DUBAI / WAM
The UNICEF, and Al Tamimi & Company, have signed a partnership agreement to support UNICEF’s efforts to advance the welfare of children in the United Arab Emirates.
As part of this engagement, Al Tamimi has supported UNICEF’s Gulf Area Office project to build the capacity of social workers in child protection institutions earlier this month.
The project, entitled, “Capacity Development of Social Workers”, focuses on providing social workers with the tools and support necessary to ensure the protection of the children in all aspects. To achieve this, a 3-day training workshop was organised by UNICEF, the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood and General Women Union earlier this month in Abu Dhabi.
“We are thankful to Al Tamimi for their generous and timely support here in the UAE,” said Dr. Ibrahim El-Ziq, UNICEF Gulf Area Representative.”This contribution will help us scale up our efforts to provide support to develop the necessary capacity required to have a lasting difference in children’s lives.”
Essam Al Tamimi, Senior Partner of Al Tamimi & Company, said “It is programmes like this that make a real difference to the world we live in today, and we at Al Tamimi encourage all organisations to contribute and participate in similar projects that will ultimately improve the quality of life of children everywhere.”
