Warm and Loving Greetings to all of you!!!

Are you an Indian woman residing in Kuwait?

Would you like to belong to a place where you can be just yourself?

A space where you can be simply YOU; where your religion; your caste; your education and economic status does not matter?

Would you like to have a platform for self-expression?

Would you like to have or be a pillar of support to lean on???

Well... if YES, then you are just at the right place, reading the right content, at the right time...

The above thoughts and dreams have motivated the formation of a new wing under the aegis of Indians in Kuwait (IIK), namely the Indian Women In Kuwait (IWIK)—which shall be our own private little world for us and by us. We, the Indian women residing in Kuwait, need one unifying place to belong to; where our interests shall converge and our ideas are shared. It is this need that has encouraged some of us to take this initiative and present it to all of you... We do not have to pay a membership fee and/or take any pledge or be bound by any other commitment or obligation. We do not have to be a ‘somebody’, so as to be heard or spoken with. We are the Indian Women in Kuwait, and let us belong to a group, wherein we shall learn a bit; gain a bit; have a little fun; and express ourselves and our skills!!!

 

At the Diwali Mela, organised by IIK on November 2, 2012, we, the IWIK Team explored our potential and could successfully organise a series of events such as the Rangoli Competition, a live Cooking Session, and a range of other competitions and programs throughout the day. We propose to organise a wide variety of useful and fun-filled programs for all of us, in the months ahead. We intend to measure all our proposed programs against the following three parameters or yardsticks:

 
  • Is the program giving us any  information/knowledge/education?
  • Will the program allow some of us to showcase and  share our skills/talent?
  • Will the activity make us feel light, relaxed, and happy? 

IWIK aim is to provide Info-Entertainment Programs/ Activities to the Indian Women in Kuwait

Would you like to know us a little better?
