Mawhibatna Go to Initiatives

The programme aims to identify the UAE’s most outstanding, gifted local youth and nurture their talents through a variety of specialised world-class programmes that develop their capacities and enable them to reach their full potential. The set of programmes aim to identify 2,000 gifted students and support 500 of them by the end of 2021. As of March 2021, Mawhibatna identified 401 gifted students and supported 324 of them through advanced learning summer programmes of 4 + years beyond the students’ academic level. After the course the students are reassessed to determine their progress. It was proven during our experience that at the end of the program students scored 71% higher as compared to the initial test scores. Mawhibatna is a key pillar for Sandooq Al Watan. Through it, we believe the UAE will produce the next generation of noble prize winners, scientists, successful businessmen, and world-renowned personalities that will help the UAE achieve its aspirations in the future.
