Aside from his profit-making empire, Dr. Al-Jibouri has his own vision and goals toward improving and empowering the lives of others, as he has significant insight on how to build trouble-free and developed communities.
His vision sheds light on the importance of investing in innovational trends with a wide focus on youth empowerment, which is in other words known as ‘entrepreneurship’, and is mainly spread among the younger generation.
Coming from a country that has drastically suffered as a result of war and political conflicts, Dr. Al-Jibouri is determined to provide individuals – particularly youth – with everlasting hope; especially for people who have endured harsh lives due to wars and other epidemics.
One of his milestones is working on gathering a kaleidoscope of ideas, concepts and approaches to empower and build capability for people who are especially at a young age. Consequently, the Ahmed Al-Jibouri Foundation was established.

The foundation’s initial milestone is to deliver basic human development services, as well as enhance the evidence-base and innovation ecosystem.
This allows the fast assessment, funding and growing of open-source solutions that can improve peoples’ lives. The foundation supports individuals who show a capable team and a clear path towards improving our future.
