The Takatof programme will create volunteering and community service opportunities
Abu Dhabi Airports and Emirates Foundation have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to encourage social welfare across the UAE for Emirati youth and expats.
Through strategic partnerships and programmes, Emirates Foundation aims to nurture talent by providing individuals with opportunities to build awareness and equip them with life skills.
The 'Takatof' programme aims to raise public awareness of social needs and promote the culture of volunteering as a way of life among the various groups of the community.
Takatof previously supported familiarisation trials at the new terminal at Abu Dhabi International Airports, providing more than 5,000 volunteers who stress-tested the new building in readiness for opening.
Abu Dhabi Airports managing director and interim chief executive officer Elena Sorlini said: “Volunteering is a great way to learn more about a particular industry and explore it as a potential future occupation and we encourage all youth to consider aviation as a future career.”
Emirates Foundation CEO Ahmed Taleb Al Shamsi added: “This MoU not only strengthens our commitment to the nation, but also creates invaluable volunteering opportunities in a vital industry.
“Together, we aim to cultivate a culture of service, unity, and empowerment, ensuring that progress extends to every corner of our diverse community. This partnership is a testament to our collective dedication to a brighter, more inclusive future."
