Since inception, the Foundation has initiated numerous socio-economic projects for women, which aim to provide employment opportunities that in turn enhance their livelihoods. In tandem, these projects also work towards to enhancing women’s knowledge and skills in the production of traditional handicrafts, and in entrepreneurial skills. Such initiatives have succeeded in benefitting thousands of individuals, directly and indirectly, and today they continue to generate income for vulnerable communities and families across the Kingdom.
With the growth of the Foundation, and the evolvement of development in the Country, JRF has widened its approach to include sustainable community investments. By integrating and serving community development needs, the Foundation is now recognized nationally, regionally and internationally as an agent for positive change. Locally, the Foundation has achieved acclaim and standing as a leading Jordanian institution that contributes to the social and economic well-being of citizens, and its activities have become models for emulation. More importantly, the Foundation’s beneficiaries have proven to be a testament to the success of its programs, and are often acknowledged as “success stories”.
