wasl donates Dhs1 million in school maintenance
wasl Asset Management Group, one of the leading real estate and asset management organisations in Dubai, has reached out to a number of public schools in Dubai to fund maintenance works worth AED 1 million to be completed ahead of the coming school year 2014/2015, as well as give monetary donations.
This move is in line with wasl’s ongoing support for education, the community and country at large. Zainab Mohammed, CEO, Property Management, Marketing and Corporate Communications and Chairwoman of the CSR Committee, wasl properties, said: “This initiative is in line with wasl’s CSR strategy which aims to support all members of the community in which it operates. A special focus on education aspires to build a new generation of thought leaders by building a more conducive environment for education.”
Specialised teams from wasl’s Asset Management Services and Solution (AMSS) department will carry out the maintenance works to be completed before the start of the coming school year 2014/2015 in September. Maintenance works include paint and carpentry work, installing sanitary fixtures, installing and repairing ACs and fitting canopies among other tasks. The initiative will also see wasl giving monetary donations to some schools, which will use the funds to purchase school equipment, supplies, computers and other tools for education.
The schools that will benefit from the charitable act are Sukaina Bint Al Hussain Secondary Girls School, Al Salam Private School, Al Maarif School for Secondary Education, Al Wahda Private School and Zabeel School. A delegation from wasl has visited the schools and met with the management from each school to coordinate the required maintenance works and supplies.
“wasl continues to carry out similar initiatives as part of its CSR strategy to enhance collaboration between the public, private and education sectors in line with government directives aimed at strengthening these relationships, with a particular focus on education,” she added.
