Every year on March 15th, UAE Children’s Day aims to raise awareness about children’s rights. It is also a reminder that children deserve the opportunity to grow up in a safe and peaceful environment.
Each year Abu Dhabi continues to support young people in all aspects of life to grow and become resourceful future citizens. In addition to lighting up iconic landmarks, Abu Dhabi is also hosting a number of study programs for the future of the UAE. These buildings include Khalifa University, Mandarin Oriental Emirates Palace, Abu Dhabi Municipality, Adnec’s Capital Gate Building, Four Seasons Hotel and ADNOC Building.
