AISHA SAEED HARIB

Head of Cor­po­rate So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity at Com­mu­nity Devel­op­ment Au­thor­ity, Gen­eral Co­or­di­na­tor for the Na­tional Ser­vice Youth Coun­cil in the Min­istry of Youth and Sol­dier in the Na­tional Ser­vice Au­thor­ity Armed Forces

Giv­ing back to the com­mu­nity is a mantra that Aisha Saeed Harib lives by. “My full-time job is as a cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity man­ager where I cre­ate pack­ages for the pri­vate sec­tor to help them give back to the com­mu­nity and the less for­tu­nate. I also work with H.E. Shamma Bint Suhail Al Mazrui, the Min­is­ter of Youth, as I run the Na­tional Youth Ser­vice Coun­cil and I re­cently grad­u­ated as a sol­dier from the Na­tional Ser­vice Au­thor­ity.”

Aisha be­gan help­ing oth­ers in 2011 when she es­tab­lished her first NGO – So­cial Bandage. “It was de­signed to cre­ate so­cial cam­paigns and cre­ate op­por­tu­ni­ties for youth to in­vest their free time in. My first cam­paign was called ‘Give A Wheel­chair’ where I sold T-shirts to raise money to buy elec­tronic wheel­chairs. We raised enough to buy 800.” Of her roles, Aisha says: “I’m very pas­sion­ate about phi­lan­thropy and help­ing oth­ers is my ca­reer ob­jec­tive.”
