Roman Troedhandl, Managing Director, Canon Central and North Africa,
said: "Access to education in Africa has many challenges, and today
sub-Saharan Africa has the highest rates of education exclusion in the
world according to the United Nations. Initiatives like Canon Day of
Giving guarantee that we can make a measurable difference to the
communities that need education systems in place, as well as make more
children in Africa happy and optimistic about their future."

In Africa, the funds raised will support an Enhanced Early Years
Pre-Service Teacher Training programme in Ghana for the duration of
three years. The programme will upgrade existing kindergarten classrooms
through training and learning resources to support the teachers and
deliver higher quality, fact-based learning in the classroom.

Tariq Al Gurg, Chief Executive Officer at Dubai Cares said: "We are
happy to once again partner with Canon Middle East and build on our
collaboration in an effort to provide children and young people access
to quality education in developing countries. We value their efforts to
launch a campaign and not only open it up to their stakeholders, but
also to the wider community. We look forward to a high turnout from
individuals, groups and families who will be contributing to raising
funds for Dubai Cares."
