Dubai Cares, Deyaar partner to build a school in Malawi

DUBAI, 7th May, 2019 (WAM) — Dubai Cares and Deyaar Development, a Dubai-based property developer, have partnered to improve children’s access to quality education in Malawi.

The two sides signed an agreement that will see Deyaar work with Dubai Cares to build a community-based school in Malawi, with construction set to start in 2020. Previously, Deyaar had collaborated with Dubai Cares to build schools in Nepal and Senegal.

Saeed Al Qatami, CEO of Deyaar, signed the MoU on behalf of the company. He said, “We may be a UAE company, but we believe that our responsibility to do good and give back extends beyond the borders of our country. Dubai Cares has provided us with several opportunities in recent years to make a real difference in the lives of hundreds of families in communities in need of support, and we are honoured to be able to make a positive impact on a Malawian community through this new project.”

Commenting on the signing, Dubai Cares’ CEO, Tariq Al Gurg, said, “We are excited to once again have Deyaar supporting our Adopt a School initiative. The ability to contribute towards changing children and young people’s lives requires collaborative efforts from across the community, and that is why we value the support of companies in the UAE, with Deyaar being one of the most prominent examples. I am also confident that this opportunity will offer Deyaar’s volunteers a unique insight into our programs in developing countries and the chance to leave a positive and meaningful impact on underprivileged communities.”
