H.E. Dr. Tariq Al Gurg

Chief Executive Officer at Dubai Cares and Member of its Board of Directors 

The world is going through a very difficult time amid the spread of COVID-19 which has disrupted lives, industries and organizations, leaving a devastating impact on education. As part of its global advocacy efforts, Dubai Cares was among the first international organizations to support a global and unified response to the need for distance learning for all children and youth amidst the Covid-19 outbreak. As a member of the Advisory Board for UNESCO’s global Futures of Education initiative, HE Dr. Tariq Al Gurg, Chief Executive Officer at Dubai Cares initiated strong advocacy in support of the formation of the UNESCO’s Global Education Coalition for COVID-19 Response, which aims to help countries find solutions for distance learning in order to minimize educational disruptions caused by this pandemic. Through UNICEF’s Generation Unlimited (a global youth initiative), Dubai Cares is also playing an important role in supporting the global response to this health crisis by providing solutions to remote and digital learning in education, as well as skilling and employment. On the local level, Dubai Cares has launched a nationwide fundraising campaign in partnership with the UAE Ministry of Education to raise awareness about the importance of continuity of education amid the spread of Covid-19 in the UAE that has led the government to close down all schools by providing distance learning as an alternative solution to schooling. The campaign aims to support national and non-national children and youth from low-income families in the UAE by providing them with the necessary ICT tools to continue their distance learning.
