- JRF established international presence in order to build new channels of cooperation that will lead to enhanced JRF program implementation through the following means:
JRF partnerships with international entities fosters an “exchange of experiences” methodology that is related to JRF’s development models for social and economic initiatives, in addition to collaboration on regional and international levels.
A fundamental initiative that JRF will be championing is the establishment of educational links between childcare and family professionals in Jordan and their international counterparts. Additionally, JRF endeavors to promote the exchange of expertise and information related to community empowerment initiatives with international entities.
JRF Product Marketing and Promotion
The quality of JRF’s products and designs provides an excellent opportunity to develop new marketing and export channels for its products internationally. This will lead to more employment opportunities and an increase in the level of income for Jordanian women living in rural communities. In support of this, JRF continues to work towards identifying venues and partners who can and will promote the Foundation’s high-quality home accessories and handicrafts internationally.
