Amina Hasan Mohammed Almemari is an Emirati philanthropist and a mother-of-four. For many years she worked for Takatof, the Program for Social Volunteering here in the emirates. There she launched charity projects like The Bazaar, where ladies in need can choose dresses they need for weddings or celebrations for free. Now, she works at the Ministry of Education where she helps students with their personal and professional development.

“If you want me to talk about Amina”, she says, “the first thing I will talk about is my family. My family is the best thing in my life. My children are my friends and my support. I raised my children in a way the country needs. If they’re good, it means they’re giving back to my country. My country gave me a lot.”
