Our Sponsor - A Friend, Philosopher and Guide

Ali Judian Al Rashidi, our dignified sponsor, is one of the most sincere men who has devoted his time and energy in his service to education. Born in February 1965, Mr. Rashidi showed interest in science and education throughout his life.

Though he hails from the family of businessmen, his passion for serving the younger generation urged him to open a number of schools in different parts of Kuwait. Al Jaber Local School for children with special needs, Al Jaber School for Paramedics, Indian Educational School, Jleeb Al Shyouk, and Jack and Jill Nursery School, Al Mangaf are the prime institutions that he established to lead the tender budding kids to the world of knowledge. His contribution in the field of education continues, and it will reach its culmination when his wish to establish a private university in the near future (if Allah wills) is materialised. His love for his country and his countrymen is sincere and deep-rooted. His contribution in the field of education is well appreciated as his service to his homeland.
