Volunteer ‘Heroes’ sharing their passion for sport and fitness, and inspiring others to get active


National Health Insurance Company – Daman

Problem to solve:

Develop a volunteer-led brand awareness program which promotes active lifestyles to citizens and residents.


Find a core group of people with a passion for a sport or physical activity. Give them the tools and support to help train others – through both virtual and in-person sessions.


Daman Heroes is an online ‘movement’ inspiring the community to keep physically active together. It consists of ‘Heroes’ – UAE citizen and resident volunteers – who lead YouTube video workouts, and through them share their love for physical activity with people across the country.

The variety of sessions has ranged from Zumba and HIIT to functional training and circuits. In 2022, physical sessions were reintroduced for the first time since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

Interact designed and leads the Daman Heroes program, working with Daman’s branding, events, marketing, communications and media functions.
