Gems sets aside 4pc seats for educational endowment

DUBAI, March 24, 2016

Gems Education has set aside four per cent of its school seats, as part of its support to the Dubai Awqaf and Endowment vision, through the Mohammed bin Rashid Global Centre for Endowment Consultancy, to meet the Arab world's social needs.
 
It is equivalent to providing educational opportunity for 3,000 students, who are unable to pay fees, through the educational endowment.
 
Honouring its commitment to the community and to inspire other private sector educational providers, Gems Education received the Dubai Awqaf and Endowment Sign from the Mohammed bin Rashid Global Centre for Endowment Consultancy.
 
Sunny Varkey, founder and chairman of Gems Education, said: “We are proud to support the community we serve in, and as a private entity, we look forward to strengthening our partnership in promoting the welfare of the community through various initiatives. 
 
"The announcement of the global Awqaf and Endowment initiative by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, has offered a strong platform for the private sector to support the community effectively.
 
“We have therefore decided to work with the Mohammed bin Rashid Global Centre for Endowment Consultancy and highlight our role in supporting the educational sector through our new endowment. We chose the educational endowment as it is the sector we work in and we are confident of making a positive impact in the community.”
 
Dr Hamad Al Hammadi, secretary general of Mohammed bin Rashid Global Centre for Endowment Consultancy, said: “We are delighted with the prompt response of Gems Education in supporting the initiative by setting aside seats for students. The Dubai Awqaf and Endowment Sign presented to Gems Education from the Centre highlights their effective role in making a difference to the community.”
 
The centre's website will welcome queries from individuals and organisations that are ready to receive the Dubai Awqaf and Endowment Sign. 
 
It will provide consultancy to government and private sector entities in supporting the community through this new initiative. - TradeArabia News Service
