At The Rumi Foundation we believe in the importance of identifying and nurturing talent in young people.
Since 2006 the Foundation has served as the channel for the Verjee family’s support of a portfolio of initiatives in the UK and further afield increasingly linked by a common thread. With a focus towards education, innovation and entrepreneurship, we seek to support individuals with the capacity to become future leaders; and organisations capable of building a better future for us all.
“From my earliest years there have been many people generous in their support of me, who have given me a break, a first step onto the ladder; and believed in my capacity to realise dreams that I was passionate about. I have also always believed in giving back. It is the mantra I live my life by. I am proud of the tradition of charitable giving that runs deep in my family, proud of the work we have done together and proud of those organisations and individuals that we have been able to support. The Rumi Foundation is the natural continuation of this philosophy and our commitment to doing whatever we can to make our world a better place.”
Lord Rumi Verjee
