Mr. Mohammed Al Shehhi, official spokesperson for the event, spoke about the importance of
education. He said "What we believe is what our leaders believe. His Highness Sheikh Mohammed
is our leader and believes education is the best tool to end poverty. Whenever you educate a
generation, you're educating an entire country."

Al Shehhi also spoke about all of Dubai Cares' work in its history of 10 years and how they have a
big role this year, since it's the 'year of giving.' He said 'We're responsible for providing children and
developing countries with access to education, so we provide books, infrastructure and food as well.
"We have reached to over 45 countries in the last 10 years and we make programs in line with
government strategies, providing school material alongside infrastructure."

'Walk For Education' is one of Dubai Cares' annual initiatives and includes family oriented
activities for families and children. For more information, go to
