Alleem Books promotes sustainable societal change through reading

Filed on November 7, 2020

Sharjah — Alleem Books is planning to launch a new knowledge charity initiative soon, where enthusiasts will be invited to share their experiences and expertise in the form of a research paper or book. The event is aligned with its belief that “to leave a legacy, one must do something worth writing or write something worth reading”.

Learning is a continuous, collaborative, positive and fulfilling process that can enrich and promote both one’s professional and personal lives, and Alleem Books affirms this by symbolising the power of books and encouraging reading among people of all ages through social engagement.

Allem Books, a subsidiary of the non-profit organisation Alleem Knowledge Center, was founded by Dr Rashid Alleem, a passionate writer, environmentalist, sought-after thought leader and internationally respected transformational leader.

For more than 20 years, it has published outstanding books of Dr Alleem and established a forum, “Alleem Books Club”, where members can discuss a recently-read book and then express their opinion, likes or dislikes. This offers an exchange of ideas and a healthy discussion on a wide range of issues outside the purview of selected titles.

Dr Alleem, who is a firm believer in the saying “today a reader, tomorrow a leader”, is ranked third among the 25 most influential CEOs in the GCC and considered one of the 100 most influential CEOs in the Middle East.

A dynamic leader, who has worked with prestigious governmental, semi-governmental and non-profit organisations, he is also recognised as the “Knowledge Ambassador of the UAE” by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and as the “Environmentalist of the Year 2012” by Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad, former prime minister of Malaysia.

Dr Alleem HAS earned a PhD from the University of Salford, in Manchester, UK. His list of accolades includes five honourary doctorates, as well as the title of honorary professor by the Academic College of Oxford, UK.

Under his leadership, the Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority received the Voluntary Cancellation Certificate for excellence in energy-saving and the reduction of CO2 emissions by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in 2017. He was also bestowed with ‘Friend of Singapore Sustainability Award 2017’ by the government of Singapore and became a member of the advisory board of the Singapore World Water Council.
