In 1959, two teachers, KS Varkey and his wife Mariama, arrived in Dubai.
At the time, Dubai was a burgeoning trade centre on the Arabian Gulf. The Varkey family had left Kerala, India to seek a better life for their family. What they found was a real need to educate children arriving in the city from around the world.
Their son, Sunny, added a visionary's ambition to a practitioner's experience. From simple roots in a family of teachers, GEMS Education, is today an international company with schools and education services in 48 countries. We still share the same mission - to provide quality education to everyone.
