Un­der the aus­pices of His High­ness the Amir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al-Ah­mad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, Ali Ab­dul­wa­hab Al Mutawa Com­mer­cial Co. (AAW) an­nounced it had spon­sored Men­tor Ara­bia’s gala din­ner un­der the theme, “Hand in Hand” in Kuwait on Oc­to­ber 22.

Hosted at the pri­vate ball­room of AAW Chair­man and Vice Chair­man of Board of Trustees of Men­tor Ara­bia Mr. Faisal Ali Ab­dul­wa­hab Al Mutawa, the event was at­tended by Pres­i­dent of Men­tor In­ter­na­tional, Her Majesty Queen Sil­via of Swe­den, and Chair­man of Men­tor Ara­bia, Prince Turki Bin Talal Bin Abdul Aziz.

Men­tor Ara­bia is a re­gional non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tion that aims to pro­vide ac­cess to a safe and healthy life for chil­dren and youth through em­pow­er­ing them, arm­ing them with knowl­edge, and en­hanc­ing their self-con­fi­dence to fight all forms of dan­ger­ous be­hav­iors and chal­lenges they might face.

More than 350 guests from pub­lic and pri­vate in­sti­tu­tions world­wide at­tended to take a close look at the work of Men­tor Ara­bia. The din­ner in­cluded the dis­tri­bu­tion of Men­tor Ara­bia Awards for young ac­tivists and in­flu­encers who have had a pos­i­tive im­pact on so­cial de­vel­op­ment, in ad­di­tion to a live sand show about the foun­da­tion’s work over the last 10 years. The event con­cluded with a dis­play of Kuwaiti her­itage through an orches­tra play­ing melodies con­vey­ing Kuwait’s his- tory and culture.

AAW Chair­man, Mr Faisal Ali Ab­dul­wa­hab Al Mutawa said in his open- ing ad­dress: “Com­pa­nies, gov­ern­ments and in­di­vid­u­als have a duty to sup­port non-profit in­sti­tu­tions, and at AAW our ob­jec­tives con­verge with those of Men­tor Ara­bia in terms of the de­vel­op­ment of ef­fec­tive aware­ness pro­grams, serv­ing so­cial is­sues, and em­pow­er­ing chil­dren and young peo­ple. To­gether, we aim to pro­vide them with the ap­pro­pri­ate means to use their en­ergy in a pos­i­tive way, as well as help­ing them with any prob­lems they might face in the fu­ture.”
