Eid Mubarak and Season’s greetings.
We are a group of young Kuwaiti volunteers who joined the Oqsim training program conducted by Zawaya (the Group that launched the Oqsim Campaign) and ended our training with a project captures the ideas of participants, and at the same time tries to further such values as dedication and integrity at work, tolerance and celebration of pluralism and difference, and the value of volunteer work and ‘passing it forward’. Our project is an celebratory event and an accompanying campaign that we have entitled ‘Zawaya Ashaghaf Ahyainaha’ .زوايا الشغف.. أحييناها
This name carries the following message: it is that combination of passion and dedication that renders any output exceptional, hence one should never let his or her passion die.
