The Authority of Social Contribution – Ma’an, Abu Dhabi Government’s official platform for social contributions, has announced the Abu Dhabi Gives back drive, calling on the Abu Dhabi community to dig deep during Ramadan and make a sustainable social impact by supporting social priorities most aligned to their priorities and values.
Reflecting the values of the authority, the campaign encourages the community to unite and looks towards an inclusive society through giving, contribution, and participation.
Synonymous with the spirit of the holy month, contributions to Ma’an will impact the whole community. Inspired by the Emirati falaj irrigation system developed by the countries forefathers which exemplifies the shared wealth and what can be achieved when collaborating together, the campaign encourages community members to contribute to support an array of social priorities including health, education, environment, social sector and infrastructure.
The authority has recently launched a new mobile application, Abu Dhabi MAAN, which enables contributors to quickly and easily make their pledges to their selected projects which can be downloaded on both Apple and Android devices.
Faisal Alhmoudi, Executive Director of the Social Investment Fund at The Authority of Social Contribution Ma’an said: “Those who share contributions through Ma’an become part a collaborative community that supports in the delivery of sustainable solutions and long-lasting social impact.
“Ma’an’s fundraising activities allow community members across the emirate of Abu Dhabi to enable third sector organisations to support a number of social priorities aligned with the government’s ongoing commitments, in turn contributing to Abu Dhabi’s vision of a collaborative and participatory social ecosystem and inclusive society.”
Change-makers who prefer to make generic contributions are also able to do so by selecting the Social Investment Fund option which enables Ma’an to distribute accordingly based on specific area needs.
Since being established in 2019, Ma’an has provided financial support to around 700,000 people in Abu Dhabi through its various social programmes and initiatives to create a positive, long-term, and sustainable impact on the community.
Contributions can be made via www.maan.gov.ae, or through the app available on Android and Apple devices.
