About EAA

Opening up a world of education

Children love to learn. If they are denied access to knowledge, we also deny them the opportunity to change their lives for the better.

Educate A Child programme continues to build support for its commitment to educate millions out of school children

Lulu Hypermarket Qatar has contributed USD$1 million (QAR 3.65 million) per year since 2017, to the Education Above All (EAA) Foundation to support its mission to transform millions of lives by improving access to education. The funds allocated to some Educate A Child (EAC) projects are supporting the commitment to ensure that millions of the most marginalised and hardest to reach out of school children can enrol in quality primary education.

Director of Lulu Hypermarket Qatar Dr. Mohamed Althaf said, “We are delighted to support Education Above All as a partner – and to reaffirm our pledge to good causes around the world. Like our company, EAA’s reach transcends geographic boundaries. Its work enhances the lives of children in the most marginalised communities around the world. We are proud to support them in their mission to transform lives through education.”

EAC and partners UNICEF USA, Mercy Corps and UNESCO are working to ensure the enrolment of more than 350,000 out of school children in Syria, Somalia and Iraq, respectively.  Children in these countries face barriers to education such as poverty, insecurity and conflict, shortage of teachers and gender discrimination.

Mrs. Leena Al-derham, Senior Education Specialist at EAA said: “Education Above All foundation thanks the Lulu Group International for its support. This donation will contribute to our mission of breaking down the barriers that prevent children accessing a quality primary education.  Such barriers include poverty, lack of infrastructure, cultural issues, conflict and challenging geographies”.

“Through Educate A Child and EAA’s other programmes, millions of children in more than 50 countries have been receiving an education where it was once impossible due to the often multiple and compounding barriers. Lulu’s generous support has helped us reach thousands more children who may not otherwise have been able to enrol in quality primary education”, she added.


"Humanity will not overcome the immense challenges we face unless we ensure that children get the quality education that equips them to play their part in the modern world." -- HH Sheikha Moza bint Nasser
