We support the Community!

Non-Uniform Day
The first Sunday of each month is designated EAHM’s Non-Uniform Day. On this day students and staff are not required to wear the academy uniform. Anyone choosing to wear casual clothes is required to make a donation of AED 10 to our charity, Dubai Autism Centre, during class time. One hundred percent of the funds collected are donated to the selected charity organization; no administrative cost incur. The Student Council communicates information concerning the upcoming Non-Uniform Day on a regular basis to the students.

Donation Drive
One or two times a year a blood donation drive is organized. All EAHM staff, faculty and students comes together with the staff from the Jumeirah properties to help save lives around the country. More information will be provided by the Student Council throughout the trimesters.

Clothes Donation Box
At EAHM the students and staff take part in helping the community in any way they can.
