Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

Sheikha In­ti­sar Al-Sabah, Chair­per­son of AlNuwair Pos­i­tive Ini­tia­tive launched in 2013, has af­firmed that the youth is the coun­try’s real wealth. She said in a state­ment that the ‘Ba­reeq’ pro­gram on youth is launched con­cur­rently with the 2017 Na­tional Day cel­e­bra­tions, adding that the pro­gram is the first in its kind in both Kuwait and the Mid­dle East that in­stills pos­i­tive prin­ci­ples through events at Kuwaiti schools.

“The aim of the pro­gram is to dis­sem­i­nate pos­i­tive sit­u­a­tions when deal­ing with oth­ers,” she said. “We tar­get youth as they makes up the largest num­ber of Kuwaiti cit­i­zens and is the coun­try’s real nu­cleus, she said yes­ter­day. The pro­gram will train stu­dents on pos­i­tiv­ity through re­searches and sci­en­tific stud­ies based on psy­chol­ogy, and en­hance their in­stinc­tive be­long­ing which help them feel sat­is­fac­tion.”

She called for pre­par­ing young peo­ple sci­en­tif­i­cally, bod­ily and psy­cho­log­i­cally to make them qual­i­fied for re­solv­ing prob­lems and over­com­ing dif­fi­cul­ties fac­ing the coun­try, in­di­cat­ing this will lead to ev­er­last­ing pros­per­ity, safety and sta­bil­ity in the coun­try. Sheikha In­ti­sar said that some train­ing cour­ses were or­ga­nized at a num­ber of schools in dif­fer­ent ar­eas for this pur­pose, adding the cour­ses were highly ap­pre­ci­ated and at­tracted by stu­dents.

Mean­while, Ro­qaiya Hus­sein, head of the pro­gram, said that it aims to boost pos­i­tive thought and achieve psy­cho­log­i­cal wel­fare to help youth get be­hav­ioral bal­ance. The pro­gram will also en­able youth to achieve their sci­en­tific and prac­ti­cal goals pos­i­tively and mod­er­ately, she added, not­ing that up to 66 cadres at 13 schools have been so far trained on the pro­gram. —KUNA
