Chairman’s Message


His Excellency Abdulhamid Mohammed Saeed Alahmadi


“Since its inception, Alef Education has played a pivotal role in advancing the UAE’s education landscape, delivering a significant, tangible, and positive impact for the students and education communities we serve. We take immense pride in our standing as a trusted partner of choice for both governments and education institutions, catering to their diverse and evolving education and learning requirements.

Our successful track record of growth, underpinned by the value we provide and the trust we have built with international governments, customers, and partners – including ADEK – has culminated in this milestone moment. With a robust governance framework, seasoned leadership team, and clear growth strategy, we firmly believe that Alef Education is ready to become a publicly listed company. We are not only offering investors the opportunity to participate in the growth of a company with a truly unique proposition – as the first-ever EdTech company to be listed in the UAE – but also one that is operating in a sector with considerable tailwinds, growth and value drivers.”
