MBRGI joins hands with Emirates Red Crescent to spread high-tech Madrasa e-learning platform in villages and refugee camps

  • Madrasa e-learning platform attracts over 1.7 million registered users and 32 million views since its launch.

The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Emirates Red Crescent to spread the outreach of Madrasa e-learning platform to children in remote villages and refugee camps.

Through offline solutions, the platform provides 5,000 free Arabised videos in general science, math, biology, chemistry and physics to students from kindergarten to grade 12 without internet access.

Through the agreement, the Emirates Red Crescent will facilitate the offline high-tech educational content to students living in remote areas and support the distribution and follow-up process, as part of the broader goal to reach students in 1,000 villages.

The Emirates Red Crescent will distribute the innovative offline solutions, ranging from Madrasa tablet, WiFi hotspot device, Madrasa flash memory (USB) and Madrasa Smart Bag, as part of its programmes and projects in areas it oversees and covers.

Since its launch last October, the Madrasa e-learning platform attracted over 1.7 million registered users and generated about 32 million views across the world.

His Excellency Saeed Al Eter, Assistant Secretary General of MBRGI, said the e-learning platform aims to implement the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to spread education and knowledge and maximize the benefit to the less fortunate across the Arab world.

The partnership, he said, meets the government’s vision to integrate efforts of local government entities to implement sustainable humanitarian, developmental and philanthropic projects that empower and equip people with necessary skills to improve their lives.

Hamoud Abdullah Mohammed Al Junaibi, Deputy Secretary-General for Marketing and Donations Collection Sector at the Emirates Red Crescent, said the authority seeks to build impactful and effective partnerships with other local entities in humanitarian and developmental fields to facilitate quick response to critical challenges. He added that the agreement provides further opportunities for coordination and cooperation between both entities to serve the significant cause of spreading education through innovative solutions.

Al Junaibi stressed that the authority will immediately commence work to meet the agreement’s requirements to facilitate educational content effectively to marginalized students.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, launched “Madrasa” e-learning platform for 1,000 villages in February to support learning for Arab students living in villages, remote areas and refugee camps with no internet access.

The platform provides 5,000 free Arabised videos in general science, math, biology, chemistry and physics to students from kindergarten to grade 12 without internet access through four innovative offline solutions.

Meanwhile, the Emirates Red Crescent launches humanitarian and social projects dedicated to improving lives, empowering people and alleviating the suffering of marginalized and less fortunate communities.
