Al Qasimi Foundation
March 25, 2014
2013 has been a season of progress and innovation at the Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi Foundation for Policy Research, and the team is delighted to be issuing the Foundation's second annual report.
This year, the Al Qasimi Foundation has conducted and collaborated on research across the United Arab Emirates, published multiple working papers, increased the number of professional development courses available to educators, and built relationships with local policymakers as well as with key stakeholders both inside and outside of the UAE. Its staff presented research at conferences, trained over 250 educators, instituted a series of community events, and worked with vulnerable populations in order to empower them. In addition, the Foundation welcomed the Sheikh Saqr Overseas Scholarship Program for talented Emiratis.
The Al Qasimi Foundation is committed to serving the needs of the people of Ras Al Khaimah with an emphasis on education and sustainable development. The Foundation remains focused on helping the local community come together and providing a range of development opportunities for people across Ras Al Khaimah, the UAE, and the Gulf Cooperation Council. The team is confident that 2014 will be an even more productive year in each of its three focus areas—research, capacity development, and community engagement—and that the Foundation will continue to serve the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah to the best of its ability.
