Voluntary work springs from the inner instincts of human beings to hold the greater common good dearer to his heart. It brings great benefits to the society as a whole. Moreover, it shapes the personality of the individual, making him an enterprising, effective and useful member of his society. The amount of voluntary work in a society is reflective of its real richness. It deepens human values and puts to good use the multiple capacities of the individual. Abu Dhabi Agriculture & Food Safety Authority aims to strengthen the spirit of voluntary work among its staff and encourage them to participate in efforts toward greater common good at all levels. It seeks to instill in everyone the preparedness to jump into social service and to place the collective good above individual gains. Abu Dhabi Agriculture & Food Safety Authority believes in investing in the human spirit. The idea of Auwn emanated from that thinking.
