Total UAE’s commitment to support Emirates Foundation through Takatof

Total UAE has been in a committed partnership with the ‘Emirates Foundation’ since 2006, contributing to its work in all public-private funded initiatives to improve youth welfare across the UAE.

The aim is to collaboratively create positive social impacts in 4 key aspects: social inclusion, community engagement, leadership and youth empowerment. By showing continuous support to the foundation, Total became an important “connect partner”, which symbolizes the appreciation of the collaborative effort within the partnership.

Amongst the supported initiatives are the ‘Takatof’ volunteering opportunity network, connecting volunteers with their initiative of choice, the ‘Kafa’at’ initiative, aiming to prepare the Emirati youth for private sector employment and the unique ‘Sanid’ (“support” in Arabic) emergency relief volunteer program, set up in cooperation with the National Emergency Crises and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA).

With the Emirates Foundation priding itself with promoting values of compassion, transparency, integrity and entrepreneurship, Total sees this hands-on foundation as an ideal partner to express its interest in contributing to the youth community advancement of the country.

Focusing on company integration into all sponsored foundations, information sessions about the Emirates Foundation activities are held to encourage interested Total employees to actively take part as volunteers, such as in the Ramadan initiative 2015.
