Who we are?

SmallWorld is an annual fundraising event that brings people together, residing in the UAE, from various ethnic backgrounds. SmallWorld is committed to lending a helping hand to those who are less fortunate, from different parts of the globe, specifically, children. This event hosts an International Night that embraces different cultural backgrounds, and grants the participants the chance to present their national food, costumes, local dances and traditional music. The aim of this festive event is to raise funds to support charity based institutions. SmallWorld works on four main dimensions that are considered the backbone of SmallWorld: First, Raise awareness for our cause. Second, Raise funds to support the underprivileged children all over the world. Third, Act as a microscope on the charities we are dealing with in order to make sure that the raised funds reach the right people, as transparency is one of our most important traits. Fourth, Bring people together from all walks of life, under the umbrella of SmallWorld to celebrate our humanity. Donations provided through SmallWorld will be sent out on the behalf of the children of the UAE to the less fortunate children around the world. Under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Nahyan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, each year a different charity organization will be chosen , and the money raised will be divided among the participating charity organizations nominated by the countries participating in the event.


Our challenge

Making sure that all the funds reach the right people and serving the right purpose, although we do select accountable and credible charities we still follow up with them step by step, and watch them closely to make sure that each child benefits from our donations.This year our aim is to LIBERATE & EDUCATE. We are going to support some of the children who are suffering from exploitation and provide them either with education or help them acquire a skill, which in turn will help them lead a better life.

Our values

In addition to the above we must mention the valuable input of the Red Crescent on working with the President of SmallWorld to carefully select the appropriate credible charities for each year and guarantee that the funds are well spent. Additionally, we must mention the efforts of the selected charities in following up closely with us, and sometimes even amending their work to suit our requirements. Last but not least, we must point out the volunteers' passion and force, which makes of SmallWorld a bigger success every year.
