Project Goal

In the United Arab Emirates, and Sharjah Emirates in particular, human conditions are always a priority. The primary goal of H.H. Sheikh Sultan Al Qassimi, the Ruler of Sharjah, is human development. Accordingly, SLSDA has introduced one year ago the task of developing a system for the creation of labor standards, which will benefit the people and enhance their living standards.
Project Goals:
1) Identification of labor camps.
2) Analyze the living conditions inside the labor camps.
3) Segregate the well maintained from the not maintained labor camps.
4) Prepare daily inspection schedules of the labor camps.
5) Highlight the needs of the laborers (e.g., proximity to bus stops, parks, health facilities etc.).
