KUWAIT: Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR) launched a campaign yesterday in Kuwait International Airport, aimed at instilling the virtue of social responsibility in youngsters. The campaign, christened, “Kuwait’s Mark”, is part of efforts to impart on youths the importance of humanitarian and social values, academic official Dr Narjas Abul said in a statement to the press. Moreover, she noted that the campaign, which is part of an ongoing training program, would feature charitable acts such as handing out snacks to bystanders at the airport, which would help illustrate that such benevolence is embedded in Kuwaiti culture.

Further, Abul added that such endeavors are routinely undertaken by KISR as means of enhancing and honing youth skills and capabilities. Similarly, KISR official Muna Al-Failakawi noted that a total of 145 students from high school and college levels have been registered in the course. Meanwhile, Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) Director General Yousef Al-Fouzan pointed out that the airport is the country’s welcoming grounds, saying that such endeavors would give visitors a taste of the hospitality that awaits them. – KUNA
