I would also like to thank our partners at LOYAC for their great input in making this program a huge success in spite of the challenges imposed by the pandemic.”

Khashti concluded: “We are proud to continue the strategic partnership between Zain and LOYAC for the 17th consecutive year. LOYAC is considered one of the top national projects dedicated to empowering Kuwait’s youth and progressing their skills with world-class programs, while offering them the appropriate environment to develop their talents within a social, educational, and entertaining setting.
