    Dubai Awqaf opens three classrooms for students

    Endowments and Minors’ Trust Foundation in Dubai (Awqaf Dubai), donated Dh500,000 to the Dubai Autism Center (DAC) to inaugurate three new classrooms for its advanced educational program.

    The program aims to care for 18 students with autism and provide guidance and training for their families, individuals, and community institutions. The initiative is part of Awqaf’s strategy to empower people of determination and support their social integration, in line with Dubai’s vision to become a friendly and inspiring city for them.


    Ali Al Mutawa, the Secretary-General of Awqaf, said that the foundation’s contribution to support the DAC is in line with its commitment to aligning its strategy with Dubai’s direction to become a friendly-city and inspiring for people with autism, aiming to provide the necessary support, raise awareness in society about their needs, and ultimately achieve social integration sought by the Emirate of Dubai. He added that people of determination are a vital part of the social fabric and deserve the necessary support from society.


    “We spare no effort to continue empowering people of determination through the Social Affairs Bank, which provides necessary support to institutions and care centers for them,” Al Mutawa emphasized.


    Mohammed Al Emadi, the Director-General and board member of DAC, thanked Awqaf a

    for its continuous support, and praised the foundation’s policy and its contribution to opening the three classrooms, which are designed according to global standards.


    He stressed the importance of community support in overcoming the challenges faced by individuals with autism and their families and said that DAC, which was established in 2001 as the first non-profit Emirati institution providing comprehensive consulting, educational, and therapeutic services in the field of autism spectrum disorders, aims to make Dubai a leading global center in providing dedicated special education and therapeutic services for people with autism.
