Current efforts

Al-Babtain has established and financed a number of cultural ventures including the Abdulaziz Saud Al-Babtain Prize for Imam Al Bukhari grandchildren, which is an annual prize of U.S. $100,000 to restore cultural bridges between the Arab Nation and the recently independent Asian Islamic states, and Saud Al Babtain's Kuwaiti Commission for Post Graduate

He has also established the Al-Babtain Central Library for Arabic poetry, which opened to the public in January 2002 and is the only library of its kind in Kuwait.

In 2004 he established the Al Babtain Translation Center to support translations into and from Arabic, as a supplement to the translation project implemented in co-operation with UNESCO in Paris to translate works from Arabic to foreign languages. The Al Babtain Translation Center is directed by Dr. Mohammed Rumaihi.

The Al-Babtain Foundation for Poetic Creativity called in January 2016 for contributions to an Arabic epic on themes of peace, tolerance and love.
