AMMAN — HRH Prince Hassan, accompanied by Their Royal Highnesses Princess Sarvath and Princess Sumaya, HRH Prince Raad and HH Prince Mired, on Wednesday attended an interactive dialogue session titled "Muslim young women and people with disabilities’ education, recruitment and entrepreneurship" organised by the Young Muslim Women's Association (YMWA) Centre for Special Education.

Prince Hassan highlighted the importance of centres designated for empowering people with disabilities for the promotion of citizenship, demonstrating the need for developing an interdisciplinary approach to education and empowerment that focuses on human dignity.

He also expressed gratitude for all care providers who deliver services for marginalised people, which is part of the community's own development efforts, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

Secretary of Young Muslim Women's Association Centre for Special Education Nermeen Nabelsi briefed the gathering on the centre's strategy for the coming years.

HH Prince Mired, president of the Higher Council for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, Minister of Social Development Basma Ishaqat, diplomats and representatives of local and international institutions attended the event.

HRH Princess Sarvath established the YMWA in 1972, while the Young Muslim Women's Association Centre for Special Education was established in 1974 with the aim of providing care and education for persons with intellectual disabilities from birth to 25 years of age.
