The Kuwait Fund Public Awareness Campaign 2011

Television Campaign

Founded in 1961, the year of Kuwait’s independence, the Kuwait Fund is now operating with a capital of $14 billion in more than 100 countries worldwide. Fifty years ago the emphasis for many newly independent countries was to develop infrastructure and an industrial base. Today as the Fund expands into Latin America and Central Asia, increasingly the emphasis is on human development, responding to those most in need and working to ensure that people in the poorest countries can work themselves out of poverty. These films profile the scope and scale of the Fund’s current operations.
