The Al Qasimi Foundation was established in 2009 to aid in the social, cultural, and economic development of Ras Al Khaimah, a northern emirate in the United Arab Emirates. Although education was the initial focus for the Foundation's research and capacity development initiatives, it is branching into other public policy areas as it matures including urban planning and public health.
