One of the most direct ways for community members to get involved and make an impact is volunteering. Ma an has established a new volunteer programme that coordinates opportunities to contribute personal skills and time to various activities.
As part of the programme s rollout, Ma an has started with a government employee initiative. Employees will be able to select missions throughout the year from a Mission Basket. The missions are prompts for personal behavioral changes that benefit the community, such as reducing energy consumption.
COMMUNITY VOLUNTEER PROGRAMME
In 2020, our volunteers participated in several new initiatives. 88% of those surveyed said that their experience was above or matched their expectations. Volunteering is an important way to give back to the community and work hand-in-hand for social progress.
Volunteering to help out your community benefits the society and makes you feel great about yourself. When looking for a volunteering opportunity, we often don t realise we can start right at home. And in doing so encourage others to join in as well. We are asking you to become an agent of change and to team up with a member of your family to support your community. This programme aims to address key social priorities as identified by the Abu Dhabi Department of Community Development and encourage a culture of volunteering and participation within the community, family, and workplace.
