It started with you

As the One dnata community we support three causes: Humanitarian, Education and Wildlife Conservation & Nature. To encourage a sustainable future, we have aligned our charitable initiatives to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 2 (Zero Hunger), Goal 4 (Quality Education), and Goal 15 (Life on Land).

About dnata4good

dnata4good is an employee driven initiative that aims to provide accessible education, humanitarian assistance in crisis situations and preserve our wildlife and nature. We recognise the criticality of sustainable development and we want to ensure we do what we can to provide a sustainable future for generations to come.

We want to give back to the communities we serve by supporting charities and community development projects that align to our charitable pillars. We work with local charitable initiatives to raise funds, provide volunteer support, resources and much more.

dnata runs the world

On Saturday the 28th September 2019, our employees, friends, family and clients joined us to deliver on a promise we made: to walk the circumference of the Earth in one day while raising USD 400,000 for charities across the globe. Over 16,000 people joined us from 110 locations across to globe to run and walk a combined total of 60,000km and raise USD 407,000 for 60 charities.

 

The work we do

From building schools to protecting endangered wildlife, dnata4good is helping communities across the world by volunteering and raising funds. Your donation to dnata4good will help improve the lives of those less fortunate and leave a lasting impact for generations to come.

Humanitarian

Our employees are passionate about providing assistance to persons impacted by disaster, illness and crisis situations. Since 2016 we have contributed over 600,000 AED to cancer research, special needs centres, disaster relief efforts and meal programmes. Charities we have supported with our employees include the Salvation Army, Emirates Red Crescent and The Al Jalila Foundation. 

As of April 2019, we proudly stand alongside the World Food Programme to end world hunger through their Share the Meal programme.

The Chef Challenge will raise money to help provide meals to those in crisis situations or who do not have access to adequate meals.

Education

We believe in the importance of equal educational opportunities and have partnered with Dubai Cares to do our part in making primary education accessible in rural Asia and Africa. To date, we have contributed toward the construction of 10 schools in Nepal, Senegal, Malawi and Cambodia. These schools now provide primary education to over 1000 students and have 300 adults enrolled in an adult literacy programme.

Adopt a School

To help to break the cycle of poverty, dnata4good has partnered with Dubai Cares to eliminate the underlying obstacles that prevent children of all ages from attaining a basic education. This is achieved through building and renovating schools as well as equipping the schools with adequate facilities, material and academic support.

Wildlife conservation & nature

Safeguarding the environment and our wildlife is at the very heart of the dnata4good community. We are constantly looking to support not for profit community development projects that repurpose materials reducing waste and creating a positive impact while doing so. We actively engage, encourage and support wildlife conservation and nature campaigns across our operating regions. Through Wild Over Wildlife, our collaborative initiative with University of Pretoria, we support extensive wildlife research and we support global wildlife conservation efforts.
