Feeling lost and don't know what all of this is about?

"BELIEVE WHAT YOU SEE AND LAY ASIDE WHAT YOU HEAR" Arab Proverb


This proverb illustrates the concept behind our initiative. Our personal experience has allowed us to establish two simple findings :

  • Whether aside or far from their country of origin, many brilliant Arab figures are developing our world's dynamism in different areas. Most of them represent great role models and started from scratch
  • Concurrently, a part of the current Arab young generations is in need of references. Many children and students are very pessimistic when it comes to their future: They need outstanding role models to look up to and get inspired from.

This is why we decided to go meet and interview these personalities, regardless of their religion, the objective being to share their experience and broadcast it around the globe

With our little savings, we decided to quit our promising careers in Investment Banking and traveled more than 20 countries in 18 months, sleeping with locals and in cheap hostels but most of all conducted more than 45 interviews with the most inspiring Arabs worldwide! Our dream to inspire the Arab Youth is getting very close; 

WE NEED YOU NOW TO MAKE IT REAL!

Some of the interviews conducted or already planned: from left to right: RedOne (producer of Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga). Amin Maalouf (great Writer), Zaha Hadid (Nobel Prize of architecture), Omar Samra (youngest Arab astronaut and Everest climber), Jalloul Ayed (Banker and composer of classical symphonies), Nezha Bidouane (double world Champion 400m hurdles)


What We Need & What You Get
We raised more then $36,200 from private sponsors worldwide and now we need an additional $13,800 that will help complete and fund exclusively:

- Editing the interviews videos; 45 * $120 = $5,400

- Producing the Medium Length documentary: $5,100

- Completing the funding of 6 events and conferences in 2014 in schools for underprivileged children and universities across the Arab World, and a HOPE TOUR reaching 9 rural schools in remote areas: $3,300 

Interview conducted by Arab Excellence in Tunis with Jalloul Ayed: former Minister of Finance and great composer of classical symphonies


The Impact
We are getting these Arab Role Models involved in Arab Excellence and we are creating a platform to inspire the youth and make it want to succeed in life. Without inspiration and motivation, the young generations wont be able to spend long hours of hard work in order to achieve their goals. We plan to impact and inspire more than 3.5 millions people in 2014-2015 throughout the Arab World and around 2.3 millions young people (14-28 yo)

Through direct events and conferences: 12,500 people

Through our media partners: 2.8 millions people

Through internet and our social medias: 680,000 people

Event organized by Arab Excellence in a centre dedicated to kids of the street. We invited Nezha Bidouane: double world champion in 400m hurdles, inspired these kids and made them dream again.
