Beit Al Khair Society has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the University of Dubai (UD) in a bid to strengthen their relationship and offer mutual benefits to both parties.
The MoU was signed by Abdeen Taher Al Awadi, General Manager, Beit Al Khair Society and Dr. Eesa Bastaki, President, University of Dubai.
According to the MoU, UD faculty members will participate in the society's charitable activities and in return, Beit Al Khair Society will support the Takaful Fund for students, offering financial support for those who require additional financial aid. The society will also offer training opportunities and volunteer placements to UD students with an interest in developing their skills through charity work and social services.
The MoU encourages university students who receive financial support from Beit Al Khair Society, as well as society employees, to enroll at the University of Dubai to complete their further studies. It will also entitle them to receive a scholarship with 20 per cent discount on University of Dubai fees.
UD will also offer workshops and opportunities to exchange ideas between the university and Beit Al Khair Society, with regard to topics related to charity efforts. The society will participate in reviewing dissertations, as well as organising mutual charitable and cultural activities within the university.
