Chairman's message

With the world becoming more interconnected through technology, global issues affecting one part of the world are likely to have ripple effects on another emphasizing the importance of a new breed of future leaders required to meet the global, social, political, and economic challenges. In shaping education for the future, merely imparting knowledge is insufficient. The focus should be on a borderless education - innovations and ideas that cut across traditional boundaries, new avenues to shape minds and develop characters. Education should not only enrich people’s understanding of their surroundings but also of themselves. We continue our mission of pioneering education in the MENA and Southeast Asia (MENASEA) region with a belief that our humble investment in human capital will have a great impact on the growth and development of the societies we operate in. We attempt to empower young minds to think outside the box and aspire to be leaders and visionaries, and young hearts to understand and appreciate morals and ethics of the society.

Al Najah Education, its management and employees, understand that their responsibilities are not only towards their investors but also towards students, parents, regulators and the society. Our focus is not just on creating the largest educational platform in the MENASEA region but also on the ethics, honesty, credibility and accountability needed to achieve that. As a new and growing organization, the Board of Directors and the employees continuously strive to integrate corporate social responsibility into the organization’s culture.

As our business evolves and we seek growth across borders, we continue to reinvest towards steady development of our education assets and procedures. From strengthening the workforce to improving asset infrastructure, from introducing technological advancements to complying with new policies and regulations, we aim to leave no stones unturned on our path to success.

It is exciting to be part of the global phenomena called education. From the first nursery rhyme of a baby to educating the young generation leading the world tomorrow, it is quite compelling to participate in the creation of our future. Through Al Najah, we provide our sagacious investors, an opportunity to reap returns of a non-cyclical defensive sector investment with a social conscience. Through creativity, hard work and diligence, we are essaying a past that will illuminate the future.

We would like to thank our shareholders, business partners and all stakeholders for their valuable trust and support. We also acknowledge the guidance and wise counsel of our Board Members. We will always strive to value your confidence by working even harder and continuing our commitment to grow your investments and deliver the returns we all aspire to achieve.
