Campaigns and Forums:

  1. Violence Against Women Campaign
    The campaign runs annually in November in line with the global agenda of the United Nations’ "International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women", which is known as the Orange Day. An annual campaign is carried out to raise awareness on how to reduce violence against women and how to report any violations they are exposed to by broadcasting awareness videos, educational infographics, talks and workshops. The first campaign was launched in 2015 and was followed by several campaigns that were well received by community members and decision makers. The campaign highlights different topics each year, tackling different types of abuse, and highlights the importance of a woman’s well-being and mental health.

  2. Annual Media Campaign to Combat Human Trafficking
    The media campaign coincides annually with the International Day against Human Trafficking on the 30th of July. The Foundation's campaign this year focused on the issue of child exploitation, especially sexual exploitation and forced labor in the labor market. The Foundation participated in raising awareness by publishing three awareness videos that reflect the scale of this exploitation globally and its consequences on children.

  3. Justice and Women's Issues Forum “For Justice"
    In December 2021, the Foundation organized the Forum on Justice and Women's Issues with the participation of a number of experts and specialists in the legal, social and security fields with the aim of reflecting the reality of women's issues in Dubai Courts, understanding the progress of justice in various women's cases, and discussing ways to expedite the resolution of these cases. The forum came up with a number of recommendations, the most important one is to reduce procedures and dates of attendance by activating the role of the judge of urgent and temporary matters and activating the one-day court.
