Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Vice-President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai Dr. Hanif Hassan also commented on the recent 'Dubai Cares' initiative launched with an aim of providing education for one million poor children worldwide in an effort to break the cycle of global poverty.

Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan for educational excellence, as well as a number of other awards for academic achievement and innovation.
