Building a village supporting Edinburgh’s homeless
As part of the Salience commitment to the community, Salience Consulting constantly seeks initiatives and programs in which it can participate to help the community. Salience looks to work for good causes and to make charitable donations that do not discriminate between those in need. In 2017, Salience collected USD 1,300 through a small fund raising event selling the smart TVs of the conference room. The money was contributed to Social Bite’s initiative to build a village for the homeless in Edinburgh. The village is made up of 10 two-bedroom houses and a community hub and was launched in the summer of 2018. More details and donation opportunity through this link.
Symbolic Walk for Education to support Year of Giving
Salience team joined the 8th annual Walk for Education on Friday 17th February 2017, organised by Dubai
Cares, part of Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives, to walk in solidarity with millions of children around the world who have limited or no access to education. The walk aimed at bringing attention to challenges faced by students in developing countries, and primarily the challenge of walking three kilometers to go to school every day. The event, which is in support of the ‘Year of Giving‘, took place at Dubai Creek Park and Salience team members volunteered to support this symbolic walk. 14,500 members of the UAE community joined the event to raise funds and heighten awareness.
Salience employees volunteer for “Operation Ozone” to help keep ocean life and their habitats healthy
Salience volunteered for “Operation Ozone” this weekend. Our Dubai team helped clean the beaches of Dubai in order to preserve ocean life. Together with 50 other volunteers from VolunteerinUAE.com we collected 12,538 cigarette buds in Jumeirah Open Beach. Operation Ozone is Volunteer in UAE’s umbrella project for all things green and environmentally conscious. It focuses entirely on collecting cigarette filters that are argued to be non-biodegradable, or at best, take decades to disappear from where they were dumped.
Salience supported the 6th Dubai Cares’ Walk for Education
Salience Consulting joined the Walk for Education organised by Dubai Cares to highlight the fact that millions of children have limited or no access to education and to support funding of education to children in need.
Salience Consulting sponsored employee participation in this three kilometers solidarity walk held at the Creek Park in the heart of Dubai on Friday 6 February. This year’s event was the 6th since the formation of the charity and attracted more than 8,000 residents of Dubai, who wanted to show support of giving children from developing countries better access to education.
The walk was a wonderful opportunity for members of the UAE community to volunteer their time, enjoy fun activities with family and friends and meet new people while helping those in need and Salience Consulting is proud to participate in such a worthy event in support of millions of children from developing countries with access to quality primary education.
Walk the distance. Make a difference…It’s for a Good Cause.
