These students are listed in Baks branches of Dubai Ajman and Ras Al Khaimah along with the Al Maktoum Foundation Centres – which are run by the society in Barsha Hatta and Aweer.

“Up to 2719 students in Dubai 1988 in Barsha 3064 in Hatta 2611 in Aweer 1546 in Ajman 1703 in Ras Al Khaimah and 3353 in Fujairah have benefited from the over Dh2.5 million coupons already distributed in the first stage of the annual project.”

“Up to 20000 students are expected to benefit from the programme this year” Al Awadhi said.
