In response to this call the College of Business Administration at Ajman University organized a series of activities participated in by students and faculty alike. These activities showcased the students’ concern for their community and awakened and inspired their civic consciousness. While the community reaped the benefits of their caring the students were also personally touched by the experience.
These projects included spending time and giving gifts to Orphans in the Emirates Sharjah and Ajman. They had activities to support the disabled and special needs people in the Emirates of Sharjah and Ajman. The delegates from the University spend time with children who are suffering from cancer.
