Ooredoo Telecom, the Qatar-headquartered multinational telecommunications company, has partnered with KidZania Kuwait, an award-winning children’s city concept globally recognized for its unique blend of education and entertainment, in line with its vision of enhancing children’s capabilities. 

The announcement came during the official opening of “Ooredoo Telecom Center” in KidZania, which included a private introductory tour of KidZania. With the partnership, Ooredoo aims to support children to shape their identity and introduce them to the basic principles of the Internet and the fifth-generation (5G).

Ooredoo opened its own telecom center in KidZania Kuwait for children to enjoy the interactive activities prepared for them. KidZania is a safe and interactive edutainment center where children can experience more than 100 role-playing activities in a replica of a real city. The various playful activities of KidZania are specifically designed to aid physical and intellectual growth, and contribute to the development of their skills.

KidZania operates like a real city complete with buildings, paved streets, vehicles, a functioning economy, and recognizable destinations in the form of “establishments” sponsored by Marketing Partners who represent leading multi-national, regional, and local brands.
