Dubai Cares wins top Best in Biz awards
Dubai, May 29, 2012
Dubai Cares, the UAE-based philanthropic organisation, has won two major awards at the recent Best in Biz Awards 2012 EMEA.
It won Gold in the Nonprofit or Government Organization of the Year category and Silver in the Marketing Campaign of the Year category for its Girls’ Education Campaign which ran throughout the Ramadan in 2011.
“The entries to the Best in Biz Awards 2012 EMEA were reviewed by 22 highly experienced and senior members of the media from 11 countries and to have our efforts and initiatives recognized by such a distinguished panel is truly an honor for all of us,” said Tariq Al Gurg, chief executive officer of Dubai Cares.
“These awards are not only recognition of our team’s hard work, but also of the tremendous support we have received from the entire UAE community and our international implementing partners – we share this award with all of you.”
“None of this would have been possible without Sheikh Mohammed, whose guidance and leadership inspired us to achieve what we have – namely, to reach 7 million children in 28 developing countries in only five years. We hope that this win will not only set the benchmark for philanthropy in the UAE and the region, but also help us in raising more awareness of the various issues faced by children in developing countries in accessing quality primary education,” Al Gurg added.
The Best in Biz Awards is the only independent international business awards programme judged by members of the press and industry analysts.
Best in Biz Awards 2012 EMEA winners were selected based on the scoring of a distinguished panel of judges from top-tier newspapers, business and technology publications, as well as broadcast outlets.
Combined, the 22 judges on this year’s panel have more than 450 years of experience and have written for a total of more than 160 consumer, business, financial, trade and technology publications worldwide. – TradeArabia News Service
