Our commitment to local communities is in part due to the legacy created by our Founder, Sheikh Khalid Alturki. Sheikh Khalid is a member of several Boards of Trustees and Boards of Directors of numerous Arab and International educational institutions. Hailed as a prominent successful businessman, his true passion for illuminating the importance of education and human development was evident throughout his life. He delivered many lectures and participated in several Arab in international conferences and forums, advocating the importance of education and active citizenship. His beliefs and vision were translated through launching numerous initiatives that inspire individuals to reach their full potential, including the establishment of the Dhahran Ahliyyah Schools over which he presides.
As Sheikh Khalid grew Alturki across the years, he ensured that our commitment to local communities grows in unison. As a true champion of private-sector responsibility, he embedded empowering community causes as part of Alturki’s core mode of operation. Among the several topics, community needs, and focus areas Alturki led; Quality Education was always fundamental.
As an active corporate unit, we work hand in hand with members, partners, and organizations in our local community to identify needs and create relevant programs that have long-term resilience. We continue to identify ways in which we can grow our impact in existing focus areas and incorporate new areas as needed.
