Kuwait Canara Welfare Association (originally Kanara 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.
KCWA has seen a phenomenal growth in the past 29 years in terms of membership, activities and achievements. This has been possible only with the great support of offered by our valued members and well-wishers. Membership is extended to Catholics of Manglorean origin currently residing in Kuwait.
