Promoting National Identity and Social Innovation

Sandooq Al Watan currently provides funding and support for 7 initiatives aimed at the need to create a sustainable civic engagement eco-system that enables Emiratis to contribute to social innovation and solidify their national identity. The UAE has a unique demographic structure and population dynamics that present challenges for the promotion of national identity and community development.’ Therefore, we provide funding and support for initiatives that contribute to the preservation and promotion of national identity and social innovation.
