- Family Village, the first endowment community orphanage in Dubai managed by Awqaf and Minors Affairs Foundation (AMAF), organized a special event to help its 33 young orphans prepare for the new school year.
In collaboration with the Planning and Development Department at the Ports, Customs and free Zone Corporation – Dubai, the back-to-school event was intended to prepare children living in the village for the new academic year and encourage them to study and work hard to achieve their dreams. The children also received school bags, stationery and other school gifts during the event.
Founded in 2015, Family Village provides orphaned children with accommodation, education, health and psychological care in a homely, stable and balanced environment. The self-contained village encompasses all their basic needs and comprises full-time ‘mothers’ or care-givers for each group of children so that they receive all the care and love they need.
