NUKS USA rec­og­nizes Zain’s sup­port

Kuwait Times - - FROM THE ARABIC PRESS -

The Na­tional Union of Kuwaiti Stu­dents in the United States (NUKS USA) rec­og­nized Zain’s ex­cep­tional and con­tin­u­ous sup­port as a Plat­inum spon­sor of the Union’s 33rd an­nual con­fer­ence that was re­cently held in San Francisco, Cal­i­for­nia.

NUKS USA Trea­surer Da­wood AlBu­sairi pre­sented Zain Kuwait’s Cor­po­rate Com­mu­ni­ca­tions and Re­la­tions Di­rec­tor Waleed Al-Khashti with the recog­ni­tion to­ken dur­ing the spon­sors award­ing cer­e­mony. The union ex­pressed their ap­pre­ci­a­tion of Zain’s con­tin­u­ous ef­forts as the event’s main sup­porter for over 13 con­sec­u­tive years.

The con­fer­ence, which came un­der the pa­tron­age of HE the Min­is­ter of Ed­u­ca­tion and Min­is­ter of Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Dr Bader Al-Essa and at­ten­dance of the Kuwaiti Am­bas­sador to the US Sheikh Salem Ab­dul­lah AlJaber Al-Sabah, an­nu­ally wel­comes the largest gath­er­ing of Kuwaiti stu­dents out­side of Kuwait who at­tend from all over the USA. Zain’s pres­ence in the event con­veys its en­thu­si­asm to in­ter­act with the fu­ture gen­er­a­tions of Kuwaiti youth, es­pe­cially those who pur­sue their ed­u­ca­tion abroad.

Dur­ing its par­tic­i­pa­tion, Zain launched a new pro­gram to em­power and sup­port Kuwaiti en­trepreneurs study­ing in the US. The pro­gram fea­tures an an­nual com­pe­ti­tion that re­ceives and eval­u­ates stu­dents’ projects and small busi­nesses in the ar­eas of tech­no­log­i­cal in­no­va­tion. The win­ner re­ceived a twoweek paid trip prize to Zain’s strate­gic part­ner Huawei, a global tech­nol­ogy in­no­va­tion leader, where they will host the win­ner in their main head­quar­ters in China for an amaz­ing in­tern­ship pro­gram.

Zain also or­ga­nized its an­nual foot­ball com­pe­ti­tion for stu­dents for the fourth con­sec­u­tive year, where the com­pany awarded “the cham­pi­ons” team for win­ning the first place ti­tle and “Al-Mu­tasem Bil­lah Mo­bile” team for win­ning the sec­ond place ti­tle. The com­pe­ti­tion also fea­tured a friendly match that wit­nessed the par­tic­i­pa­tion of a num­ber of Kuwaiti sports and arts stars.

Zain strongly be­lieves in the role of the pri­vate sec­tor in sup­port­ing the ef­forts and plans of the pub­lic sec­tor to bring pos­i­tive change into the so­ci­ety, es­pe­cially ef­forts that em­power in­no­va­tive ideas. Zain has adopted many pro­grams and ini­tia­tives to em­power and sup­port the youth’s in­no­va­tive ideas through the years.

Par­tic­i­pat­ing in this event af­firms Zain’s role as a lead­ing na­tional com­pany that takes the devel­op­ment of young peo­ple se­ri­ously, with the ul­ti­mate in­ten­tion to in­duce pos­i­tive change within the Kuwaiti so­ci­ety.
