The proceeds of Ataya 2016 were used to construct six schools in Afghanistan, Egypt, Yemen, India, Mauritania and Philippines, respectively. The objective was to both assist and help improve the lives of children by educating them – so that in the future, they become productive members of their community and in turn, of their country, as well.
