The Business Pledge-Setting Targets For Sustainable & Responsible Growth
Personal development through education was one of the values upheld by the founders of KPMG Bahrain. To uphold this value, the firm sponsored students in Bahrain to complete their education. Over time, the glaring lack of qualified professionals led to the idea of initiating a fund of KPMG Fakhro to sponsor students to fill this gap in the labour market. When Jassim Fakhro, one of the founders, passed away in 2001, KPMG Bahrain established the Jassim Fakhro Fund (JFF) to continue his vision and to uphold his legacy.
