Union Properties’ facilities management (FM) company ServeU announced its support for ‘Paint Happiness’ launched by Emirates Foundation’s Takatof Programme, which aims to empower Emirati youth to engage in volunteering opportunities, promoting tolerance and appreciation for diversity across the nation.

Through its initiative, ServeU is committed to deploying its services to refurbish 11 social and cultural community clubs across the UAE during the Holy Month of Ramadan, in line with its mandate with the government’s Year of Tolerance vision.

ServeU technicians are offering mechanical, electrical, and plumbing, as well as carpeting services, alongside the supervision of volunteers working on planting over 330 Ghaf trees, landscaping, and repainting club exteriors, among other responsibilities.

Commenting on the programme, ServeU general manager, Gary Reader, said: “Our partnership with the Takatof program allows volunteers to both give back to society in several ways and learn new skills with the help of our technicians. We’re witnessing a high level of participation and engagement and that’s extremely encouraging.”

Adding to the conversation, Maytha Al Habsi, CEO of Emirates Foundation, said, “Our Ramadan campaign is a reflection of UAE’s vision to create new opportunities for our youth to widen their horizons. 

"We believe these will help unlock their highest potential and their sense of social responsibility. We’re happy to have partnered with ServeU to provide services and support to the volunteers.”
