The EGG American School of Dubai (ASD) Chapter was founded in the Fall of 2015 by two high school students. Their mission is to create a safe and healthy learning environment for girls living in countries where they are deprived of a proper education, to hopefully give them more opportunities, support and enhancement in optimizing their future. The EGG chapter is supported by many students, school parents and a teacher who acts as an advisor for the school club.
The American School of Dubai is a college-preparatory, Pre-K through Grade 12, independent not-for-profit co-ed school that serves more than 1660 students. Although the student body is represented by over 55 nationalities, the majority of students come from North America. After-school programs and clubs give students the opportunity to be active, learn new skills, develop leadership and have fun. There is a wide choice of offerings from student government and Model United Nations to Girl Scouts and Thespians. This year, ASD opened up a new club to students with the launch of the Educate Girls Globally Chapter.

November 2015 – EGG also held a ‘hot chocolate sale’ fundraiser and sold 85 cups of hot chocolate for a profit.
