Noor Dubai Foundation

Noor Dubai Initiative was launched in September 2008 by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, Ruler of Dubai with a vision of a world free from preventable forms of blindness.

Following the success of reaching out to over 5 million individuals during its first year, a decree law was passed by the Ruler of Dubai transforming Noor Dubai from an initiative into a non-government/non-profit entity with the full legal capacity and independence required to carry out all its tasks and achieve its targets.
