    KUWAIT CHILD RIGHTS SOCIETY

    TKUWAIT CHILD’S RIGHTS SOCIETY KCRS operating under the Kuwait Medical Association is a non-profit organization promoting children’s rights in Kuwait society based on the UN convention of the rights of children. Established by two Kuwaiti doctors in 2008, who witnessed a high number of child abuse cases while in duty. In 2010 a collaborative study between KCRS and the Psychiatry Department in Kuwait University revealed the high prevalence of child abuse in Kuwait. KCRS has since focused on spreading awareness about this taboo subject and advocating for every child in Kuwait. KCRS was directly involved in the formulation of Child Rights Law which was finally passed in May 2015 with the guideline published in January 2016. As the issue is very harsh and hard for this society to accept and acknowledge, we are still at the early stages of implementation.

    KUWAITI ASSOCIATION FOR LEARNING DIFFERENCES

    The Kuwaiti Association for Learning Differences (KALD) is a social welfare association that collaboratively works towards helping all individuals, especially students in private schools in Kuwait, who have learning difficulties and/or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder through setting up awareness programs, training courses, and other educational activities.

    Kald that was established in 2007 by Mrs. Amaal Al Sayyer (Chairwoman) with the help of a number of volunteers is funded by Masharaee Al Khair and Kuwait Projects Company (Holding). Its Board of Trusties includes specialists, educators and parents who believe in KALD’s cause. Members of kald have chosen “learning differences” instead of “learning difficulties” because they believe that the targeted students are intelligent people and the only difference between them and other students is that they have their own way of learning.
