Ajman: The Ajman Center for Social Responsibility (Ajman CSR) – an affiliate of the Ajman Chamber of Commerce and Industry – has implemented the ‘Winter Clothes for Students’ initiative, in collaboration with the Manar Al-Iman Charitable Foundation and the Ajman-based Socks Factory.

The campaign is part of Ajman CSR’s efforts to promote social responsibility and raise awareness about its importance and key principles. It aims to highlight the role that private companies can play and the kind of programmes and initiatives they can implement to support public benefit institutions and the community as a whole, as well as to ensure sustainability.

Nasser Al Dhafri, CEO of the Ajman Center for Social Responsibility, applauded the constant collaboration from both public benefit institutions and the private sector, which has helped promote a culture of social responsibility, paving the way for impactful initiatives. 

“The Ajman Center for Social Responsibility is committed to maintaining communication and collaboration with government and private entities, as well as public benefit institutions, in order to promote and implement best practices in the field of social responsibility,” he asserted. “The ‘Winter Clothes for Students’ initiative plays an important role in engaging companies and factories to play a role towards charitable and community initiatives. It helps raise awareness about corporate social responsibility and promotes it among businesses. The campaign ensures Ajman’s long-term and sustainable social and economic wellbeing.”

Al Dhafri thanked Manar Al-Iman Charitable Foundation for implementing the initiative, and the Socks Factory for its consistent contributions to charitable programmes that serve the public and promote community work in the Emirate of Ajman. He called on all other establishments and companies to broaden their efforts and participate in social responsibility initiatives, which would help ensure their sustainability and strengthen their relations with the local community.

For his part, His Excellency Nasser bin Ali Al Junaibi, Executive Director of the Manar Al-Iman Charitable Foundation, said: “The Foundation is always dedicated to strengthening collaboration with all state institutions, and to building partnership with government and private entities, in line with the national vision of the UAE and its wise leadership. We appreciate the great efforts that the Ajman Center for Social Responsibility has undertaken with the ‘Winter Clothes for Students’ initiative, in collaboration with Manar Al-Iman Charitable Foundation. Such initiatives instil the values of charity, generosity, collaboration, and social solidarity.”

The initiative will see the Ajman Center for Social Responsibility cooperate with the Socks Factory, located in the Ajman Free Zone. The Factory has pledged to provide more than 8,500 items of winter clothing to be distributed to eligible students, in accordance with Permit No. (1/273/2021) from the Ajman Coordinating Council for Charity Work.

The Manar Al-Iman Charitable Foundation plays a notable social and charitable role. The Foundation works to support education, where the total number of student beneficiaries over the past years exceeded 42,000 male and female students from 39 nationalities.
