The Word of HE Ali Salem Obaid Al Kaabi Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Family Development Foundation on the Web Portal of the FDF A New Dawn

The 10th of May 2006 will remain a milestone in the history of the Family Development Foundation. On that day, HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, may Allah save him, issued his supreme decision of establishing the Foundation to be at the service of the Emirati community and to keep up with the contemporary data and developments. Furthermore, to emphasize the support of our prudent and wise leadership to the Foundation, it became under the umbrella of the Crown Prince Court. To be honest, I've been honored with national responsibilities and tasks during my different stages of serving our beloved UAE for over than a quarter of a century. Nevertheless, the past years have added a lot to my expertise, contributed in enriching my experience in addition to enlightening me about the reality of the UAE society in general, and the Emirati women and their big hopes and ambitions in particular.What the "Mother of the Nation" HH Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, may Allah save her, has done is clear and evident. Her Highness has exerted her utmost efforts to achieve a better reality for women, so that they are able to face challenges and accomplish achievements.Thus, I cannot help but valuing and blessing the efforts of HH "Mother of the Nation", and encouraging my sisters and daughters hoping that they achieve their hopes that guarantee a bright future for them to be able to contribute in making the history of our nation.
