Princess Ameerah Al-Taweel is a Saudi Arabian princess and philanthropist. She supports a wide range of humanitarian interests in both Saudi Arabia and around the world. Princess Ameerah assumed the role of Vice Chairperson of Al-Waleed bin Talal Foundation, an international, non-profit organization dedicated to supporting programs and projects aimed at poverty alleviation, disaster relief, interfaith dialogue and women’s empowerment.
As chairperson of Kingdom Holding Company, Princess Ameerah travels extensively in an effort to better understand the most pressing challenges facing the world. In visiting NGOs and other aid and development organizations, she aims to improve and promote the image of Saudi women, implementing projects and conducting field service trips. She has visited more than seventy-one countries.
Her self-described approach to reform is one of “evolution, not revolution”.
“People take their voices to the streets when they are not heard by their governments. If we want stability in the region, we must build institutions of civil society so people can channel their demands through these institutions. If we want prosperity in the region we must invest in young people through encouraging enterprise.”
Princess Ameerah is a magna cum laude graduate of the University of New Haven with a degree in Business Administration. She also says she wants to be among the first women to drive on Saudi roads.
