Helping communities transform themselves

We do not define people by their problems, but by their potential.  That’s why we invest in training, job creation, and businesses aimed at helping communities transform themselves.  It’s also why we support and showcase art and artists to inspire and nurture people worldwide.

Pioneering positive change in the communities we serve – and far beyond.

Established in 2003, Community Jameel is a social enterprise organisation that operates a wide range of initiatives which promote and contribute towards positive societal change and economic sustainability.  From our headquarters in Saudi Arabia, we coordinate programmes focusing on the social, cultural, educational, and economic development of individuals and communities in the Middle East region and beyond.  

These projects are developed with real people and with the same care that we would apply to our own families rather than considering anonymous and impersonal statistics.  To do this, we focus our work on upstream solutions, not just downstream problems: we strive to prevent problems and effect change at the source.

We celebrate the men and women who, with our help, transform their lives and their communities, rather than celebrating our own achievements.


We give people the power to improve their lives and the lives of those around them.


We aspire to give everybody the chance to help to build a better world.
