“Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation is always keen to partner with the UAE’s leading business organisations to spread innovation, leadership and excellence, nationally and throughout the Arab world. This MoU on ‘My Family Reads’ initiative is testimony to ADNIC’s commitment to community development and our own role of disseminating a culture of reading and knowledge across the UAE,” said Mr. Saif Al Mansoori, Acting CEO, Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation
This partnership will allow ADNIC to distribute 4000 books to it’s employees, clients and partners to encourage them to read. The initiative follows the directive issued by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, who announced 2016 as the Year of Reading, and is in line with the launch of the Arab Reading Challenge by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to encourage a million students in the Arab world to read 50 million books during each academic year.
