Supporting sports initiatives of Dubai Club for People of Determination
Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) and Dubai Club for People of Determination have signed an agreement to boost their joint efforts in support of people of determination. The step is part of RTA’s endeavours in response to the Dubai Government initiative (My Community, a City for Everyone).
Yousef Al Rida, CEO of RTA’s Corporate Administrative Support Services Sector; and Thani Juma Berregad, Chairman of Dubai Club for People of Determination and Chairman of the Organising Committee of Fazz’a International Championships for People of Determination, signed the agreement.
“This agreement is valid for three years and calls for RTA and Dubai Club for People of Determination to sponsor the 11th Fazz’a International Championships for People of Determination. It also provides for supporting the preparation of four athletes from this category for three years to groom them for competing in local and international events,” stated Al Rida.
“The agreement reflects the joint efforts, and social responsibility of the two parties and periodic meetings held to identify the best practices in this field. RTA pays special attention to people of determination, offers them customised services and exempts them from fees of many services,” he added.
“We are pleased to sign this agreement with RTA; one of the biggest supporters of people of determination for offering services tailored to the needs of this beloved category. This initiative is the first of its kind in offering direct support for preparing sports champions capable of achieving for the UAE,” said Berregad.
“Through this initiative, we will be making concerted efforts in sponsoring and sports marketing based on the principles of solidarity and equality; which will be of benefit to both parties. We thank RTA for this pioneering initiative and hope this cooperation to flourish,” he concluded.
