Seawings Supports the Dhaka Project Polo Cup on April 16, 2010

April 14, 2010

DUBAI, UAE, April 14, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — On April 16th 2010, Seawings,
Dubai’s only seaplane tour operators, is extending their support to the Dhaka
project through the sponsorship of the Seawings Polo team captained by Lise
Stokes
. Seawings will be providing the prizes on the day for best player as
well as the best dressed woman and man. So come dressed to impress.

The Dhaka Project, in order to raise awareness and funding for the coming
year, is holding its first ever Polo Tournament: ‘The Dhaka Project Polo Cup
2010′. The tournament will be held on April 16th, 2010 from 1pm onwards at
the Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club at Arabian Ranches.

Families and children are invited to a casual, relaxed ‘picnic style’
afternoon to enjoy an exciting polo tournament and participate in raising
funds and awareness for a fantastic charity that strives to bring the slum
dwellers of Dhaka out of their cycle of poverty.

The tournament will kick off at 4 pm with a fun round of camel polo. Four
of the U.A.E.’s finest teams will compete for the Dhaka Project Trophy.

The Dhaka Project is a non-profit initiative that works to provide much
needed support to poor families and their children in Dhaka living in the
slums. It is a pure humanitarian effort that aims to provide training to the
adult members of families, to overcome poverty and become self-sufficient and
educate the children to give them opportunities in the future, and to give
short-term aid in terms of clothing, food and medical aid while the families
are learning.

In short, the objective is to bring new sources of income to some of
Bangladesh’s poorest people. The emphasis is placed on supporting sustainable
development, particularly with children. The Dhaka Project continues to
support the local economy by using local resources wherever possible. Maria
Conceicao
, the founding member, scoped the project out in April 2005 and it
was officially launched in July 2005. Since this time she has been joined by
a dedicated locally employed team along with volunteers from Bangladesh and
the world over, who share her passion and belief for this cause. They have
received invaluable, consistent support from the Emirates Airlines
Foundation, without whom, the charity would not be where it is now.

“The Dhaka Project Polo Cup 2010″ will bring sponsors and charitable
people together for a day of exciting polo action. Over 1,500 people are
expected to participate in this fun-filled day and all the money raised on
the day will make a huge difference in the ambitions of The Dhaka Project to
ensure the short-term goals are achieved and the long-term objective of the
charity being self-sustainable becomes more of a reality.

The polo tournament will be held at The Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club,
which was established in 2005 and is located at the Arabian Ranches, 12km
outside Dubai.
