Local Abu Dhabi School Benefits from TWMA Donations

Posted by Jenny Adams


International environmental solutions provider, TWMA, has undertaken a series of CSR initiatives in support of Amity International School in Abu Dhabi.

Amity, a not-for-profit school in Abu Dhabi, recently built a brand new facility to allow the school to deliver the best possible education to pupils in the area. As a firm supporter of local charities and causes, TWMA donated outdoor benches and picnic tables to provide a comfortable shaded area for the children to eat lunch and socialise outdoors, as well as 100 Arabic language books.

TWMA's General Manager – Abu Dhabi, Robbie Pond, said: “We have worked hard to develop a successful business here in Abu Dhabi and we plan to be here for many years to come. In addition to our business focus we believe it is important to engage with the local community and give something back, and so being able to help the children and staff of Amity School has been fantastic.

“Historically, the pupils had nowhere to relax and talk during breaks and lunchtimes, so we were keen to create a great social area for them. The school was also keen to further develop the Arabic section of the library, so we purchased 100 titles that they had chosen to help them on their way. We visited Amity in February to hand over the books and benches and it was great to see for ourselves the difference our donations were making, and receive a lovely thank you book made by the children.”

Barbara Lubaczewska, principal of Amity International, said: “On behalf of Amity, I would like to say a huge thank you to the whole team at TWMA for their kind donations. The benches in particular have made such a difference for the children at lunchtimes and we've named one of them ‘The Friendship Bench'. If any of the children feel lonely or would like a friend to talk to, they can sit on the bench and a friendship ambassador will sit with them.”

As part of the ongoing engagement with Amity, TWMA also supported a recent beach clean-up initiative, organised by the school, which involved 100 volunteers assisting with the removal of rubbish from a beach local to the school.

Robbie said: “This was another great initiative organised by the school to ensure the children had a safe, clean play area on the local beach. We had the support of Abu Dhabi's Environmental Friends Society, who provided the necessary equipment, and we were proud to be part of such a great community effort that also ties in with TWMA's environmental ethos and values.”
