Inclusive 4K

By on Mar 15, 2023 in Giving, Global

Yardi Dubai supports Al Noor Training Centre for Persons with Disabilities as part of the company’s global program of philanthropic support for nonprofits and NGOs.

Yardi Dubai is sponsoring education and training classes all year for Al Noor students, who include hundreds of children and young adults with physical and cognitive challenges.

Yardi’s Dubai office participated in a 4K Run at a recent family charity-raising event. The theme was Superheroes for Inclusion. The team gathered to run or walk with Al Noor students and their families, with a focus on supporting the inclusion of “people of determination from all walks of life.”

Established in 1981, the Al Noor Training Centre started with just 8 children. With a holistic approach to wellbeing and development, the centre has expanded and now provides high-quality professional training for people with disabilities in Dubai.

The centre has specially designed programmes to suit each individuals’ needs, which includes children and young adults with various physical and cognitive challenges such as down syndrome, cerebral palsy and autism. They also employ Trans-Disciplinary Assessment and Intervention methods to ensure each child gets the precise help they need.

Today, the Al Noor Training Centre has over 180 students with more than 28 nationalities. The goal of Al Noor’s Vocational Training Unit is to make students of determination skilled and productive members of the community.

Training is offered in wood design technology, printing technology, fashion technology and bakery units. The centre includes a well-equipped gym, a large multi-purpose auditorium, a swimming pool and a shaded outdoor playground.
