Sharjah Delegation Visits JRF
A delegation from Sheikha Jawaher Bint Mohammed Al Qasimi’s Office for Philanthropic Initiatives has paid the Jordan River Foundation (JRF) a visit today, during which they explored the Foundation’s various social and developmental services.
As the delegation visited the Queen Rania Family & Child Center (QRFCC) and the Jordan River Designs project in Al Karma Center, both of which JRF subsidiaries, the General Director Enaam Barrishi provided them with a brief history about JRF. She described the way JRF’s programs evolved since the Foundation’s launch in 1995, and how they were designed to serve and empower the community. She also showcased the efforts that go into these programs, with the direct involvement of Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah, to ensure comprehensive development throughout Jordan, where a needs assessment takes place first to identify the needs of each area, and then design developmental programs that address those needs and contribute to the community’s overall improvement.
The Emirati delegation has expressed their admiration of the quality of services and program that JRF offers to increase Jordanian household incomes, and to economically and socially empower them to improve their livelihoods.
It is worth mentioning that this was a preliminary visit, one that will result in further meetings between the two entities to look into cooperation areas in the near future.
The delegation is set to visit other non-governmental organizations in Jordan which work with women in handicrafts, as well as handicrafts business owners.
