KCWA( Kuwait Canara Welfare Association)

“This holds true for four noble gentlemen Francis Misquith, Charles Vaz, Elias Saldanha and Johnny Misquith, who came to Kuwait to earn their daily bread. As their steps steadied towards success in making a living, they were inspired to be of service to their fellow brethren in their homeland, and thus Kuwait Canara Welfare Association (originally Kuwait Catholic Welfare Association) emerged in July 1988, with the sole purpose of helping the neediest children in their education.

 

As the sowed seed started growing into a plant, the strength of KCWA also started increasing and its horizon expanded. In addition to its primary motto "In pursuit of providing education to the poor children", KCWA also wanted to preserve the Mangalorean culture and keep the Konkani language alive in Kuwait. With Mother Mary as its Patroness, KCWA embarked on its journey in community welfare in September 1989, by celebrating the Monthi Fest (Feast of Nativity) for the first time in Kuwait’s history and shared the New Harvest’s fellowship meal with the parishioners. Since then, this feast is being celebrated with more than 3,500 devotees, irrespective of their nationalities, with Mother Mary’s blessings every year.

 

Earlier with very limited funds, a fixed amount was sent to deserving schools through their respective Parish priests. But later as the association grew, better ideas resulted in fixing a specific amount in the banks as KCWA’s education fund and channelling the interest earned towards educating the needy children. Today, 160 parishes / Institutions are enjoying the benefits out of the income generated from the deposits upto `1 lakh each.

 

In the year 2000, KCWA added another feather to its cap, by establishing the Computer Education Centre at St. Agnes Special School (SASS) with an aim to provide free computer education to the underprivileged physically challenged children. Sensing the need of providing accommodation for such children as well as teachers, a 3-storey building was constructed in the 9 cents land owned by the Apostolic Carmel Congregation at Bendoor, who most graciously took charge of managing this centre. With the help of all benefactors, donors and well-wishers, KCWA disbursed about 38.5 lakhs for the entire project.

 

Although primary education was the main motto, KCWA well understood the need of extra finances for children for their higher studies and professional courses. Bearing this in mind, KCWA established a Scholarship fund of `10 lakhs in St. Joseph’s Engineering College, Vamanjoor. From the interest generated from this fund, two needy but deserving Engineering students from Mangalore diocese will be able to realize their dreams, annually. Besides this, KCWA has honoured several other requests from individuals in the field of education and has extended help after verifying their authenticity.
