We do so through leading and supporting many programs :
- Empowering Society through Be an ICON
We have created a community of individuals who are actively working on bettering themselves and on making a difference, a difference in their lives, in the lives of those around them, in their communities and in the world as a whole, one step at a time.
the premise is simple; We pay it forward. On the first Monday of every month we open our doors for all those interested to get together, have an inspirational talk, network, and connect. Its the rare chance for people to get together, learn get inspired and be motivated to give back to society. The community is growing daily and more and more people are inspired to become an icon.
- Supporting Reading and Learning through Abjad
Abjjad is considered the first Arabic social network for reading and cultural fans that allows readers, writers, and Arab bloggers to register and build a virtual library that allows them to share their writings, the books they are currently reading and what they are planning to read in the future.
Within the first month of Abjjad’s launch, more than 10,000 users registered; which ensured that that Arab readers needed a digital platform that allows them to connect and discuss books easily.
- Supporting Youth and Small enterprises through JeeranSME
JEERANSME is a non-profit business-mentoring community created to support the development and growth of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) operating in challenged economies of the Middle East and North Africa region (MENA).
It is led by an expert facilitation team based in Dubai, working in close partnership with governments, private sector organisations and NGOs across MENA who share their vision.
Through our programmes, we aim to bring a brighter future to the Arab world by supporting the creation of jobs, improving standards of living and decreasing poverty.
