Al Bustan Centre & Residence, the popular hotel-apartment among tourists and businessmen in the heart of Dubai, took part in this year’s Walk for Education campaign organized by Dubai Cares on 17th February 2017.
As an integral part of the property’s Corporate Social Responsibility that focuses on promoting safe and accessible education for children, the enthusiastic representatives of Al Bustan Centre and Residence joined thousands of participants who gathered at Dubai Creek Park for the cause and engaged in a variety of entertainment for friends and families.
Dubai Cares is a philanthropic organization working to improve children’s access to quality primary education in developing countries. Walk for Education, the symbolic three kilometer walk underlines one of the challenges children face in acquiring quality education in developing countries where they have to walk an average of three kilometers every day in order to go to school.
Moussa El Hayek, Chief Operating Officer of Al Bustan Centre and Residence, said: “We are honored to be associated with such initiatives that will bring positive change in the lives of children around the world. Our participation at the Walk for Education comes under the CSR endeavor, which aims to work towards empowerment of not just our youth, but also of nations.”
