Snoonu Partners With Education Above All For Charity Week

Oct 26, 2021 by SNOONU

This week, Snoonu will be participating in the International Charity Week, an annual international unity project that brings people together across the world to fundraise for orphans and children worldwide.


In partnership with Education Above All (EAA), Snoonu has activated a banner on their application where one Qatari riyal will be donated to EAA from each order made from participating merchants during the coming week. Additionally, users are also able to directly donate to EAA by visiting their shop on the Snoonu application, where individuals will be able to directly donate any amount they want.


Finally, EAA donation boxes have been placed around the Snoonu office to collect internal donations from the employees. These initiatives will all be ongoing until Oct. 30.


Founded by Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, EAA is an international foundation overseeing four core programmes, Educate A Child (EAC), Al Fakhoora, Protect Education in Insecurity and Conflict (PEIC) & Reach Out To Asia (ROTA). EAA’s core mission is to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education for vulnerable and marginalized people especially in the developing world.


Hamad Al-Hajri, Snoonu’s Co-founder and CEO, said “Education should be accessible to every child, no matter where they were born or who they were born to. International development and education on a global level affects all of us. This is what makes our partnership with EAA so essential. We also look forward to more partnerships with them in the near future”.


Snoonu is Qatar's home-grown success story that aims to be the first local Unicorn company. With over 150,000 users, Snoonu plans to expand and diversify its offering by adding new features and services to its platform, with a goal to enter international markets, including the Middle East and CIS.


After securing a $5 Million of investments during the Series A Funding round in April 2021, Snoonu plans to continue its growth and launch the Series B round in December 2021, with the goal to launch its IPO by 2024 and to further diversify its offer with payments and supply chain digitization solutions, transport, and global takeaway services.
