The Advocate for Westerners-Arab Relations center is a non-profit, non-governmental, and non-political organization working for promoting positive, constructive relations between Westerners and Arabs by organizing social activities and information services related to Arab and Islamic culture. "It is through culture that we preserve our heritage, that we express our creativity and that we share our individuality with the world," said Assistant Manager Dr. Teresa Lesher at AWAREs inauguration ceremony in October 2003. Over the years, AWARE has built a reputation as a consistent, trusted, and reliable resource for westerners in Kuwait.
The AWARE center is dedicated to become the cultural gateway for westerners to explore Arab/Islamic culture and civilization by facilitating social encounters, educational activities, dialogue, cultural exchange, and intercultural friendship.
Our Core Values
AWARE is guided by Arab and Islamic humanitarian values which advocate peaceful co-existence between cultures and civilizations. Among key values AWARE promotes are tolerance, better understanding and mutual respect between the westerners and Arab/Islamic world.
