The “Donate Your Own Device” campaign, a collaborative effort between The Digital School and Emirates Red Crescent (ERC), has been unveiled with the ambitious objective of collecting 10,000 used electronic devices from both individuals and institutions.
Initiated under the auspices of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives, the campaign seeks to refurbish and recycle the collected devices, ultimately supporting disadvantaged students worldwide by enhancing their access to education through digital means.
Aligned with the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister, and Ruler of Dubai, who emphasizes the importance of digital education applications and solutions for the future of the education sector, the campaign embodies a profound commitment to educational, humanitarian, and environmental advancement.
The “Donate Your Own Device” campaign signifies a crucial stride in advancing digital learning opportunities for underprivileged students. By engaging private sector entities, the initiative mirrors Dubai Chamber of Commerce’s dedication to strengthening the business environment in the emirate.
Through the generous contributions of donors who share the vision of empowering students of The Digital School, the campaign aims to provide access to education, particularly for those who face challenges in obtaining electronic devices.
This significant humanitarian endeavor resonates with the visions of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid and the objectives of The Digital School, reflecting a collective effort to bridge educational gaps and support those in need.
Participants in the campaign discussions underscored the importance of employing smart data capture methods to enhance transaction accuracy and reduce human errors. The concept of issuing notary public-certified documents in multiple languages was explored, enhancing trust and global investment competitiveness.
The campaign demonstrates a harmonious blend of humanitarian and technological initiatives, exemplifying various entities’ social responsibility commitment and dedication to cultivating a more united and sustainable society.
The Digital School extends a heartfelt invitation to individuals and organizations to participate in this noble initiative. Donations, whether in the form of used electronic devices or financial contributions, can be channeled through official donation platforms, including the ERC partnership.
Omar Sultan Al Olama, Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence, Digital Economy, and Remote Work Applications, emphasized that the campaign mirrors the UAE’s ethos of fostering human values and generosity, creating exceptional opportunities for collaboration among individuals, institutions, and the private sector.
In an era marked by transformative digital progress, this initiative, a beacon of humanitarianism and sustainable solutions, bolsters the UAE’s commitment to education, societal well-being, and environmental stewardship.
