Smile Train has transformed the lives of more than 1.5 million children by giving them the power of a smile.
Alturki Holding supported the establishment of Prince Saud Bin Naif Park, which was designed to be a place of inspiration, providing an atmosphere of serenity and tranquility. Beauty, however, is not all that visitors enjoy when visiting the Park. As visitors wander between the lanes, they experience a breath-taking journey full of knowledge. While they read the various scripts that showcase Arabic calligraphy at its best and enjoy the beautiful architecture, the Park inspires them to connect to the grand Muslim civilization and re-live its heritage.
The Park was designed to cater to everyone regardless of gender, age, and cultural backgrounds, indulging their minds, bodies, and souls. Moreover, the Park was designed specifically for full accessibility for the differently-abled. It breaks away from traditional design to facilitate education and learning while promoting individual and collective initiatives built on nurturing a culture of development and sustainability.
We wanted the Park to be a beacon of learning and knowledge, where visitors can acquire new skills and universal human values to help them become a positive force in their communities.
