Aisha Saeed Harib

Head of corporate social responsibility at Community Development Authority, General coordinator for the National Service Youth Council in the Ministry of Youth and soldier in the National Service Authority Armed Force

Giving back to the community is a mantra that Aisha Saeed Harib lives by. “My full-time job is as a corporate social responsibility manager where I create packages for the private sector to help them give back to the community and the less fortunate. I also work with H.E. Shamma Bint Suhail Al Mazrui, the Minister of Youth, as I run the National Youth Service Council and I recently graduated as a soldier from the National Service Authority.”

Aisha began helping others in 2011 when she established her first NGO – Social Bandage. “It was designed to create social campaigns and create opportunities for youth to invest their free time in. My first campaign was called ‘Give A Wheelchair’ where I sold T-shirts to raise money to buy electronic wheelchairs. We raised enough to buy 800.” Of her roles, Aisha says: “I’m very passionate about philanthropy and helping others is my career objective.”
