I met with lovely Lulwa AlAyoub (a.k.a. Lulu) and her sister Balsam today and was very inspired and excited about their cause and social entrepreneurship work they are doing not only in Kuwait, but around the world as well! They are trying to promote sports as means of empowerment for women and young females, and if you know the Arab world any better, you know that females are undeserved and represented in sports.

Be an advocate, attend the event if you’re a female living in Kuwait, and if not, spread the word around and mark your calendars for the 6th of March 2010!
