Princess Haya Initiative for the Development of Health, Physical Education & School Sports
With the support of HRH Princess Haya, the Special Initiative Project (SIP) was launched in 2006 to present a new physical education concept to teachers, students, parents and school administrations. The goal was to encourage children of all ages to participate in sports and adopt healthy lifestyles. Starting with just 11 schools, the initiative has expanded to include all public schools across the Emirate of Dubai. HRH Princess Haya is President of the Princess Haya Initiative for the Development of Health, Physical Education.
Retraining of Racehorses
Retraining of Racehorses (RoR) was founded in 2000 as British Horseracing’s official charity for the welfare of horses which have retired from racing. It raises funds from within racing to provide and maintain facilities for the care, retraining and re-homing of former racehorses and to promote awareness of the suitability of the retrained racehorse for other equine careers. RoR also promotes the adaptability of racehorses to other equestrian activities and has a well-established program of competition sponsorship. In addition, RoR holds clinics across the country to help owners look after and train their former racehorses. In 2009, Princess Haya became RoR’s first Patron. www.ror.org.uk
