Our purpose is to empower Emirati and Arab youth through education
so that they can thrive and contribute to the development of the region.
We work to cultivate sustainable innovative education solutions
through authentic partnerships.
Seeking an education is not only about personal achievement, it is our civic and religious responsibility as Arabs and Muslims.
I hope this foundation will help deserving young Arabs fulfill their education quest and that they in turn will help others.”
