Kuwait Awqaf Public Foundation
AWQAF Project is based on a conviction that Waqf – as a concept and an experience – has a great developmental potential which entitles it to contribute effectively to the Muslim communities and cope with the challenges which confront the Muslim nation.
Ever since the Islamic era, Muslims have generally sought to document ownership. They exerted several efforts to maintain rights by carrying out documentation procedures. They played a prominent role in this respect although the foreign resources disregard referring to it. Based on the foregoing and since the establishment of Awqaf Public Foundation in 1993, it has paid attention to documenting endowments in the Islamic world.
The State of Kuwait has been commissioned to play the role of the State coordinating the efforts of the Islamic countries in the field of endowment by virtue of Resolution of the Sixth Conference of the Ministers of Endowments in the Islamic States held in the Indonesian Capital (Jakarta) in October 1997 AD.
