Majed Ali Al Mansouri, executive director of Emirates Falconers Club, lauded the students and programme, stressing how it is helping promote ancient Arabian culture and traditions to the younger generation: “Thankfully today we witness the graduation of the first group of girls who do not speak Arabic, and this is a great achievement and it affirms the reality of the United Arab Emirates as a nation that ranks first in the world for peaceful co-existence among different people and achieves the slogan of the Emirati falconers of ‘One World…One Heritage…One Spirit.”
