At ALHOSN we make sure that our wards receive world-class education and are sensitive to the conditions and needs of their respective communities. We believe that personal and professional development go hand-in-hand in molding a successful citizen,” said Prof. Abdul Rahim Sabouni, Vice Chancellor and CEO, ALHOSN University.
