The First Arab Female Expedition to the North Pole is made possible through the generous support of Elham's sponsors and supporting partners.

Elham is proud and grateful to be supported by corporations that not only are pillars of the UAE's economic development but that also compete and distinguish themselves regionally and internationally. More importantly, these corporations underpin the development of human capital nationally and regionally, while also maintaining a strong sense of social responsibility. This commitment to the local community is very much in line with the ethos of this expedition..
