Abu Dhabi: The Emirates College for Advanced Education (ECAE) and the Mohammed bin Rashid Centre for Special Education have participated in the “Ramadan MA’AN” campaign under the slogan “Following Zayed’s Steps.”.
The campaign was organised by the Bi aldima narweek ya watan volunteer team, supported by Ma’an Centres Authority and Abu Dhabi Majlis, in partnership with Abu Dhabi Police, the Department of Community Development, Agthia Group, and Rabdan Academy.
The participation in this campaign coincides with the activities of Autism Month, and it is aimed to support the Abu Dhabi Strategy for People of Determination 2020-2024 while involving students with autism in preparing iftar boxes, which will be distributed at traffic lights during Ramadan in Khalifa City, Abu Dhabi.
“At ECAE, we are pleased to be partners in this campaign that has such noble objectives during the holy month of Ramadan, where we follow the approach of our father Zayed, following his steps for a country that affirms the importance of social responsibility, enhances the spirit of work and cooperation, and consolidates it as a clear way of life in a country that believes in the role of social responsibility in the sustainability of society’s development and prosperity,” Mr. Al Taee added.
As part of the initiative, Iftar boxes were prepared at the ECAE campus in Abu Dhabi by students with autism who were invited by the college to participate in this campaign, with the participation of ECAE management, staff, and faculty, as well as MRC-NECC students, supervisors, and volunteer team members.
