The initiative was launched by the UAE government with the support of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai. This initiative is implemented and supervised by the team of H.H. Lt. General Sheikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior, as part of the initiatives of the Behavioural Rewards Department at the Ministry of the Impossible.
