PEOPLE SMILE in THE SAME LANGUAGE ; HAPPINESS IS NOT DIVIDED BY CASTE, CULTURE OR COLOR but united by gratitude
Our very first project aimed at getting over 100 laborers from across Dubai for a weekend experience of their lifetime. They got a chance to visit 'At The Top' Burj Khalifa followed by a buffet lunch at 'The Walk' JBR. The day ended with a private movie screening at VOX.
The project was carried in Dubai and had 100+ laborers from different job fields, from construction to cleaning were offered a weekend experience they never would have dreamt of.
The event was held on 5th Feb, 2016 and was duly supported by various volunteers throughout the day. The project was privately funded without any corporate sponsorship. 'Pilot' is one of the many upcoming events that have been tailored towards the mission of the project.
The 'Pilot' was designed aiming to capture the lively spirits of this working class that is the true reason behind the countries success and growth. The support from all the entities involved was overwhelming and truly celebrated the spirit of the city. The project was the perfect kick start to goal PMP seeks to achieve.
Living at the world's happiest Arab Nation well quoted by UN; we thought of spreading some joy with our very own bag of happiness. We moved around the city asking people, what really makes them happy and also distributing thousands of stress balls and flowers.
The purpose of this event was to bring a few odd moment of happiness into people's life and making them stop and realize how small silly things have such a big impact on our very own lives.

A change for anyone & everyone around the city to gift their loved ones a free Bag Of Happiness filled with goodies and a true sense of happiness.
The free deliveries were supported by a courier company based in Dubai. More than 500 bags were gifted across the city to friends & family through the web-based application form; also helping users add their own personal message to every bag together with videos & images. The idea of the event was to help people cheer up their loved ones making their day special and a memorable one.
In this holy month of Ramadan, we took a bunch of hard working and highly enthusiastic laborers for iftaar. With the joy of the occasion, the team tried to brighten their evening with games and spot prices.
Few laborers sang their favorite songs while some were busy with their selfie sticks trying to capture the perfect smile.
Ramadan is a festival of kindness and prosperity, a month in which people do not see gains within, but serve selflessness for the greater good of others.
BAG OF HAPPINESS
Diwali 2016, we celebrated the festival of lights with a few camps, a home to around 2,000 laborers across the area. The camps were lit up with lights & decorations to give the laborers a homely experience of the festival.
The idea of the event was to give a movement true happiness on the faces of these laborers after a long stressful day at work. With boxes of sweets and new clothes, the event was bagged with many games & exciting gifts to their surprise.
The UAE’s President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan has declared 2017 as the Year of Giving throughout the nation. Project PEN ( Peace, Education & Neutrality ) is driven towards the UAE's social - intent of the year 2017 - 'The Year of Giving'.
Eyeing the idea of happiness, we believe that happiness is shaped by 2 things; the attitude & gratitude in one’s life. One, having a optimistic mindset, the way we react to various situations in life no matter how difficult they may seem to be .Secondly, the notion of being grateful for the little things in life and paying that forward to those who need them the most. Project PEN backs the same concept & belief of giving back to those who need it the most in however small or big way possible.

The time of Christmas is always a festive one & we thought of celebrating 2017 with kids from Senses Dubai - a day care center for kids with special needs based in Dubai made under the order of HH Shk Mohammed.
We tried to create the festive vibe of Christmas not only through games & gifts but also with our very own Santa and a Christmas tree setup especially for them. To bring some light to the event, we also had a local hula-hoop talent showcasing her skills in front of the kind souls. To wrap up the lovely experience, we also got the kids a cheat lunch of their favorite fast food items for an occasional delight.
Life on this Earth has been blossoming in its colorful forms, and humans have emerged on top of the pyramid scale. But as we progress up the ladder, so did the resources we have been extracting from Earth. Project Green in its small way, tries to celebrates the nature by having over 250 kids from across Dubai plant their own sapling every year in celebration towards World Earth Day.
Though maybe little as it seems in reversing what has been done, the initiative aims to instill in young minds what could still be achieved. Because in PMP we believe that even small hands can change the world. 💕
