The Programme

Together We Are Good was set up to give the community a chance to support Abu Dhabi Government’s efforts to address the current health and economic challenges. Launched by the Authority for Social Contribution – Ma'an, the programme is bringing together our community. It is opening the door for financial and in-kind contributions from people and companies to offer a helping hand for everyone in our society.

“I am proud of the rapid response shown by all members of the UAE community and for the support extended to achieve the goals for which it was established: to provide a dignified life for both citizens and residents. We should all be proud of what we have achieved to date having accomplished the aims of the campaign, and we look forward to building a legacy for future generations in the field of social support and cementing the concept of community spirit, with enhanced responsibility and participation, so our citizens and residents can live a better life at all times, whatever the circumstances.”

His Excellency Dr. Mugheer Khamis Al Khaili

Chairman of the Department of Community Development – Abu Dhabi

“I have been continually moved, impressed and astounded by the depth and strength of the response from everyone in Abu Dhabi, from individuals and organisations. These unprecedented times have forged an unprecedented display of community spirit and togetherness. To have sustained such positive momentum and to have helped so many people was beyond what we thought possible, and, through our unity and selfless actions, we have created a wonderful legacy that we can all justifiably be proud of. I would like to offer my sincere gratitude to everyone that participated and look to a more positive future for all".

Her Excellency Salama Al Ameemi,

Director General, the Authority of Social Contribution - Ma’an

Explore Maan's Mission to Social Impact

Ma'an was established in February 2019 by the Department of Community Development in Abu Dhabi with the aim of bringing together the government, the private sector and civil society to support a culture of social contribution and participation. The authority will deliver solutions for social challenges with five main pillars of work – a Social Investment Fund, a Social Incubator, Outreach Management, Community Engagement Programs and the introduction of a new type of public contracting, Social Impact Bonds.

Ma'an will support the third sector to flourish in Abu Dhabi, enabling responsible not for profit associations or foundations and social enterprises to contribute to the development of strong, active and connected communities. Ma’an Authority for Social Contribution is a 'Ghadan 21' accelerator programme initiative, supporting Abu Dhabi to become one of the best places in the world to do business, invest, live, work and visit.

Who will benefit?

The programme directs contributions according to the social priorities set by the Government of Abu Dhabi as it steps up its preparedness to respond to the impact of the current health and economic challenges. Working alongside relevant partners, the funds will be put towards providing educational and medical aid, as well as food supplies and basic living needs.

The Social Investment
Fund

The Social Investment Fund pillar, administered by Ma’an is Abu Dhabi’s official government channel to receive contributions from the public sector, private sector and community to tackle the most pressing social challenges identified in the Emirate. 

It’s investment decisions align with the United Nation’s Social Development Goals and the priorities of the Department of Community Development in Abu Dhabi.
 

Our Helping Hands

Hundreds of people from all walks of life have come together to show their support through financial contributions, in-kind donations and volunteering. Businesses have pledged money, goods and services while individuals - including doctors, retired military personnel and various other specialties – have offered their expertise.

We thank each and every individual who is lending a helping hand to support the community in this moving display of unity.

Partners and Contributors

Through ‘Together We Are Good’, Maan stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the government, companies, non- profits and other organizations to support our community.

Their financial contributions, offers of practical help, ideas and resources are helping support vulnerable members of our community in light of these pressing health and economic challenges.

It has been incredible to see such a spirit of unity in the face of these pressing times and we thank everyone who has been part of our journey so far.

 

Volunteers

In addition to financial and in-kind contributions to the Together We are Good Programme, Ma’an welcomed many volunteers from the community.

Ma'an's volunteer programme provided an opportunity for those who wished to express their community spirit and support their fellow residents across a range of initiatives, with thousands of people from all walks of society answering the call.
