Noor Dubai Initiative was launched in September 2008 by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, Ruler of Dubai with a vision of a world free from preventable forms of blindness.

Following the success of reaching out to over 5 million individuals during its first year, a decree law was passed by the Ruler of Dubai transforming Noor Dubai from an initiative into a non-government/non-profit entity with the full legal capacity and independence required to carry out all its tasks and achieve its targets.
