Notable humanitarian achievements have been made to alleviate the suffering of children in Zanzibar, thanks to the efforts devoted by the students participating in the "Ambassadors of Giving" program as part of the "Our Ambassadors" Initiative, launched by the UAE Ministry of Education (MOE). Students built classrooms and a children’s hospital to help improve the quality of life, and services provided towards a bright, hopeful and optimistic future.
The Ambassadors of Giving Program is an embodiment of the noble human values maintained by people of the UAE, and a real reflection of the wise leadership guidance on considering the ethical and humanitarian values of students. The MOE also seeks to develop practical programs that revive the concept of volunteering. Furthermore, MOE points out the importance of giving, it being a high humanitarian value which maintains societies and contribute to alleviate people suffering. These goals can be realized through the actual contribution to ease suffering and improve adverse circumstances. Such efforts contribute to building academic and humanitarian balanced students.
The contributions of our students to the Ambassadors of Giving Program have been a shining part of their humanitarian journey to make difference in the lives of children of Zanzibar, many of whom are suffering from disease, poverty and hunger. Eyal Zayed’s (Zayed's Sons) high spirits have helped to ease agonizing pains and relieve the burdens of the children of Zanzibar over the years.
During their journey around Zanzibar, our 24 students led pioneering humanitarian missions scheduled and coordinated with international humanitarian organizations. As they set foot in Zanzibar, the students started visiting the poorest and most needy regions. Thus, their cooperation resulted in building classrooms in one of Zanzibar regions and starting the construction of a hospital that serves children and people of Zanzibar.
Our students’ mission included visiting an epilepsy treatment center for children. The students, along with the center staff, contributed to providing the children with a comfortable social environment that understands their needs through raising the parents’ awareness of the nature of this disease, and the mental status of injured children depending on a series of awareness meetings with the relevant parties.
