Educate the Heart – School Campaign

Learning is essential, and learning to be kind, helpful and caring is equally important.
That's why The Big Heart Foundation wants to educate your heart.

Our Achievements

First, what’s The Big
Heart Foundation?

Our foundation was established by Her Highness Sheikha Jawaher Bint Mohammed Al Qassimi, Wife of His Highness the Ruler of Sharjah and Chairperson of the Supreme Council for Family Affairs.

The Foundation’s mandate is to protect and empower vulnerable children and their families in vulnerable situations across the world by providing them with health, education and emergency aid services – among others – through various funds and programs.

Participate in our competition

So what’s the competition about and how to participate?

Many of us are very lucky to have the things we do and live our lives without worrying about the basic needs such as food, shelter, education and safety. That is why, it is important to share what we have with those in need. Helping others is everyone’s duty.

With this competition, you will raise awareness on TBHF’s efforts and fundraise for our educations programs which makes a big difference in children’s lives and fill educational gaps. Efforts to respond to the identified gaps include building schools, providing scholarships, teachers capacity building, and improving access to education.
