Emirates NBD partnered with Manzil this year to bring to life Perspectives [link to video]. We continued our partnership to scale up PRIDE (People Receiving Independence and Dignity through Empowerment) bringing 147 capacity building and inclusion workshops to mainstream schools and centres for disabilities.
Manzil was founded in 1999 when a small group of parents and volunteers created the special family support group (SFS). This was the first group of its kind in Dubai for families of children with disabilities. SFS soon grew to include over 100 families and had a range of activities such as get-togetheers, field trips, workshops conducted by professionals, talent shows, and concerts to bring out the hidden talent of children.
The key members of the group got together to form Manzil, a non-profit centre which officially inaugurated on 7 February 2005 by HH Sheikha Jameela Mohammed Al Qassimi, Direct General of the Sharjah City for Humanitarian Services.
Meaning 'destination in Urdu or 'home' in Arabic, Manzil caters to diverse multinational children with cognitive challenges from age 4 to 30.

Emirates NBD works closely with Al Noor by providing market access to its students to sell their arts and crafts products at our branches. Aligning with our Bank’s customers day, a high traffic day, we set up a table for Al Noor’s students to showcase and sell artisan craft goods.
Al Noor Training Centre for Children with Special Needs is a non-profit organization, which falls under the Ministry of Social Affairs. Established in 1981, Al Noor has been providing high quality of professional training to the special needs community in Dubai for over 30 years. Starting with only 8 children the Centre has since expanded to facilitate and enrich the lives of up to 300 children and young people from different nationalities who have various physical and cognitive challenges such as Down syndrome, Cerebral Palsy and Autism. The new all-purpose facility from which Al Noor now operates opened its doors in April 2007 and was generously donated by His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the U.A.E. and Ruler of Dubai and was made possible through the benefaction of HRH Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein. Al Noor follows a holistic programme addressing all domains of development through a trans disciplinary assessment and intervention approach, all delivered at an ISO certified standard. In addition to teaching, the level of development is enhanced with Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy, Psychological services, Sports and Music. Al Noor also prides itself on an exceptionally effective work placement unit that trains its students with a capability for open employment, integrating them into mainstream society post education. A particular star of the Al Noor’s fundraising achievements is the Center’s very own Branded Retail Outlet – Smiles ‘n’ Stuff which helps to raise awareness and funds for the training centre. It is the only one of its kind in the GCC where all the products are handcrafted by children and young people with special needs enrolled at Al Noor. The goal of Al Noor’s vocational training unit is to make children skilled and productive members of the community and training is offered in Wood design technology, printing technology, fashion technology and Bakery units.
