Volunteers change the lives of thousands of people every year. Find out how and why Takatof started and how we work to make a difference.

The Emirates Foundation for Youth Development

Takatof was established by The Emirates Foundation in 2007 to raise awareness of those in need in our communities and to empower and encourage young people to take part in voluntary work to help them.



We support the idea of volunteering as a way of life. We promote the benefits to the nation as a whole and work to encourage volunteering as part of UAE culture.



Takatof works to encourage and empower people to take part in voluntary service across the UAE.
Through our varied programmes we train, support and connect volunteers to deliver positive change and improve the quality of life within our communities.
