The third Twitter festival of Dubai in boom
In an effort to raise money for building schools and hiring teachers in developing countries, an event, being organized at the InterContinental hotel in Festival City, will bring together users of the social media service Twitter.
Being the third Twitter festival for Dubai, it is being held in more than 175 countries at the same time too.
Baher al Hakim, one of the event's organizers said, "It will help to build a special community and create stronger relationships between the people in it."
More than 300 people participated in the previous Dubai Twestival Global, held in February last year and helped to raise US$20,000 (Dh73,000) in donations to Charity: Water that utilized the sum to dig wells in Uganda, Ethiopia and India, providing villages with reliable water supplies.
The present festival will donate the raised sum to Concern, a 40-year-old US-based charity that provides education to children in the developing world.
Hundreds of cities will conduct the event and all the organizers for the event are volunteers.
