Our brand identity symbolizes the interconnecting water channels that make up the Falaj, the ancient irrigation system in Al Ain, Abu Dhabi. Sharing responsibility for the Falaj, the community took turns to look after and maintain their small section of the irrigation system. Working together, each individual action became one great outcome and the whole community shared in the wealth brought by fresh water.

The event brought together young volunteers with seniors, giving them the opportunity to build friendships, share stories, values and lessons between the generations.

Our Journey of Generations initiative which promotes community integration and social interaction between senior citizens and volunteers is expanding to more locations in Abu Dhabi as part of a new partnership with @AlMubarakahuae .

Dr. Mugheer Khamis Al Khaili, Chairman of the Department of Community Development and H.E. Salama Al Ameemi, Director General of Ma'an.

A key achievement to Ma’an, our aim is to design and build social programs in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi which address a priority social need – and then support not-for-profit associations and social enterprises to take over the running of successful initiatives.

بالتزامن مع يوم التطوع العالمي، نسلط في هيئة "معاً" الضوء على جهود متطوعينا، وعلى دورهم الكبير في إنجاح مشروع "رحلة أجيال". حديث كبار المواطنين بشغف عن تجاربهم مع المتطوعين، والعلاقات الرائعة التي قامت بينهم، ما هي إلا دليل على التأثير الكبير الذي يمكن تحدثه أفعال بسيطة على الأشخاص من حولنا.. كن مصدرا للنفع والإلهام.. وشارك بالتطوع في الفعاليات المختلفة في دولة الإمارات العربية المتحدة من خلال بوابة volunteers.ae
