We support Reading and Learning through Abjad
Abjjad is considered the first Arabic social network for reading and cultural fans that allows readers, writers, and Arab bloggers to register and build a virtual library that allows them to share their writings, the books they are currently reading and what they are planning to read in the future.
Within the first month of Abjjad’s launch, more than 10,000 users registered; which ensured that that Arab readers needed a digital platform that allows them to connect and discuss books easily.
We Believe in Empowering Women – We do so by Supporting:
Arab Woman Platform
A motivational platform that believes in equality, empowerment and change. A bilingual Platform in both Arabic and English languages that aims to offer a true reflection of the inspirational, successful and respectful Arab women out there an image that is somewhat distorted in Western views.
