As women’s empowerment has recently become a priority in civic, private, and public sectors to date, there is little coordination between the stakeholders involved and the issues and narratives that are being highlighted as they do not always represent the real aspirations of the diversity of women in Kuwait.


KIPCO has decided to create Munjiza, a platform that highlights those extraordinary women and their work by building a community where women can strengthen and create partnerships for future collaboration. Munjiza focuses on women leaders in Kuwait and the specific NGO’s that concentrate on different issues that relate to women of the community seeking to foster positive social change in Kuwait. Munjiza facilitates the introduction and collaboration of NGO’s to each other to create a community that can empower each other and learn and grow together.
