Shaikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Bangladesh Islamia School
Shaikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Bangladesh Islamia School, Abu Dhabi was founded on 23 August 1980 with the objective of imparting quality education to Bangladeshi community children. The infant institution of the 1980 has undergone a lot of uncertainties, hurdles and odds uncounted. Nevertheless, the only centre for the education of our community has finally been able to erect its head like that of a big banyan tree in a foreign land, far from Bangladesh, our dearest homeland.The selfless social workers of the community with the active co-operation of Bangladesh Embassy, Abu Dhabi managed to get the permission of Ministry of education and started holding classes in the afternoon with a handful of students from class I to V at Al Rashidiya Government School at Madina Zayed which later on shifted to Al Karama Street. The school kept running over there until 1990. His Highness Shaikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan noble founder & father of U.A.E, donated a land of 80,000 sq ft (7,400 m2). The present President of U.A.E. His Highness Shaikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan donated money for the construction of school building.
