SOME CREDENTIALS 6th January 2014 Al Diyafah High School Dubai U.A.E , Community Outreach Programme- Sri Lanka, 2014. U.A.E. Dear Mahesh, The Foundation of Goodness wishes to thank you and the 23 boys and girls from Al Diyafah High School Dubai U.A.E. ‘Community Outreach Programme, Sri Lanka -January 2014’ for the generous act of ‘spreading light’ by donating 50 solar power lamps to be distributed among rural disadvantaged students who have no access to electricity. As part of the community service, I went to Al Noor Training Centre for two days to assist the teachers and volunteer. Taking care of children with special needs brought a lot of humility into me. It was a great and memorable experience. I wish I get an another opportunity to go to Al Noor Centre for volunteering. Thank you for giving me this opportunity – Hitiksha Devnani Khaleej Times: Feb 12, Schools like Al Diyafah High School, Dubai also recently organised its first Blood Donation Camp with the Dubai Blood Donation Centre at Al Wasl
