Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) will sponsor and empower the Olympic athlete Aisha Al Mutaiwee, who won four Gold medals in the Para Powerlifting Asia-Oceania Open Championships.
The move is part of an agreement with the Dubai Club for People of Determination, to support and empower the People of Determination in sports.
It stems from the keenness of both parties to promote their strategic cooperation, integrate their efforts and exchange experiences.
The agreement aims to provide moral and physical resources to empower and promote the skills of people of determination. It seeks to open the door for their participation in local and international events as well as external training camps and provide them with the technical support needed to lead them to obtain top honours.
Yousef Al Redha, CEO of Corporate Administrative Support Services Sector, RTA said, “RTA is keen to support the People of Determination in line with its strategic goals and objectives which provide for the happiness of people and social responsibility.
Accordingly, RTA signed an agreement to support people of determination with the Dubai Club for People of Determination in 2019 to support them in the sports field and enable them to excel in local and international championships.
“Through this agreement, RTA aims to raise the public awareness about the importance of empowering People of Determination such that they can have a real contribution to the community.
“RTA is keen to launch effective community initiatives, such as supporting the player Aisha Al Mutaiwee in the sports field. RTA’s initiatives for various community members (youth, students, people of determination, girls and women) were launched after conducting studies that included the goals and the desired results. RTA also cares about following up on the results achieved and carrying out further improvements to reach the specific goals,” concluded Al Redha.
Thani Juma Berregad, Chairman of the Dubai Club for People of Determination praised RTA’s support and empowerment of people of determination in the sports field.
He paid tribute to RTA’s sponsorship of Aisha, which contributed to her winning four gold medals in the Para Powerlifting Asia-Oceania Open Championships.
