Al Tamimi & Company has worked with many organisations through its pro-bono program and is very proud to announce its partnership with UNICEF which will support a vital program developed to build capacity of social workers in child protection institutions in the Gulf.
The project, titled Capacity development of Social Workers: focuses on increasing the capacity of social workers who work with children in challenging circumstances, based both in and out of social care institutions, in order to ensure the protection of these children in all aspects.
To achieve this, a training workshop organized by UNICEF and Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood took place in February in Abu Dhabi where lecturers from Zayed University, Jordan and Egypt presented a 3-day course to social workers to provide them with the tools and support necessary to assist children.
It is programs like this that make a real difference to the world we live in today, and we at Al Tamimi encourage all organisations to contribute and participate in similar projects that will ultimately improve the quality of life of children everywhere.
