2015 - 2020
BUILDING A STRONGER TOMORROW
Through our data-driven and evidence-based approach to strategic philanthropy, we continue to deliver a more sustainable form of giving,
which is wider in reach and has a long-term impact.
When my father, Abdulla Al Ghurair, started his philanthropic journey more than 30 years ago, it was based on a genuine, heartfelt concern for the livelihoods of the marginalized and underserved in our extended community.
Over time, as a family, we have transformed this form of discreet giving taking a more strategic approach. Our vision is to ensure that young Emirati and Arab men and women have a chance at a better life through high-quality education.
In 2015, we committed to go beyond a charitable approach to giving, in a more institutionalized and impactful way establishing the Abdulla Al Ghurair Foundation.

Chief Executive Officer, Abdulla Al Ghurair Foundation
We are dedicated to the realization of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 4, 8, and 17, which call for inclusive and equitable quality education that leads to improved standards of living, through strategic partnerships.
On behalf of the Abdulla Al Ghurair Foundation, I am pleased to present our impact report for the first five years.
It comes at a significant moment in our journey as we embark on a strategic shift toward supporting learners and the education ecosystems in the UAE and the Arab region.
This impact report aims to capture the progress the Foundation has made between 2015 and 2020 and lays the groundwork for our future efforts so that we can build a stronger tomorrow.
