Some 85 volunteers comprising Education City students and faculty took part in Reach Out To Asia (Rota)’s “Make a Difference Day” (MADD) to accomplish a number of community improvement projects in Doha and Al Khor.
Volunteer activities at the event organised in partnership with Education City Campus Life included visits to the Qatar Foundation for Elderly People Care and the Qatar Animal Welfare Society (QAWS).
Rota director Essa al-Mannai, who was delighted at the success of MADD, said: “A big thank you to everyone who took part and ensured that Make a Difference Day 2011 really did make a difference.
“It is people who bring about change in the world and helping even for just one day can make a big impact.”
“MADD is an important event for the students of Education City to come together and give back to the Qatar community. It is our hope that through these service projects and other opportunities throughout the year our students will develop a life-long passion for service,” Education City Campus Life co-ordinator Lindsay Coco said.
