‘Mubaratuna’ project - a govt, private sector collaboration
The “Mubaratuna” (our match) football project had become the flagship project displaying the Kuwaiti government and private sector’s willingness to collaborate for the wellbeing and the benefit of the youth. With around 111 football pitches located in several governorates, it is suffice to say that the Mubaratuna project, which offers reasonably priced booking fees, is providing topnotch services to football lovers in Kuwait.
Speaking to KUNA about Mubaratuna, Abdullah Al-Adwani, head of the project, said that Mubaratuna began in 2014 with around 36 pitches available. Since the initiating of the project, thousands of people have used the facilities funded by the Ministry of Education, Ministry of State for Youth Affairs, and the Kuwait Union for Cooperative Societies, indicated Al-Adwani.
The chief purpose of the project is to encourage the youth and society to seek selfbetterment and healthy life styles, said the official who indicated that booking a pitch was done online. On the merits of Mubaratuna project, football enthusiast Nawaf Al-Enizi, 30, said that in the past, fees were so high that it was difficult to pay KD 30 and above to book a pitch. Now it only costs around KD 2 to play football at one of Mubaratuna’s fields, which is amazing, said Al-Enizi. — KUNA
