The significance of child development and their exposure to the world is the evergreen topic of global discussions. Where organizations like UNICEF can’t reach each and one, noble initiatives like Al Rashid Education Foundation (AREF) come in the limelight for their impeccable work.
While tracing back its foundation to the year 2013, AREF makes an optimistic contribution into the lives of Muslim students, who are continuing their studies in Canada and around the world. AREF encourages the Muslim students to enhance their artistic, athletic, educational and leadership potentials and the organisation accomplish this decree by providing scholarship funds to the student applicants who aspire to continue their post-secondary education. This scholarship is also rewarded to those students, who demonstrate excellence in the fields of academic and community along with leadership.
The foundation has also got the support of His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Bin Dalmook Juma Al Maktoum, who likes to bring a change to the society and make the world a perfect place to live in. His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Bin Dalmook Al Maktoum not only wants to change society via education but also wishes to utilise environment friendly approaches for the betterment of mankind. He has taken initiatives to utilize renewable resources instead of perishable resources and bearing that in mind, His Highness looks after the overall strategies for Africa Middle East Resources Investments, also known as AMERI Group, which is a developer at its core and also have some interests in investments, as it co-owns and operates power plants and energy-infrastructure projects in different dimensions of the world.
Coming back to Al Rashid Education Foundation, the initiative is funded through the generous contributions of community leaders who put emphasis on quality education along with producing successful and highly motivated Muslim leaders. These leaders want the future leaders to contribute in the development and growth of Muslims within the Canadian society and around the world.
