Office of Community Engagement annual participation and support for the “Walk for Education” is beyond appreciation. There were 23 participants from AU who joined the walk which started at 9 am and finished by 10 am. AU students and employees enjoyed their time. This initiative which was on Friday February 14, 2020 welcomed thousands from the UAE community who walked 3 kilometers in solidarity with millions of children who must cover the same distance every day simply to go to school.
There was a family-focused event that attracted individuals from different ages and nationalities who enjoyed the family-friendly and fun-filled activities that included roaming performers, live music, sports and food stalls.
Ms. Noor Al Chaghouri, Head of Community Service at Ajman University said, “as part of our core values for Ajman University and social responsibility, it is our role to support such walk for education events, to give our students and community a chance to give back our society by donating money, time and efforts. Such wonderful initiatives engage students and society by giving them a chance to meet for a good cause and make new friends from different cultures, ages, religion and race to support for education which is a basic right for every child. As the slogan implies your walk would make a difference”.
Tasnim Marwan, a Biomedical Engineering, second year student said, “It is one of the best events that I have joined. It is really a great feeling when you are helping and supporting people and at the same time you are enjoying your day.”
