In line with our CEMEX’s Corporate Social Responsibility being a fundamental component of its business model, CEMEX UAE participated in Dubai Cares’ Walk for Education 2017 held last 17th of February, at Dubai Creek Park. This year’s 8th edition of the Walk for Education is in support of the UAE’s “Year of Giving 2017” which allowed organizations and families residing in the UAE to support a great cause.


Walk for Education, a central pillar of Dubai Cares’ community engagement efforts, is a symbolic 3-kilometer walk that aims to highlight one of the challenges children in poor and developing countries face to acquire education, where they have to walk an average of 3 kilometers every day in order to go to school.

This activity also allows members of the UAE community to demonstrate their support and contribute funds to provide underprivileged children the access to quality education.
