LuLu Hypermarket Qatar has contributed $4mn since 2017 to Education Above All Foundation’s (EAA) mission to support access to quality education for the most marginalised children and youth, it was announced on Sunday.

LuLu's contribution of $1mn a year to EAA projects are supporting the commitment to ensure that millions of the most marginalised and hardest to reach out of schoolchildren can enroll in quality primary education, according to a statement.

Dr Mohamed Althaf, director, Lulu Hypermarket Qatar, 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.”

EAA's Educate A Child and partners Unicef USA, Mercy Corps and Unesco are working to ensure the enrollment 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.

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.
