LE.O honored by the Takreem Foundation and received the International Contribution to Arab Society award.

Dear Friends,

It is with great pride that I write to you today to inform you that the Leonard Education Organization ( LE.O ) was honored last week by the noted Takreem Foundation, we received the International Contribution to Arab Society award.

Words do not express our appreciation for such an honor. Our special thanks go to the Takreem Foundation’s founder Ricardo Karam, a visionary who established the foundation to pay tribute to Arab individuals or organizations that have contributed to the development of their respective communities and to the betterment of the world in the fields culture, education, science, environmental studies, humanitarian services, and socio-economic development. His staff too are to be commended for their professionalism and seamless execution of the entire few days they cared for all of us.

Board members, Hadeil Abdlefattah and Diana Al Shaer joined me on the 26th October 2022 to attend the awards ceremony hosted at the Cultural Foundation Auditorium in Abu Dhabi. The extraordinary event was followed by a gala dinner hosted at the Rotana Saadiyat Hotel. Never have we been in a room filled with so many people dedicated to the betterment of humanity, it was extraordinary.
