Under the National Policy for Empowering People with Special Needs, launched by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, people with special needs or disabilities are referred to as ‘People of Determination’ to recognise their achievements.
DEWA is committed to supporting the integration and empowerment of stakeholders in the work environment and society as a whole.
The ‘My Community… A City for Everyone’ initiative was launched by HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council of Dubai, to fully transform Dubai into a friendly city for People of Determination by 2020; thus, contributing to the achievement of the goals of Dubai Plan 2021 to make Dubai home to a cohesive, harmonious, and mutually supportive society.
DEWA won the People of Determination Friendly Government Entity award at the 21st Dubai Government Excellence Program in 2018. It is also listed on the list of government bodies that support the My Community…A Place for Everyone initiative. To find out more, click on the following link
