A group of 93 associates from VFS Global joined the Walk for Education 2015. Organised by Dubai Cares, the Walk for Education is held every year to raise awareness and funds to help provide education to children in need. Led by Paul John Maliekkal, Regional CEO – Africa, Americas, Australasia, Europe and Middle East, and Ajit Alexander, COO Middle East and Africa, the VFS Global team gathered on Friday, February 6 at Dubai Creek Park next to Al Garhoud Bridge at 8am sharp for a day of fun and activities.
Reiterating VFS Global’s commitment to the cause of empowerment through education, Paul John Maliekkal stressed, “We are delighted to support this CSR initiative. It is a great cause and of immense significance for the entire community. Education is the right of every child and the only way to progress and change lives. Education is the power station of any society that unlocks its real potential.. .
The event was organised by Dubai Cares – a philanthropic organization working to improve children’s access to quality primary education in developing countries. The organisation was launched in September 2007 by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai.
