UAE's 'Year of Giving' logo chosen
Mohammed bin Rashid, vice president and ruler of Dubai, recently approved the logo, which was created after the UAE president decreed 2017 as "The Year of Giving."
"The Year of Giving was launched by the President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa, and we expect exceptional success in 2017," Mohammad bin Abdullah Al Gergawi, chairman of the Higher National Committee for the Year of Giving, said. "We also expect the positive participation of the private sector and social figures to translate the vision of Sheikh Khalifa to be achieved by the end of the year."
Three "pillars of focus" will make the year: creating a sense of community responsibility in the private sector, enhancing volunteerism and encouraging volunteer programs, and instilling loyalty and a commitment to serve in the country’s next generations.
