UAE start-up company CAFU is aiming to raise over AED 150,000 to build and develop a school in Malawi.
CAFU, the on-demand car services platform, has teamed up with Dubai Cares and aims to reach AED 154,000 in donations to construct and run a primary school with two classrooms, which will cater to 100 students and two teachers.
In addition, the school will also host up to 60 adult men and women for literacy classes and education programmes.
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 the 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 the essential resource closer to the community.
Previously CAFU has rolled out several initiatives dedicated to helping the UAE, in line with the country’s United in Responsibility pillar.
The initiatives include the Al Ihsan Charity Association to provide free fuel for low-income families in Ajman and the ‘CAFU Creates’ SDG Challenge to empower young bright minds by offering a platform for them to pitch their innovative ideas, among many others.
Now CAFU is extending their support outside of the UAE through the Dubai Cares Adopt-A-School initiative.
