Faizal is a UAE-based Indian entrepreneur and philanthropist. He is the founder and chairman of KEF Holdings — a diversified company known for establishing technologically integrated enterprises across multiple industries.


Faizal, along with his wife Shabana, founded the Faizal and Shabana Foundation in 2007 with the vision of ‘Giving to create impact’.

Faizal, also a leading provider of healthcare and integrated wellness services, says that while sustainability is an aspiration, responsible tourism is what results when people take responsibility as producers or consumers. He said: “It is about making better places for people to live in and better places for people to visit. We believe that by introducing sustainable programmes and positive interventions, we are providing building blocks for people and communities to be empowered and build their own positive future.”


“Our aim is to be a catalyst towards building a more equitable, positive, happier, and better tomorrow for all, for generations to come,” the official website of the Faizal and Shabana foundation reads.
