A new university will be built in Dubai, backed by a Dh400 million donation from Sobha Realty, said Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai.

Sheikh Hamdan said the university will be part of the Mothers’ Endowment Initiative launched by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

Sheikh Hamdan thanked Sobha Realty founder PNC Menon for his support, and said that an agreement was signed on Monday (March 18).

Mohammad Al Gergawi, Minister of Cabinet Affairs, said the university will meet the highest international standards in education and enable thousands of students to finish their higher education.

The Mothers’ Endowment Initiative aims to support the educational needs of millions of people around the world from underprivileged backgrounds by providing educational materials, launching social programmes, and building schools and equipping them with supplies.

“Knowledge is hope. It is the gate to a better life as it builds up capable humans and advances countries,” Sheikh Mohammed said.

“Our role in the UAE is to help ensure people everywhere have education, hope and life. We have to contribute to creating a better future around the world,” he added. ICA/Expat Media
