Sandooq Al Watan is a community initiative launched by a group of prominent Emirati businessmen that seeks to promote a sense of social cohesion in Emirati society. The initiative is in line with the UAE leadership’s vision of a sustainable future for the country and its citizens. It also reflects the private sector’s commitment to social responsibility and the positive role that Emirati businessmen and women play in supporting social development projects and plans.
The projects and initiatives of the Fund focus on vital sectors that directly impact the nation and its citizens. As such, the Fund supports four key areas: sponsoring talented individuals, providing professional guidance to develop young local talents, encouraging start-up commercial projects that have a social impact, and supporting applied research and innovations.
Sandooq Al Watan’s mission is to attract investments and community contributions in order to utilise them for the benefit of the Emirati society via diverse projects that serve strategic economic and social sectors.
