Dubai Future Foundation (DFF) participated in the “DYOD: Donate Your Own Device” campaign, which was organised by The Digital School, an initiative of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives, in collaboration with the Emirates Red Crescent (ERC). The campaign aims to collect 10,000 used electronic devices from individual and institutional donors, to then be refurbished and used as learning tools.
Azzah Al Sharhan, Chief of Corporate Affairs at DFF, said: “Our participation in this initiative is in line with our commitment to supporting national and global initiatives aimed at enabling a better future for societies. We believe in the importance of enhancing cooperation among all stakeholders when it comes to empowering future generations around the world.
“DFF participated in the Donate Your Own Device campaign to support the efforts of The Digital School. These efforts are aligned with the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to accelerate the development of digital education and make it accessible to everyone, everywhere.”
