Kuwait – Furthering its commitment to developing human capacities, Kuwait Financial Centre 'Markaz' announces that the company recently extended its support to the INNOVA International English School’s (IIES) efforts to facilitate the participation of students in the Harvard National Model United Nations (HNMUN) 2022 conference. IIES selected students from various schools in Kuwait to take part in the 68th annual session of HNMUN, which will be held in Boston, Massachusetts from 27-30 January 2022. Along with this initiative, a flagship application (U-APP) has been created to act as a directory for all premiere universities and colleges to help students explore their options and apply for multiple entities with a tap of a button.
For nearly seven decades, Harvard National Model United Nations has served as an annual forum for over 2,000 college-level students from across the globe to discuss the world’s most pressing issues and devise solutions to difficult challenges in international affairs. Over the four-day event, delegates will gain insight into the workings of the United Nations by actively participating in the resolution of important global issues, such as covid-19 ramifications, and will develop their skills in negotiation, diplomacy and communication.
The sponsorship comes in line with Markaz’s corporate social and economic responsibility strategy, which envisages the company’s active participation in community service and its contribution to building a strong base of active and qualified youth in Kuwait. Through supporting INNOVA, Markaz aims to play a pivotal role in empowering youth by providing them opportunities to acquire leadership skills and capabilities from the world’s finest platforms.

Al-Nusif, Managing Director, Wealth Management and Business Development at Markaz, said: “As a company committed to always working towards investing in youth for a sustainable future for Kuwait, Markaz has supported and partnered with many organizations to contribute to human capacity building, and further enhance the skills of individuals in various educational, cultural, sports, health and economic fields.. Through our sponsorship of the INNOVA initiative, we aim to nurture a new generation of informed and highly skilled young leaders who are capable of transforming the Kuwaiti society and economy.”
