Upper secondary school-aged children belong to the group most in danger of permanently falling out of the education system so we are proud to bridge the gap by providing scholarships for students who are facing financial difficulties and lack of opportunities.

Our child development programs provide bespoke education initiatives, empowering children to rebuild their own futures and to support their families and, in turn, the wider community

Through committed shared dialogue with partners we can ensure the effectiveness and longevity of our programs.

START was founded by Al Madad Foundation in 2006, in partnership with Art Dubai, and seeks to educate and empower children through artistic expression. It runs full time art workshops in the UAE, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine and most recently, India…

Al Madad Foundation is a UK registered charity committed to the promotion of literacy and education for disadvantaged children across the Middle East.

Through our local partnerships, multimedia artistic expression, intercultural dialogue, educational projects and events we engage international actors to join us in developing and supporting programs to emancipate and empower those most vulnerable and excluded.

Sister foundation, START, seeks to educate and inform children about arts, history, culture and provide a safe haven for free imagination.
