Social Accountability Policy

The General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowments is committed to disseminating religious culture based on the principles of moderation and forbearance and modeled on modern international concepts. In doing so, it seeks to keep pace with the present time requirements and changes and to contribute to sustainable economic development by means of various Waqf disbursement channels. The aim is to cater to the various needs of the community to achieve social justice among its members, establish symbiotic social relations between employees and their families and improve their social conditions. The GAIAE is also committed to providing a working environment that is free from any practices enticing any form of discrimination, including the employment or the support of employment of people under legal age or forced labour.

To achieve such goals, the GAIAE took the initiative of introducing the requirements of the social responsibility policy (SRP) in all fields of its intervention. It also encourages its clients like Hajj campaign operators and other suppliers to comply with the ethical standards as stipulated in the ISO SA 8000. In addition to communicating and implementing the SRP widely across all its departments, the GAIAE will also work on continuous improvement of the system related thereto, and periodically put it into use in conformity with the local and federal legislations as well as with the best international practices.
