Our two Dubai One security guards, Mahedi and Ikram, are having English lessons so they can get English language qualifications to help them get better jobs back in their home countries, hopefully in top end hotels where English is crucial.
My team at Dubai One has kindly offered to help out, but we're still short of funds.
The total cost of the lessons will end up being just over AED14,000, which will cover 4 months of classes. We have already raised about AED2,000 from my team, but need more.
I have set the amount needed at GBP2,000 (as you can't raise in AED on this site)... which is almost AED12,000, but if more is raised they could go beyond the 4 months so far allotted, to a 5th month or more, depending on what's raised by August 31st.
If all goes well, it will mean that two guys will have the tools to head home and get better jobs closer to their families, which is all they really want.
In the UAE there's a lot of people who need a leg up, so we're just focusing on the two guys that we can help, who work alongside us.
Any help you can give for this cause is much appreciated.
