Focusing our efforts for maximum impact

Community Jameel is active worldwide, directly implementing programmes and collaborating with major international institutions and grassroots organisations.

Driven by our commitment to innovation, entrepreneurship, creativity, and youth, we work across six major fields of development: Livelihoods, Arts, Education, Health, Climate, and Evidence.

Livelihoods

Livelihoods

At Community Jameel, economic transformation is an integral part of many of our programmes. We support job-seekers, entrepreneurs and small business owners to achieve sustainable livelihoods and to grow.

With services ranging from recruitment and microfinance to a suite of digital tools, we provide advice and support for both individuals and businesses to thrive in the modern world.

Arts

We foster the role of the arts in building open, connected communities; at a time of flux and dramatic societal shifts, this role is understood as more crucial than ever.

We support artists and creative communities around the world through a broad range of initiatives from running heritage institutes and restoration programmes to a variety of arts and educational initiatives for all ages.

Arts
Education

Education

We aim to help provide access to quality education for those most in need, through innovations in pedagogy and technology, scholarships, mentorship, and education programmes around the world.

With a commitment to break down the barriers that hold back learning, we support teachers and students, entrepreneurs and musicians, providing platforms for individual growth and systems-wide transformation.

Health

The world faces pressing healthcare challenges: to control the spread of infectious diseases, to discover new drugs, to detect diseases sooner, to treat injuries and illness more efficiently.

We seek to harness the power of new technologies to transform healthcare for all. Using machine learning, robotics and data science, we support interventions to improve health outcomes globally, and with a focus on vulnerable populations.

Health
Climate

Climate

As climate change impacts our access to safe and plentiful water and food, Community Jameel is responding by strengthening food and water systems, especially in geographies and among populations facing the greatest threats.

We seek to apply innovative technologies to secure water and food for all, from seed funding early-stage research, to spinning out new solutions from the lab to the field.

Evidence

Any policy or programme that is designed to have a positive impact needs to be based on reliable evidence and should be rigorously evaluated. Because if we know what works, policymakers can ramp up effective programmes and achieve positive change at scale.

That is why Community Jameel supports evidence-based approaches to policymaking and decision-making in development.
