Equait is a recently-established youth group in Kuwait founded by Faisal Al Fuhaid and other members living in Kuwait. Their main purpose is to promote equality in all its forms in Kuwait, since as we know, Kuwait is notoriously known for having all forms of discrimination. Gender inequality, social discrimination, racial discrimination, you name it – we’ve got it. The embarrassing part is that you see a lot of Kuwaitis discriminating against one another AND being hostile and condescending towards foreigners.
Equait will be trying to raise awareness and promote equality to begin with, and will later move on to taking action to help affirm that we are all nothing more than human. What name we carry or how much money we have does not identify who we are.

Faisal will be introducing me to the rest of the team soon, and it will hopefully be a step towards a better Kuwait – if we all collaborate. Support this brilliant young man 😉
