Khutwa, a non-profit organisation under the wing of Bahrain Trust Foundation, kicked off the second edition of its annual outdoor event ‘The K market’. The event, which is taking place at Water Garden City, will run for three-weekends, ending on Jan 5.
Founded in 2014, Khutwa was established with the aim of promoting three main pillars self-sustainability, recreation and welfare. The K Market is one of the many initiatives undertaken by Khutwa to raise money for the organisation and its causes, and is in line with their mission to create smart and practical solutions which secure a better life for people in need. Beyond raising money, the market aims to promote home businesses by acting as a platform for them to grow and gain exposure, establishing them within the market as a result. Additionally, it aims to support other charitable causes whilst providing a hub for local performers and artists to showcase their talent. Following the success of the previous edition in 2017, which attracted over 3,500 visitors over 3 days, this year’s K Market has doubled in size and will run over three-weekends. The market will feature shopping, food, live entertainment and a kids’ area. Admission for children below 7 years of age is free, those aged 7 and above will have an entry fee of BD2 with all funds going towards the support of the charitable cause.
