‘’ Mr. Fouad Habib ‘’
(40 years in serving the education process)

While we are talking about a big educational establishment in Egypt which is full of achievements, devotion and leadership, we also must talk about the 1st hand that laid the foundation stone in that great establishment, and the beginning of the dream that came true.

Dr. Fouad Habib

The dream holder was really an example we must follow in all times. The new generations have to learn from him that there’s no impossible as long as there’s ambition, strong will, determination to make it real and not remain just a dream in everyone’s imagination. He began his career life as an English teacher in one of the south Cairo schools in 1951 and due to his faith in the private education which has to be side by side to the formal education, he built a lot of establishments and "Abdeen School" was the first in 1951. · In 1954 he built "Abbassia Private School" for primary boys and girls. · In 1956 he built a preparatory school for boys and another one for girls then he bought the neighbored land to develop them and include the secondary stage. · In 1968 he built a school for girls with its three stages in El-Hegaz Square in Heliopolis, and in the same land next to the school. · In 1970 he built "Saint Fatima Language School" in El-Hegaz Square and before it there was "Saint Fatima School" in El Abbassia. · According to his hard work, he was welcomed by …………………………….. Mr. President / Gamal Abdel Naser with a bunch of his students to Abdeen Palace and he encouraged Mr. Fouad to keep up the good work and continue developing the educational process.

In 1979 Mr. President/ Mohamed Anwar el Sadat honored him as one of the leaders of education in Egypt. He also awarded him the Pioneers Medal on the Education Day. · When the policy of education in Egypt started giving due care and attention to Specific Education he started the first "Computers Institute" in 1985. · In 1986 he built the 1st Private "Hotels and Tourism School" in Egypt. . The light that used to shine the educational sky was taken off in October 1986 when the great teacher and leader Mr. Fouad Habib passed away after 40 years of giving and believing in his cause and in the statement which says:

“If u want others to light a candle u have to light it yourself 1st.”

. Although Mr. Fouad offered us a lot and achieved a lot in the field of education, he still had a lot of dreams that destiny didn’t allow him enough time to fulfill. His life wasn’t enough for him to achieve in the education cause all what he had dreamt of, but his soul is still out there following every achievement to bless it. May god rest the soul of the pioneer of education and the great symbol to the next generations ……………..
