“Throughout my career and from an early age, I have been fascinated by how individuals, governments and businesses can make the world a better place through focused and effective interventions,” Clare Woodcraft explains of how she found herself at the helm of Emirates Foundation. When Clare joined the Foundation, she was charged with overhauling it.
“My role was to transform the Foundation into a single-mission organisation supporting youth development in the UAE for young people aged 15-35.”
Whilst there are many things for Clare to be proud of from the past six years, the measurable impact the Foundation has had on the community is a particular highlight. “We know that we have impacted the lives of over 60,000 youth in the UAE, we have over 40,000 active volunteers in our volunteering programmes, we are creating new social entrepreneurs and have engaged with over 5,000 youth interested in science and technology.”
