Dubai, UAE – January 31, 2016 – A group of students from Canadian University of Dubai (CAD) have created an app named Efhamni – an Arabic word meaning “Understand Me” that helps connect deaf and hearing people by teaching Emirati sign language.

Sulaf Saleh Al-Zu'bi, CEO of INJAZ UAE commented: “The innovative thinking behind the creation of this remarkable app reaffirms our belief in the limitless potential of youth in the UAE. We look forward to witnessing the positive impact this app will have on society, carrying a message of innovation and inclusion.”

The development of the app was part of the “Ripples of Happiness” Program, a 6-week university outreach program created by the Coca-Cola Foundation and INJAZ Al-Arab. Its aim is to foster social responsibility, entrepreneurial skills, financial literacy, and workplace readiness among students. The team of students was supported by a group of mentors including CSR representatives from du Sveccha Kumar and Youshey Zakiuddin.

The official launch event for the application was held on Tuesday 26th January at Canadian University Dubai, where friends and family joined the students to celebrate their success.
