Awqaf and Minors Affairs Foundation (AMAF) was established by the issue of law No. 6 in 2004 by His Highness the late Sheikh Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum. With the expansion of the institution in its work and functions, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai issued law No. 9 in 2007 strengthening the work of the institution. 

AMAF oversees the welfare of nearly 2,400 minor children through the development of ‘waqf’ (trust funds) that provide for their support and the care of their affairs, according to Shari’a principles through a well-structured long-term plan, conscious vision and insight.
