Gulf for Good recently graced our digital billboard on Sheikh Zayed Road to celebrate their 20th birthday. In 20 years, they have organised more than 91 challenges with over 1,585 participants in 27 countries, supporting 61 children’s charities. They have raised close to US$4 million to build schools, children’s homes, hospitals and more, changing the lives of countless children around the world.
Founded in 2001 under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Gulf for Good raises funds through adventure challenges to support underprivileged children around the world. Each adventure challenge supports a worthy charity in the same country where the challenge takes place. The sponsorship collected by participants is spent on worthwhile child-related projects managed by charities focused on education, housing, and healthcare. The organisation believes that every child has the right to a happy, sustainable life.
