3,000 students to get free education

Gems Education (Global Education Management System), a division of the Varkey Group, a Dubai-based organisation, has announced the allocation of four per cent of its school seats, which is equivalent to 3,000 seats, as endowment for pupils who cannot afford tuition fees.

The group got the Dubai Awqaf and Endowment Sign from the Mohammad Bin Rashid Global Centre for Endowment Consultancy in recognition of its community contribution as an example to be followed by private organisations.
Sunny Varkey, Founder & Chairman of GEMS Education, said: "We are proud to support the community we serve in, and as a private entity, we look forward to strengthening our partnership in promoting the welfare of the community through various initiatives. The announcement of the global Awqaf and Endowment initiative by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, has offered a strong platform for the private sector to support the community effectively.
