Headline June 10, 2016/ ''' FOR GLOBAL EDUCATION : *DHIRAM 10 MILLION* IN ONE DAY '''



IN JUST ONE DAY  -after His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE-

And the  greatly loved Ruler of Dubai, made an appeal to raise funds for:
*''Nurturing mind and soul'' of millions of underprivileged children living in 'different parts of the world,  corporate Dubai  made a collective contribution of Dh 10 million before the sun set*.

That's the maximum amount Sheikh Mohammed has set for his innovative charity drive..Reading Nation..-which is aimed at educating children living in refugee camps and other horrible and difficult environments.

While launching the  *Reading Nation Ramadan*   campaign on Sunday, Shaikh Mohammed offered three corporate donation bundles, with a maximum of Dh10 million.

The Dh 10 million collected from businessmen, local entities and organisations on Monday included  
.-Dh 3 million each from etisalat and du; 
.-Dh 1 million each from Kanoo Group and Al Ansari Echange; 
.-Dh 300,000 from the heirs of Obaid Mohammed Al Helou; 
.-Dh 1.9 million through SMS messaging.

The campaign aims to provide  'five million books'  for children in refugee camps and   *underprivileged students*  across the world.

The book donation charity campaign is a continuation of the UAE's annual humanitarian agenda and will continue until the  19th day of Ramadan that coincides with the Zayed Humanitarian Day.

The campaign also triggered a quick response from schools in the UAE, which will host an open week of activities to donate books in cooperation with the Ministry of Education and Dubai Cares.

During this week, students will be encouraged to donate  used books  to support the effort of the campaign in providing knowledge to refugees and to establish more than  2,000  school libraries   around the world.

Dubai cares will provide more than  500 schools across the UAE with boxes to collect the donated books and deliver them to the International Humanitarian City.

Hussain bun Ibrahim Al Hammadi, minister of education, said the  Reading Nation Campaign will reinforce a culture of giving among the students and their actions will send out an emphatic message to their peers in areas that face shortages of resources due to bleak circumstances.

A follow up team has been assigned to coordinate with all educational zones and with Dubai Cares to ensure that all requirements are put in place for a highly successful campaign.

Al Hammadi said the  Reading Nation Campaign is a new and huge step that has added to the  UAE's stellar record in the in the field of *humanitarian work across the world*.

Tariq Al Gurg, CEO, Dubai Cares, said : 
''The Reading Nation campaign is aligned with the plans and directions of the  *Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives to execute more than  1,400  human development programmes in over 116 countries around the world*.

''This campaign is unique as it allows children to participate and encourages them to think of other less fortunate children and also convey messages of *Hope and Optimism*. 

We are confident that the students from UAE schools will actively participate in the campaign in a manner that reflects the positive values of our society.''

Given the fact that more than  10,000  schools in the  Arab world  do not have school libraries and millions of refugees children do not have access to adequate education or books-

The campaign aims to provide  *five million children*  in refugee camps and underprivileged  schools across the world.

To their lasting honour over 500  UAE schools, corporates took part in Reading Nation Ramadan charity drive.  

With most respectful dedication to His Highness Sheikh Mohammed`bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

Your Highness, a great honour for !WOW! -the World Students Society,to inform the students the world over.
