Al-Khair Foundation for Social Development has set its sights on the young men and women from the first day.
The concerned persons in the Foundation, in cooperation with the competent authorities, design packages of theoretical and practical training programs in order to support and develop youth, and create new job opportunities for them, opportunities that enable them to become independent and able to depend on themselves with the knowledge and experience they possess.

The education sector is the top priority at in the foundation. Educating girls, sponsoring orphan students, and integrating marginalized groups into the educational process in particular have the most attention.

The youth are our best bet, and hope is always there. Hope will not be lost, as long as the youth are still dreaming and have the desire and determination to realize their dreams.

What People Say About Us

An honest statement about a wonderful and fruitful humanitarian effort. More than ten years ago, I attended a ceremony where graduates from various governorates of Yemen received their certificates from Al-Khair Foundation, and it was an impressive event.

Mr. Abdul-Ghani Abdulkader - Hungary

Greetings to the dear Mr. / Alwan Saeed Al-Shaibani and an honorary praise in recognition of his fairness, as usual, with everyone!

Dr. Abdulkader Al-Bena - Germany

Mr. Alwan Saeed, a man of generous benevolence, works without propaganda and advertisement, but with patience, perseverance, persistence and calm. Suddenly, you see what he accomplishes in front of you grand and gigantic. How and when it began and with such speed, the answer is because it is an act planned by this genuine and thoughtful man. As he said in his speech today, 74% of his charitable work is directed at education at all levels. That is, youth aspiring to build a better future and life without discrimination from any region or territory or otherwise. For such businesspersons, the hats are raised with respect, reverence and blessing.

Colonel / Pilot Qasim Al-Shaibani

Greetings to Mr. Alwan Saeed Al-Shaibani from the depths of my heart for his interest in education because it is the most important field for nation building, which was his dream in which he fulfilled through his commitment and his diligence.

Mr. Mohammed Rashid Al-Shayef - Sana'a

I hope that our modest contribution to support those studying will provide them with something to strengthen them and to stand by them in doing charitable deeds.

Dr. Saleh Abu Bakr - Hadramout

Mr. Alwan Saeed Al Shaibani is one of the few rare people who deserve the status of the "perfect human"!

Mr. Hassan Shoukry - Cairo

The attendees - at the event “A Decade of Goodness” - and I were astonished at the amount of charitable presented by Al-Khair Foundation in ten years. An unlimited amount of charitable work, worth millions of dollars, without harm nor boast, which included various sectors, foremost of which is education. It also included all social groups, foremost among whom is the marginalized group, and all governorates of the Republic of Yemen, especially the deprived or forgotten governorates. I am writing this after attending today’s event: A Decade of Goodness, organized by Al-Khair Foundation at the Shahran Hotel in the capital, Sana'a, which was the first event organized by the Foundation after ten years of working seriously and silently in the field. The organizers did well. Were it not for this event and the data, numbers and names it provided that are beyond doubt, many would not have realized the value and importance of the role that Al-Khair plays in various fields. Greetings and appreciation to the team of Al-Khair Foundation and its director, Engineer / Sadiq Al-Jumai. I would also like to extend my thanks, gratitude and recognition to the Chairman of the Board of Trustees, the philanthropist, Mr. Alwan Al-Shaibani, who has already proven that goodness is engraved in him and not something he claims!

Dr. Yassin Al-Shaibani

One of our national symbols, Alsadeeq Yahya Al-Arashi, talked about this man's dream, in a speech he gave in improvisation, at the end of today’s ceremony, which motivated me to write these lines. It was a ceremony bidding farewell to previous students and receiving new ones benefiting from the education program), which is financed by Al-Khair Foundation For Social Development, affiliated to Al-Alamiah Group. In brief words, Alsadeeq Yahya Al-Arashi touched the root of this foundation, and the project of its owner, which did not exist, except in his mind and dreams, when he began his adventure in self-employment. The man quit his job at the airline to try his luck in self-employment. When Alsadeeq Al-Arashi, whom he had met in the early 1970s, asked him: Why did you quit your job? He replied: I want to practice self-employment, hoping to get money that I can direct towards charitable work. This was the root of Al-Khair Foundation: an idea in the mind of its owner, the determination to achieve it and a conscience full of love for the country and its children.
