Founder's Message

In 1945, my father, the late Abdul Latif Jameel, founded “Abdul Latif Jameel” which began a tradition of charitable giving and community projects. To this day, Community Jameel Saudi extends its values and mission from his vision.

In 2021, we celebrate the 75th anniversary of the launch of "Abdul Latif Jameel" and its philanthropic endorsements.

This 75-year long journey of developmental projects and humanitarian initiatives helped strengthen the role of Community Jameel Saudi in advancing our society. These endeavours are embodied in our ambitious strategy to "Innovate for a Better Future" through five key pillars aimed at providing our youth with job opportunities,

which in turn contributes to enhancing community's welfare, and thus help maintaining our nation's economic growth.

We look forward to continuing our philanthropic journey to fulfil our values towards building a better future.

Our History

Since its establishment over 75 years ago, Abdul Latif Jameel has established various community initiatives and programmes. In 2003, all the initiatives were restructured under “Abdul Latif Jameel Community Service Programmes”.

2003 marked a new chapter for Abdul Latif Jameel’s successive journey, undertaking a specialist-led restructuring of its community development programmes and initiatives into a centralised unit, working towards one common goal: creating and providing job opportunities that lead to better lives and prosperous society. This culminated in the establishment of Community Jameel Saudi in 2010 as a non-governmental public service foundation aimed at stimulating community development through a wide array of initiatives, of which some evolved into independent thriving entities supporting and complementing our humanitarian mission to help empower and enrich our society.

Our efforts focused on catalysing job opportunities to Saudi young men and woman through full-fledged and integrated schemes such as Taxi and Truck Ownership programmes, technical skills development and training resulting in employment, as well as supporting productive families and small enterprises. In parallel, we launched several awareness campaigns to change prevailing concepts by promoting a culture of productivity and financial independence such as "There is no shame in working" and " I am proud of my job."

Some of our notable initiatives for supporting the community well-being pertains the founding of Al Nada Center for Social Care in Hail in 2005 and our contribution to establishing the King Salman Centre for Disability Research in 1992 in Riyadh and the Prisoners' Family Day initiative in 2004. In the field of education, Community Jameel Saudi helped launch "1001 Inventions' and actively contributed to establishing "Injaz Saudi Arabia"
