Faisal Al Fuhaid Entrepreneur

Faisal Al-Fuhaid is a social entrepreneur and activist from Kuwait. At the age of 17, Faisal and his friend Leanah Al-Awadhi co-founded Equait, a non-profit social initiative focusing on promoting tolerance, respect, and equality in Kuwait. In 2013, Faisal came up with the idea of hosting what is now known as the Cross-Cultural Diwaniya, a monthly discussion forum where local residents gather to discuss and debate topics of importance relating to the community - including social, political, and economic issues - in a multilateral and open environment, as well as offering constructive solutions to the topics being discussed. Equait has hosted over 20 Cross-Cultural Diwaniya forums to date, which have been attended and moderated several important figures in the fields of diplomacy, academia, and development, including the British Ambassador to Kuwait.
