The National Archives’ latest lecture is inspired by the Year of Giving
 
In the context of its present program "For a Promising Generation”, the National Archives organized a new lecture. It drew on the Year of Giving 2017, the UAE remarkable achievements, pioneering regional and international role, and international humanitarian aid initiatives in the past decades. The lecture aimed at promoting the state's policies and methodology in the field of charitable and humanitarian work. Furthermore, it sought to assure its audience that giving is a continuous process that is not limited to one year.
The lecture threw light on the influential role played by the United Arab Emirates in the international community by which it has been characterized since its formation. This wise humanitarian policy, the foundation of which was originally laid down by the founding leader the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, and built upon by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, has become a permanent pillar of the UAE's foreign policy. In fact, it earned the UAE its well-deserved place in the sphere of international humanitarian work. Consequently, the UAE became a symbol of giving and a role model worthy of emulation, appreciation and respect at the regional and international levels for its solidarity with and compassion for different peoples in times of adversity and crises.

Since the National Archives is keen to build a generation capable of assuming responsibility, achieving good citizenship, and strengthening the spirit of solidarity, it has advocated Sheikh Zayed's values and passion for charitable and humanitarian work as good examples to be followed by society at large. Sheikh Zayed’s good deeds enabled him to please his people and spread the concept of benevolence throughout the country. As a role model, he instilled kindness and generosity in his people’s hearts, encouraging them to give a helping hand to those in need in various parts of the world.

Like all other lectures organized by the NA Educational Programs Section, this lecture, which highlighted the role of the UAE wise leadership in the various humanitarian and community projects, contributes to the promotion of national values, civic spirit and the sense of belonging among the members of the society. Moreover, it urges them to defend their country and safeguard their past and present, especially that it is inspired by Sheikh Zayed's insights, words and deeds, which have become a catalyst for giving and helping the needy.
It is worth mentioning that the humanitarian aid initiatives launched by the UAE in the past decades at various levels are countless. Such initiatives have been instrumental in alleviating human misery and suffering everywhere.
The lecture focused on social responsibility with its accompanying charitable, voluntary and humanitarian campaigns. It encouraged proactive voluntary work, which makes significant contributions to nurturing the social culture and to gearing up young people to serve and protect our nation.
The National Archives will soon put this lecture into practice in conjunction with government agencies, and it welcomes any requests by interested parties from various sections of society to organize workshops and lectures in this regard in coordination with the Educational Programs Section.
