Reminiscing Kuwait  II

A tale of a Country

Concept

A single item used to have many different uses … Today we need many different items to perform a single task.

To every journey, there is a path … to every path, there is a destination … There was a time when Kuwait was on its way to being an Arab utopia through the vision of its enlightened leaders. Unfortunately, time often manages to twist history right in front of our eyes, without us even having the slightest of notice. Let us take you through the journey of time from 1936 to 1964, by screening a collection of historic articles, pictures portraying different aspects of Kuwaiti lifestyle during that period.

By taking you through that journey, we will let you decide of where we were, where we are, and what went wrong along the way…

Take a look at the collection here

Giving Back to our Community

20% of all profits from the Reminiscing Kuwait II exhibition sales will be donated to Kuwait Dream Centre for Children with special needs. “We don’t not look at a nationality when a child is in need, we see a child who has special needs.” Dawn Jawhar

Kuwait Dream Centre is situated in the Khaldiya area of Kuwait city. We opened our doors in October 2007 offering a much needed centre to children with special educational needs. We have fast gained a reputation as one of Kuwait’s best Nurseries, we offer a well structured programme to children aged between 2/12 to 5/12 years old. The nursery caters to a number of cases; we have children with Down syndrome, Cerebral Palsy and Autistic children. As you may know the government of Kuwait is very generous with special needs children who are Kuwaiti. However Kuwait Dream Centre recognizes that every child has the right to improvement, it is our policy to focus on the strengths of a child never the weakness. We do not look at a nationality when a child comes to us, we see a child who has special needs. That’s why we decided that each year we will allocate ten children who are none Kuwaiti, a place at Dream Centre. We have children of Lebanese, Indian, and Egyptian nationalities; all other these children attend full time with full services such as speech, occupational and physical therapy sessions. Some of their families are extremely low income families we do not turn a child away provided we have a vacancy. We do however work throughout, to cover the costs of offering these ten children a place at the centre. We believe if we offer such children a place by the grace of Allah we will be guided. The centre also runs an afternoon programme for  children again many none Kuwaiti children attend and many come free or for as little as 20KD, we do depend on donations in order to continue with our programmes, we have an open door policy and welcome any one at any time, to come and see the most wonderful happy children. Any donation is spent completely on the centre to improve the lives of those less fortunate. We look forward to hearing from you in the future.
