E-game promoting children’s awareness on UAE history launched at MoI

ABU DHABI, — An innovative e-game dubbed ” Zayed The Leader” was officially launched by H.H. Lt. General Sheikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior, at the Ministry of Interior (MoI) premises on Tuesday to promote awareness among youngsters about the UAE history and its establishment at the hands of late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the founding father of the UAE.

The innovative game focusses on historic perspective of establishment of the UAE through shedding light on the legacy of the late Sheikh Zayed, his vision, determination and faith.

It is the brainchild of Emirati businessman, Obaid Sagheer Al Qubaisi, who has created it in support of the initiative “Express your love for UAE,” launched last June by H.H. Lt-General Sheikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

Al Qubaisi said that his contribution to developing and launching such a game is to express his deep love and loyalty to the UAE, its leadership and its founder the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, who had a long-term strategic foresight. The Khalifa Student Empowerment Programme (Aqdar) has been selected to market and promote the game as it is completely consistent with its national document for student awareness, Al Qubaisi added.

The game involves historical information about Sheikh Zayed’s deeds and the challenges he had faced along the path of building the country. The information is introduced in a very innovative and exciting way to attract the attention of students and young people.

H.H. Sheikh Saif presented the Appreciation Medal for Community Service to Al Qubaisi in recognition of his innovative initiative that instills more awareness among youngsters about the visionary strategy of the founding father.

Attending the launch were Under-Secretary of the Ministry of Interior Lt. General Saif Abdullah Al Sha’far and Major General Abdul Aziz Maktoum Al Shareefi, Director-General of Protective Security at the Ministry, along with a number of the ministry top executives.
