President Message

Mrs. Salam Hamzeh Ghaith

Founder and President of SmallWorld

Living in the United Arab Emirates, a beautiful generous young country, harboring a synergy of different types of people in a multinational atmosphere whereby 79.7 % of the residents consist of expatriates was an inspiring experience for me. In that sense the UAE represented a small world of all sorts of ethnicities and I felt the urge to create an event where by residents from different walks of life locally residing in the UAE will participate in expressing themselves through their proud heritage and culture.

The world of tomorrow belongs to those that believe in and hold on to their dreams. I dream of a peaceful world where we get the chance to pull little tiny hands to the light again. There is so much good in people, they don’t seize to surprise me. Together; in one powerful hand; we can learn from one another and manage to positively change the world. Nobody can do everything, but everyone can do something.

A little kindness can go a long way when peoples’ hearts and minds are in the right place and their actions are pursuing their aims. Let us together try to make a difference in the lives of the children in every other country worldwide.

’We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.’
