4,600 Syrian refugee have benefited from being enrolled in the remedial non-formal education classes provided by Dubai Cares. With the integration of mindfulness activities for social-emotional learning into the education program, the Education in Emergency Evidence for Action (3EA) program decreased children’s stress levels, improved their social skills and well-being, improved children’s executive functioning skills, increased psychological resilience and improved academic performance.
Central to Dubai Cares’ approach is a focus on monitoring, evaluation and learning. This ongoing process enables the organization to gather evidence collected during regular field visits, as well as through reports by academic institutions that Dubai Cares appoints to independently evaluate its programs. Dubai Cares uses this knowledge to design and fund innovative programs that test alternative models and hypothesis to increase the impact of its interventions. Monitoring, evaluation and learning also helps Dubai Cares understand what works and what does not. It ensures the organization’s ability to adapt to changes, mobilize more resources, and better utilize funds.
Gender equality is a cross-cutting theme in all Dubai Cares’ education programs with an approach that aims to secure equal access for boys and girls to safe learning environments with adequate facilities, materials and academic support from gender sensitized teachers and communities.
