Al-Razaq means “The Provider” and one of our most important values is corporate citizenship. We build and maintain strong bridges of support with the community through education, civic society, small business, and employee sponsorship programs.
Community Involvement Initiatives

Moreover, we assist Houston-area small businesses with their development, growth, and business networking opportunities through our Mentor-Protégé agreements. We also participate in small business expos, summits, seminars, and networking events such as General Procurement Connections and Women’s Business Enterprise Alliance (WBEA).
Contribution to Yuri’s Night Bay Area 2011
Most recently, Al-Razaq contributed to Yuri’s Night Bay Area 2011. Human Spaceflight became a reality 50 years ago with the launch of a bell-shaped capsule called “Vostok 1” on April 12th, 1961. The capsule was carrying Soviet Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, who took his place in history as the first human to leave the bounds of Earth and enter outer space. After being just an idea for four years, Yuri’s Night, the World Party for Space, sprang into existence at the United Nations’ Space Generation Advisory Council Graz Conference in September of 2000. Yuri’s Night has become an annual event and is dedicated to bringing students and teachers together for a day of interactive learning, experiential science and fun.
