In the context of "Our Ambassadors" initiative which has been recently launched by the Ministry of Education (MOE), 28 students participating in the Ambassadors of Giving Program conducted their humanitarian missions upon their arrival at the Republic of Mauritius. They had induction and training programs to be familiarized with the living conditions and culture of the people of the Country. In the framework of this program, another delegation will travel to Zanzibar to carry out a range of humanitarian missions based on the agenda of the program.
The Ambassadors of Giving program is a part of Our Ambassadors initiative which was developed by the MOE to embody a humanitarian approach that has recently become a key feature of the Emirati community with its various categories. This approach has been promoted by the wise leadership and supported by pioneering initiatives, the most important of which is "Year of Goodness" where students will organize charitable and humanitarian activities and will assist the people and children of determination.
The program includes 50 students divided into two groups, one headed to Mauritius and the other will travel to Zanzibar after coordinating with international organizations competent in humanitarian work and providing assistance to the needy. Students participating will learn about the best international practices in the fields of voluntary, humanitarian and charity activities through engaging in the social service programs which include participation in building schools, visiting international children's villages, cultural exchange and assistance in the humanitarian efforts in the region.
The Ambassadors of Giving Program is centered on the provision of students with high human values and the dedication of such values to increase their awareness of the importance of group volunteering to alleviate the suffering of the people and contribute to the global efforts of raising the living standards in some countries of the world which suffer from poverty, marginalization and spread of diseases.
Upon its arrival at Mauritius, the Ambassadors of Giving delegation attended a series of briefing gatherings that were held by the University of Mauritius. The gatherings discussed various topics concerning economy and living standard and introduced the most important social services provided by the government to the various categories of society.
The delegation also visited the SOS Children's Villages in Mauritius concerned with the protection of children and caring for orphans around the world. In their first experience, students played with the needy children, decorated the World Organization building, painted the building playground walls and organized sessions for exchanging knowledge with children.
As for the tasks of the second batch of our students sent to Zanzibar, students will contribute to the construction and renovation of schools and will work within a group of teams that will work together to complete and build a school for children. Our children will implement a range of educational projects for children. A series of workshops will be held for achieving the efficiency of work within team members.
