Maria Cristina Foundation (MCF)

The Maria Cristina Foundation (MCF) is a non-profit organisation that is based in Dubai. Founded by Maria Conceicao in 2005, the foundation has been effectively breaking the chains of inter-generation cycles of poverty through education in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

We believe education opens endless opportunities and we invite the children and adults to a whole new level of dreams being turned into reality one step at a time. We aim to provide them with the best education there is, so as to groom them to face the competitive world and truly help them achieve their dreams.

MCF currently supports 200 students who are enrolled in private schools and colleges in Dhaka, and over 50 adults studying under the MCF English program. We unburden them from hindrances to give them the freedom to study, by providing them with their daily needs such as transportation, food, accommodation, medical supplies, toiletries and hygiene supplies and rent for the family.


Roles Available in Dubai:

  • Admin
  • Online Communication
  • Finance/Accounting
  • Website Maintenance
  • Social Media/Digital Design
  • Creative Writing

100% of our funds go towards our cause, so we rely on the help of volunteers and donations. We are based in Dubai and welcome anyone with a valuable skill to contact us with suggestions of help.
