The Dubai Ruler called out to Arab hopemakers on Twitter.
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, on Monday, called out to hopemakers in the Arab world.
On the launch of the third round of Arab Hope Makers initiative, Sheikh Mohammed said that “Every person has a capacity to give and a talent to invest in serving societies.”
He added, “Water drops make a river, and reigniting civilizations starts with giving. Creating hope will spark a new life in our region.”
The third round of Arab Hope Makers initiative, the largest of its kind in the region, launched to celebrate more inspiring philanthropic efforts that serve humanity and make a difference in societies.
Under the umbrella of Mohamed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI), Arab Hope Makers are recognized for their humanitarian projects and initiatives that improve lives, alleviate the suffering of those in need and empower marginalized groups.
Through honoring people who devote their time and efforts to help others, the initiative aims to spread hope and instill the value of giving in society to fight despair and pessimism in the region.
Sheikh Mohammed said the initiative’s previous two editions proved that “the Arab world is home to thousands of inspiring unsung heroes and positive change makers” adding that “The Hope Makers are role models of altruism and compassion.”
He noted that “Creating hope will help build a stable and prosperous future in the Arab world.” He added, “It is of great importance to invest energies and capabilities in making a positive change and transforming challenges to opportunities for development and prosperity.”
He stressed that “people cannot live without hope. Therefore, creating hope is necessary to fight despair and pessimism in the Arab world.
“Sharing stories of hope expands people’s horizons and helps face challenges.”
Sheikh Mohammed urged Hope Makers to share their stories in this year’s initiative, stressing that “we will continue to support Hope Makers in the Arab world.”
The Arab Hope Makers initiative is dedicated to individuals, teams, and entities that seek to make a positive impact in societies through humanitarian campaigns and projects that address various fields. Hope Makers are those who improve lives through education, health, environment, culture, empowerment or community development initiatives, services, and volunteer programs.
