Dubai Cares is the UAE-based global philanthropic organization working to impart free primary education to children around the world. They are organizing an education walking campaign event on the 14th of February at Dubai Creek Park, welcoming all UAE residents to participate. It'll be a three-kilometers walking campaign with the idea of “Walk for Education.”

The aim is to spread a message globally about the children's education rights in developing countries. Dubai Cares also raises funds to provide free child education globally, and this is one of its initiatives. It'll be a three kilometers solidarity walk along with millions of youths globally across all developing countries.

The idea is to support them for the problematic strides they take to get fundamental education rights. The event organizers invited community members in the UAE to participate in this event, along with their friends and family. The assembly point for this Walk for Education event is set at Dubai Creek Park's Gate No two near the Al Garhoud Bridge.

For participating in this exciting event organized for a noble cause, online registration is allowed through 800Tickets by paying a registration fee of 35 AED. It will go as a donation to Dubai Cares for organizing this free educational program globally. Participants can also reach the venue on the 14th of February at 7:30 am and register offline. The walking event will start at 9 am with free entry to children below five years of age.

This symbolic walk has always seen the UAE’s spirit of generosity shine brightly as families, friends, and colleagues come together in solidarity with the millions of children and young people globally who embark on an arduous journey each day to get to school. I’m thrilled to line up alongside many new and familiar faces this year, and I urge the UAE community to join us in helping make a lasting difference in the lives of millions of children and youth around the world.”
