The Hussain Sajwani – DAMAC Foundation aims to empower people across the Arab world through its support to the ‘One Million Arab Coders’ initiative, an education program that will have tremendous social impact on society, by empowering one million Arabs with the skills and technical expertise needed for the jobs of the future.
Why Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)?
As a home-grown company, we feel it is important to give back to the community in which we operate, one that has given us so much. The foundation is keen to unlock the full potential of the region’s skills through education and hard work. This is the path the Chairman followed and the path he has put his children on. Contributing to a sustainable future for generations to come, he aims to empower the wider community within the Arab region.
DAMAC and Hussain Sajwani in particular, have always contributed to philanthropic activities over the years, supporting a range of organizations such as the Emirates Red Crescent, Dubai Cares and Dar Al Ber Society. Philanthropy is a core principle entrenched in the value system of the Sajwani family and their beliefs. Through this initiative, Hussain Sajwani and DAMAC are formalizing their efforts in support of His Highness’ vision for a better future.
