DUBAI – The next two years are going to be busy for Filipinos in the UAE, with the Filipino Social Club (FilSoc) revealing an exciting lineup of projects.
FilSoc, the first Filipino group licensed by the Community Development Authority (CDA) in Dubai, said it aims to organise inclusive events and start providing more sustainable programs as it looks to “move away from short-termed, bubbled-pop solutions that rarely impact the lives of the beneficiaries”.
On March 27, the group will organise a walkathon, followed by a Filipino Youth Festival in April and a series of Skills Upgrading Sessions in May. Further details about these programs are expected to be revealed soon.
The group also said that it will donate sponsorship funding to educational and disaster rehabilitation programs in the Philippines and charities in the UAE.
The club has waived the annual membership fee of Dh120 until June 24 and has offered associate membership for free to Filipinos under 20 years old. ICA/Expat Media
