KPC sponsors the annual diving festival

In order to commemorate the ancestors, parents and grand parents and recall the heroic deeds of the Kuwaiti people in terms of enduring hardship in search of a source of livelihood, Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC) makes sure to sponsor the annual diving festival, which is organized annually by the Maritime Heritage Committee of the Kuwaiti Marine Sports Club. The oil sector's sponsorship of this heritage festival is combined with its commitment to taking part in the preservation and promotion of authentic Kuwaiti heritage, which is a commitment fully consistent with the social responsibility approach strictly adopted by the bank. The snorkeling trip is one of the oldest traditions practiced by the Kuwaiti parents and grandparents. The annual diving trip organized in Kuwait during the summer is an initiative to revive the oldest and most historically important tradition of the Kuwaiti society. It is no secret that Kuwait Petroleum Corporation not only measures its successes by the development it made in the economic and physical aspect, but it also goes beyond it to measure the level of the added value it provides to the community in the State of Kuwait by contributing to the promotion of grassroots initiatives and partnership in social responsibility. The diving-for-pearl industry contributed considerably to the economic life in Kuwait before exporting oil in commercial quantities. In order to consecrate the diving heritage which the grandparents were good at, the State of Kuwait commemorates an annual festival under the supervision of the Kuwaiti marine club in July of each year in honor and recognition of the courage of the ancient divers and their painstaking efforts in search of pearls. The participants in this journey who are young Kuwaitis and amateurs of marine sports, fishing and diving, are subject to initial training in the safe methods of diving in search of pearls and then shall be subjected to an extensive test to judge their abilities and skills before they are allowed to take off on a dive trip into the sea to search for precious pearls.
