All these lectures were delivered by Mrs. Hind Al Zaabi who is specialized in educational programs at the Educational Programs Section at the NA. She ensured that participants gain both enjoyment and benefit, so she enriched these events with national stories inspired by the biography of the Founding Leader Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan and supported them with the directives by wise leadership for today’s students, the generations of future.
The NA’s participations were part of the summer camp events “Ya Zain Sayfana”, which was organized by the “Future Generation Library” of Mohammed Bin Khalid Al Nahyan Future Generation Society and part of the events of the Telecommunications and Digital Government Regulatory Authority camp.
 The events in which the NA participated have contributed to the spread of historical awareness among students, promoting the sense of original thinking and expression, encouraging research on the UAE history and protecting its landmarks.

Sheikha Dr. Shamma Bin Mohammed Bin Khalid Al Nahyan, given her belief in the effective role of the Society in building a positive national system.
