Maan Authority of Social Contribution Nurturing Collaboration to Address Social Challenges

The Authority of Social Contribution – Ma’an’s objective is to nurture a culture of collaboration between the public sector, the private sector, and civil society to create innovative solutions to address social challenges and make a positive impact on society. To this end, and in the light of the recent global health crisis, Ma’an launched the ‘Together We Are Good’ programme earlier in 2020, to attract and deploy financial, in-kind, and volunteering contributions for the support of those most impacted by the current health and economic situation. This ground-breaking programme supported over 350,000 individuals in areas including health, food, education, and necessities. Looking beyond this, and to ensure the delivery of Ma’an objectives in a sustainable manner, Ma’an established a foundation based at ADGM for optimally deploying capital to fund social projects, nurture social innovation, foster social enterprises with the goal of enhancing the lives of communities across the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. Ma’an has also launched in Abu Dhabi the first Social Impact Bond in the GCC area as part of an agreement signed between the Department of Community Development, Ma’an, Aldar, Aldar Education and Zayed Higher Organization to support the employment of people of determination.
