Investor Relations - GEMS Education

In 1959, two teachers, KS Varkey and his wife Mariamma, arrived in Dubai.

At the time, Dubai was a burgeoning trade centre on the Arabian Gulf. The Varkey family had left Kerala, India to seek a better life for their family. What they found was a real need to educate children arriving in the city from around the world.

Their son, Sunny, added a visionary’s ambition to a practitioner's experience. From simple roots in a family of teachers, GEMS Education, is today an international company with schools and education services in UAE, Qatar, Saudi Arabia & Egypt, making it the oldest, most well-regarded choice for quality private education in the Middle East and North Africa.

We still share the same mission - to provide a quality education to everyone.
