The vision of the Alexandria Trust is for an Arab region once again home to world class standards of education, recapturing the ancient traditions of Alexandria as a centre of learning, where teachers and students engage in vibrant debate and first-rate tuition and scholarship.

The Alexandria Trust is the vision of its founder, Egyptian businessman and philanthropist Salah Khalil. Salah formed the Trust in response to the unprecedented opportunities that now exist to improve life chances across the Arab world, to facilitate the development of a new generation of citizens across the region equipped to become active members of their societies.

The Trust is led by a board of trustees who share the belief that the key to any nation’s development – economically, culturally and politically – lies in an open and accessible education system.
