Astra Tech, a consumer technology group in the MENA region, has joined forces with the Authority of Social Contribution – Ma’an, the official platform of the Abu Dhabi Government for receiving social contributions, to introduce ‘CharityGPT’ on the Botim platform. This pioneering feature, a first in the region, utilizes GPT technology to enable Botim’s 9 million users to seamlessly support the “Together For Every Orphan” initiative, dedicated to enriching the lives of orphans and children without family care.

In the spirit of Ramadan’s generosity, Botim’s ‘CharityGPT’ empowers users to make meaningful contributions with simple text commands. This initiative builds upon Botim’s ongoing commitment to community welfare, complementing Astra Tech’s partnership with Emirates Red Crescent on various donation programs. These collaborative efforts underscore the company’s dedication to humanitarian causes, showcasing the transformative potential of technology in fostering large-scale philanthropy.

Abdallah Abu-Sheikh, Founder of Astra Tech and CEO of Botim, expressed pride in the collaboration with the Authority of Social Contribution – Ma’an, highlighting how CharityGPT exemplifies technology’s capacity for good, expanding philanthropic reach and positively impacting society. He emphasized the shift from concerns about AI-induced job loss to leveraging its capabilities for charitable endeavors, benefiting millions globally.

Since its establishment in 2019, the Social Contribution Authority – Ma’an has been pivotal in fostering partnerships between government, private sector, and civil society to drive social innovation, reinforcing Abu Dhabi’s global standing. Astra Tech’s integration of PayBy’s fintech features into Botim Ultra has facilitated successful charitable campaigns, underscoring the company’s steadfast commitment to community welfare and its vision of leveraging technology for societal good.

His Excellency Faisal AlHmoudi, Executive Director of the Social Investment Fund at the Authority of Social Contribution – Ma’an, emphasized the significance of partnering with Astra Tech for the ‘Together For Every Orphan’ campaign, marking the beginning of a series of collaborations utilizing Botim’s Ultra Platform. He highlighted the Authority’s commitment to addressing social priorities and fostering genuine social impact, aiming to create an engaged and collaborative community within Abu Dhabi.

The introduction of ‘CharityGPT’, especially during Ramadan, marks a notable convergence of technology and philanthropy. It underscores UAE-based tech organizations’ dedication to community service, demonstrating AI’s profound potential in facilitating acts of kindness and generosity. Through this innovative initiative, Astra Tech and Ma’an are not only streamlining the process of donations but also cultivating a culture of giving, supporting vulnerable individuals, and strengthening societal bonds.
