Corporate Social Responsibility
Our charitable efforts aim to enrich the lives of underprivileged young people around the world.
As the UAE’s leading integrated property developer, The First Group has forged a reputation for delivering the highest quality services and support to our growing international client base.
However, true to our corporate mantra, ‘Foundation for Growth’, we have also developed a robust and innovative Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy that focuses on securing a brighter future for disadvantaged communities around the world.
Our flagship Enriching Young Lives programme has helped transform the lives of thousands of children living in underprivileged communities over the past decade.
Our CSR efforts extend to organising major events promoting important charities in the UAE and abroad, such as The First Group 7 Emirates Cycle Challenge. Each year, amateur and professional cyclists ride across the UAE to raise charitable funds that support the fantastic work of Dubai Cares, the UAE-based global philanthropic organisation, and Rashid Center for People of Determination, whose educational programmes reflect the overarching goals of Enriching Young Lives. We also provide on-the-ground support to our charitable partners working in underprivileged areas.
Our ambitious talent mentoring programme, developed in conjunction with Aawaaz Foundation – India’s leading education provider – provides talented students living in underprivileged areas of India with the emotional and financial support required for them to fulfil their personal and professional dreams, granting them the tools to one day give back to their own communities.
Cyclists participating in The First Group 7 Emirates Cycle Challenge undertook an epic 550km four-day ride across all seven emirates of the UAE, raising awareness about the vital work of The Rashid Center for People of Determination.
