Corporate Social Responsibility
dnata4good - empowering and delivering change
dnata4good is dnata’s employee giving and engagement initiative that empowers our people to support causes they are passionate about and come together as a workforce, to give to and help others.
In December 2015, total fundraising by our employees in support of dnata4good crossed the AED 1 million mark, a sum which was matched by dnata to bring the total to AED 2 million.
Importantly, dnata4good is driven by our passionate, global workforce. Their volunteering and fundraising initiatives – from baking cakes to scaling mountains – are delivering real change.
dnata4good has now funded the building of five schools and physically built three of those – one in Senegal, one in Malawi, and one in Nepal.
The Rhino Revolution rhino orphanage, also supported by dnata4good fundraising, took in four orphaned rhino calves during the year. The young rhinos will be under expert care for the next three years, before being released back into the wild.
Our employees are supporting a wealth of other causes that they are personally passionate about under the dnata4good banner – changing lives while empowering and inspiring our own workforce.
Our fundraising pledge
As of the end of 2015 dnata employees had raised over 1m AED for charity. Better still, dnata has pledged to match staff contributions to its three partner charities, up to AED 1 million in the first year and each year thereafter. The funds raised are already being put to good use, supporting charities that provide education to break the cycle of poverty and promoting wildlife protection and conservation.
