The Takatof Programme is organizing a series of events and activities dedicated to the Northern Emirates as part of spirit of happiness surrounding this significant occasion for the UAE.
On this occasion, Mrs. Maytha Al Habsi, Director of Takatof, commented, “Our decision of expanding our branches to the Northern Emirates comes in line with the directives of HH Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Chairman of Emirates Foundation, which enables us to instill a culture of volunteerism among the UAE community. We aim to intensify our services among Emirates to celebrate the 40th National Day with them, a precious day that marks our interdependence and unity.”
Mrs. Al Habsi added, “We are pleased to see overwhelming response in terms of participation in our voluntary work among various segments of the society, making it necessary for us to open other permanent branches in Emirates of the UAE. The expansion will make us more accessible to people who are interested in doing voluntary work, which supports the strategies adopted by the program while highlighting the importance of the culture of volunteerism and utilizing the efforts and expertise of volunteers within the Emirati community.”
As part of various events organized by Takatof, and in line with the invitation of HH Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, to raise the UAE flag on all houses, Takatof is launching a UAE flag campaign, which includes distributing the UAE flag to all members of the community and spreading the awareness on the importance of respecting the flag as it resembles our pride, honor and glory.
The Takatof programme is inspired by HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces. Takatof is a voluntary social programme designed to create a culture of volunteering throughout the UAE. The programme mobilizes people and resources across the nation to find creative and sustainable solutions for proven community needs. Takatof particularly offers young people meaningful opportunities to volunteer for humanitarian, social and community programmes.
