Our mission is to mobilize, motivate and empower people and communities for entrepreneurship, leadership, diversity & inclusion.
FOUNDER & CEO
The Fakih Foundation was founded by Mohamad Fakih, founder and CEO of Paramount Fine Foods. Growing up in civil unrest, he left Lebanon and built a better life in Canada with the help of people. Mohamad’s determination to uphold the values of giving back and continuing the cycle of generosity that was shown to him in life, led to the founding of the Fakih Foundation. Mohamad’s vision stems from the belief that the best way to respond faster to the challenges and calamities happening locally and internationally, is by empowering individuals, organizations, and other community stakeholders. A community leader, Mohamad is known for regularly participating in fundraisers and community events supporting multiple causes and charities. Through his experience as a serial entrepreneur, philanthropists, and active civic leader, he knows first hand that sustainable change can happen with the intersection of entrepreneurship, leadership, diversity & inclusion. Philanthropy has always been of utmost importance and a key part of Paramount’s culture, and now through the Fakih Foundation, Mohamad aspires to do more.
Partnerships & Impactful Collaboration
We believe in pushing boundaries to create quicker and better solutions that drive change through collaborative action with the private sector, entrepreneurship, governments, people, NGOs and organizations worldwide. It is through partnerships we can nurture resilient independent individuals and sustainable communities. Equipped with the right knowledge & education, we can accelerate breakthroughs and yield change for people today and generations to come.
The best way to empower people is giving them the ability to earn their income and support them in the form of mentorship to help them achieve those goals. Through entrepreneurship mentorship we give people the power to change their lives and of those around them.
More communities and individuals need to be mentored for leadership. Most people lack access to the best education in leadership. We hope to deliver quality information to equip individuals to create change.
Diversity & Inclusion
We drive better outcomes for individuals and communities by improving the differences and understanding amongst different ethnic group by sharing information & knowledge to promote a more diverse united community.
WHO WE HELP
We serve all people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender. Whether it’s helping immigrants, refugees, migrants and internally displaced people to females, or our local community members to youth and kids, we aim to be inclusive towards all human beings and communities.
No one alone can save the millions of people facing adversity. We must rise above the standard societal norms of individual activity and come together united, to take on some of the toughest challenges facing humanity today. We need you, your ideas, your expertise, your visions, and your solutions to benefit all societies and humanity.
