
She stressed that these joint efforts contribute towards strengthening the global position of the UAE and emphasising its active participation in tackling worldwide challenges – especially in combating the issue of climate change because it is linked to many other issues such as health, water, education, development, economy and gender balance, all of which constitute the pillars of the sustainable development goals.
She added that over the past ten years, Al Manal Humanitarian Initiative has launched, and implemented numerous charitable projects and campaigns targeting various segments of society and causes, with a focus on education, health and water safety which translate the humanitarian vision of Her Highness Sheikha Manal bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. She added that her Highness is keen that these programs have a sustainable, significant and tangible impact in the lives of the beneficiaries, especially women and girls, as it significantly contributes to any country’s social, economic and political development process.
Her Excellency Mona Al-Marri said that the partnership between Al Manal Humanitarian Initiative and Dubai Cares confirms the global development approach of the UAE, referring to the two entities’ prior areas of collaboration, including the support of Al Manal Humanitarian Initiative for the “Bookings 2030” campaign launched by Dubai Cares in 2019 to provide educational opportunities for children and youth in need and help them achieve their professional aspirations in the future. Both parties also cooperated in implementing the ‘teacHER’ campaign launched by the Al Manal Humanitarian Initiative in 2017 and 2018 to increase children’s access to quality education, especially supporting girls’ education globally.
Climate action leaders
Commenting on the significance of the collaboration, His Excellency Dr. Tariq Al Gurg, Chief Executive Officer and Vice-Chairman of Dubai Cares, said: “Climate change is an ever-growing global crisis that affects women and girls disproportionately and amplifies the learning inequalities facing them in many parts of the world. Through the integration of education into the global climate agenda, we can catalyze transformative change that will not only reduce the ill effects of climate change on women and girls, but also empower them to become climate action leaders. As our long-standing partner, Al Manal Humanitarian Initiative has contributed significantly to our global efforts in improving the lives of children and youth, particularly girls, through access to quality education. Now, as Dubai Cares gears up for COP28 as its exclusive Education Partner, we are thankful to Al Manal Humanitarian Initiative for hosting the “Designs of Hope” exhibition, to help us promote climate change education for women and girls and position education as a crucial opportunity for them to play a bigger role in driving climate change solutions.”
Designs of Hope
The Dubai Ladies Club will host the eighth edition of the “Designs of Hope” charity exhibition organized by Al Manal Humanitarian Initiative from 5 to 7 April 2023, with the participation of various Emirati designers, jewellers and fashion designers.

A history of charitable and philanthropic work
Since its launch in 2013, Al Manal Humanitarian Initiative has implemented many campaigns and programmes in various fields, such as health, education, food, and support for female workers.

During the COVID-19 crisis in 2020, Al Manal Humanitarian Initiative launched ‘ReacHer’, an initiative providing women with mental health support and consultation services, which aimed to support women across their familial, social, and economic roles amid the implications and repercussions of the pandemic.
