CAFU partners with Dubai Cares

On-demand car services platform CAFU and Dubai Cares, part of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives, have partnered to fund the building and development of a school in Malawi.

CAFU aims to raise Dhs154,000 in donations to help construct and run a primary school with two classrooms in one year, which will cater to 100 students and 2 teachers.

According to the state news agency, WAM, CAFU will create 18 months of literacy activities that will benefit parents and adults within these communities.

Through the partnership with Dubai Cares, under the campaign theme “Brick by Brick”, CAFU will work towards removing barriers and overcoming hurdles while providing important resources to inspire and nurture the leaders, innovators, and thinkers of tomorrow.

By sponsoring a school in Malawi, CAFU will champion 100 students on their journey to break the poverty cycle and work to increase school enrollment by 15-20 per cent. The joint efforts will be focused on raising funds to build a classroom fitted with quality primary education resources – from furniture to textbooks and resources and bring this essential resource closer to the community.

The school will help educate primary school children and host up to 60 adult men and women for literacy classes and education programmes in rural Malawi.

CAFU has rolled out several CSR initiatives in the past,  including the Al Ihsan Charity Association to provide free fuel for low-income families in Ajman and ‘CAFU Creates’ sustainable development goal challenge to empower young bright minds by offering a platform for them to pitch their innovative ideas, among many others.

In January, Cafu also announced a new venture for on-demand energy systems using innovative battery storage across the UAE. It entered into a JV with the region’s largest distributed solar energy company SirajPower, and climate impact investor Creek, to establish the new venture called Hypr.
